What a shame!
Anonymous flyer on Peterborough Airport view thread
 

Restaurant is great, and with renovations complete and the new school onsite, airport is now bee-hive of activity - but what was once a beautiful and accessible airport in cottage country has become a money grab for management (Loomex)

Price for fuel is also very high. There are no more GA friendly airport gestures ...including (but certainly not limited to) no more overnight tie down waived with fuel, no more waiving or reducing tie-down for aircraft unexpectedly grounded with mechanical issues or weathered in. Hangars are also nice but extremely expensive.

Everyone originally thought that the increase in volume would help keep costs down, but with Loomex (operating at their healthy margin) now involved with a back-office load of people, almost everything has a new (2x) cost. Anything remaining that does not - soon will. Same story at Lindsay but without renovations or a flying school.
