What a shame!

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.

What did I see?

One evening last year I witnessed a small plane lift off from this place. It was evening and dark and what caught my eye was the sphere being towed by this small airplane. It was internally lit an abou 5 feet across, perhaps 100' feet behind the plane. I watched it fly westward toward schomberg for about 10 minutes. Any ideas?

Great customer service from Windsor Airport's Ken Sawchuck

Letter to the Editor, Windsor Star, April 15th, 2017

Dear Sir / Madam,

In light of the recent United Air fiasco, I would like to share a similar circumstance that happened to me April 3rd at the Windsor Airport. I had purchased a priority assigned seat for the Sunwing flight from Windsor to Cancun scheduled to leave Monday April 3rd. Unfortunately, due to a number of different complications, the flight was overbooked by 1, and I, being the only single traveler was β€œbumped”. This could have been a disaster however, thanks to Ken Sawchuck at Windsor Airport, who handled the situation honestly and with great consideration for the significant impact it had on my vacation, alternate travel plans were agreed to. Sunwing has also promised to look into the matter and implement actions to correct the problem and prevent the same thing from happening to some-one else. Many thanks to Sunwing, an airline that does care about their customers and understands good customer service, to Ken Sawchuck who sensitively managed a difficult situation, my travel agent Jacqueline Poupard from Valente Travel who was a great resource and to Sunwing’s Yoanky Sosa who managed the details at Cayo Coco airport when I arrived at my alternate destination.

With Regards,

Jayne McMahon,

Windsor, Ontario.

I recently enquired with the Town about landing and have been advised that the airport has been sold. I am unsure to whom. Current cycle of CFS still reports the Town as the operator.

Dining at Golf Course

I've flown down from CYRO a few times and gone for brunch at the golf course. There is a footpath off the end of RWY25 (be sure to keep an eye on the sky until you are well away from the threshold!) that leads straight to the clubhouse where they are very friendly and welcoming, and have a good menu.

As for the beach and picnic ground across the street - it is just a short walk, but as of August 2017 it was closed for tree chopping (emerald borers have killed a lot of the trees). It's run by the Parks of the St Lawrence, so call them first before promising the kids a fly & swim!

The YVR department for controlling taxi cabs coming to pick up travelers at the airport should all be let go!

20 minute wait line! 60 people in line! No taxi cabs!

There are 300 to 400 taxi cabs in a holding area but no one is calling them.

World class airport with no taxi service.

Total BS

Bad airport for connections

If you're arriving at Terminal 1 and your connecting flight leaves from Terminal 3, you'll have to retrieve your checked baggage, exit the secure area, and line up again in the public security line in Terminal 3. Be warned.

Waiting or Dropping off Passengers?

Great Airport if you understand that the upper section near the visible front of the airport is more for buses, taxi and shuttles. It is much easier to unload or pickup a passenger by parking the vehicle near the entrance door in the 1st level parking lot. It is best your vehicle is parked here in case a plane or your passenger is delayed. When the parking kiosk is closed just print out and pay for parking at the machine on your way out just before the exit door to the parking lot. Keep your receipt to scan to open the gate. A bit different, just takes a little to get used to.

Valpiro FBO at Val D'Or airport

Val D'Or was great experience!, Valpiro FBO staff were helpful, friendly and efficient, and we had ground power as soon as we had shut down. We had emailed them overnight and, following their response we phoned and made contact. We arrived and parked on the ramp nearest to their facility and were airborne again 58 minutes later after the refuel, coffee and loo stop! Definitely a top-tip in Northern Canada.

Old Bold pilots, Sid and a wonderous field of dreams, Can av

Haven't been there since Sid was the major domo. Times change.

Glad to hear it is still being used, by pilots. I recommend you disregard

the negative waves of the poster above. Yeah Sid might have been Sid,

which meant no time for fool's. But at 17, he was 'the man', to me.

A 'hail fellow well met'. Taught me what a short field 270 degree approach

should look like. And other things from the characters that haunted Sids

majical aerodrome.

Selling, may close

The owners want to retire after years of great service to the general aviation community, so they're listing the land for $2.5 million. It could remain open as an airport, but with subdivisions popping up all around, I don't know if the odds are good.

Story (The Citizen doesn't manage links well, so this will probably break soon):

Airport Manager

The Airport Manager (and Dropzone Operator) is Tom McCarthy, one of the finest and friendliest people you could meet in aviation. Buy him a coffee and he could tell you volumes about the history of the place.

General Aviation not welcome there

The National Defence ask 14$ landing fees and Promotion Saguenay ask another 16$. An additionnal 25$ fees per passenger was requested and 35$ for daytime parking. Considering that I had 3 passengers on that day, the journey costed me 140$, which is very expensive in comparison to similar airport size.

No bar or restaurant

I am presently sitting in the international departures area with a two and a half hour wait for my flight. After quite a stressful morning getting to the airport, checking in and clearing security, my wife said she would like to relax with a glass of wine. A cold beer would have been very welcome to me as well. On searching Departures however, I couldn't find a bar or even a proper restaurant --- just an array of fast food joints that I normally avoid at all costs. On enquiring in a duty free shop I was told that indeed there was nowhere to get a glass of wine other than in the airline lounges. For a major international airport this is really. Not good enough.

Kenora seaplane base is across from hospital on T-docks and not where the map indicates it is. There is 100LL and jet fuel available on River air side and 100 LL on Kenora Air side of dock. Takeoffs are outside the bay running almost East/West and no high speed taxiing in past buoy. Boats won't slow down for you or get out of the way.
