Shared zone and frequency with Les Cรจdres

This airport is only a few miles to the north of the busier Les Cรจdres/Cedars (CSS3), and shares a common zone and ATF frequency of 123.5 MHz (also the frequency for Ottawa/Rockcliffe CYRO, so it gets busy).

Like Les Cรจdres, it's under Montreal Terminal's class C shelf, so if you're VFR, you need to stay below 2,000 ft MSL unless you're talking to them. It's a flat area with lots of fields and no high towers, so low flight isn't a problem.

The runway's not as bad as it looks

The runway looks like a patchwork quilt of different shades of asphalt when you're on approach, but the surface is actually fine.

If you're VFR, note that you need to stay below 2,000 ft MSL unless you talk to Montreal Terminal (and they're often too busy to talk much, though they try to accomodate). The land is flat, there are no high towers in the area, and there are fields for emergency landing in every direction, so it's not really a problem flying around at 1,500 ft until you're out from under the class C shelf.

Health screening during the 2014-15 Ebola crisis

When I visited in 2015 during the Ebola crisis, there was fairly strict health screening in place. We had our temperatures taken before we entered the terminal building by local authorities (common at all public buildings), then again before we boarded the Air France flight, by a security team from France. On arrival at CDG, we were checked again exiting the plane, then those of us who had started our trips in Ebola-affected countries were pulled off the Paris-Montreal flight first, while all other passengers were forced to remain seated, and given a checkup by a public health nurse.

Mountain (sort-of)

The mountain (by eastern standards) is just behind the field, and looms large when you're crossing overhead from the south to join the downwind for 08. It's good to warn any passengers that you'll appear to be flying straight towards the trees.

Still open (2019)

If flew in again this spring. Yes, it's still here. The airport is a bit shabby and run-down, but you can't beat it for convenienceโ€”just a quick short distance away from the centre of the city.

Reply to @gabiLi: Thanks for letting us know! I've gone ahead and made the change.

In the future, if you notice airport info that needs updating, you're also welcome to make the change yourself, using the edit button at the top right of the map.

re: LFSL

Reply to @Tgd: Thanks for the update! We're a community-driven initiative, and if you have time, you are very welcome to edit the airport entry to make the changes. If not, then hopefully one of our other volunteers will have a chance to get to it.

The lost villages

To the east of here, along the St Lawrence River, you can see the old Highway 2, several sideroads, and even some village street grids and lots under the water. They were submerged with the opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway in 1959, and flying over them is still an interesting (and creepy) experience.

Procedures: summer glider ops for air cadets

[copied from Facebook]

The Air Cadets Gliding Operations have commenced for the Fall season at Smiths Falls flying Club on weekends.

When Air Cadet Glider Ops are in progress there is no inactive side of the circuit. Gliders and Tow Planes do right hand circuits and use both the main and grass Runway. The Glider โ€œzoneโ€ extends up to 3,000 ft on the โ€œinactiveโ€ side.

Joining the circuit from inactive side should be avoided, coordinate with Glider Ops on 122.7 if unsure. Joining the circuit straight into downwind is highly recommended.

Lived here when my Dad (PAF) was stationed here, circa 1962-65; lived in a Quonset hut....fond memories of pilots (Filipinos and U.S. servicemen) doing their first solo flights and getting "baptized" with a pail of water (with the obligatory goat poop and kids' pee) after which, they have to treat everyone with pineapple pie bought at a bakery in town. Fun times. Lights out/taps when the generator runs out of gas.

Gillam Aviation Fuel

Avgas and Jet fuel are both offered at YGX, better prices than Thompson or Churchill with 24/7 service. As for the comment above, I purchased the company October 1, 2018 and avgas does not require 24 hour notice, but any notice with an accurate time is always appreciated!

Nakakahiya kayong lahat

Nagpapanggap na tourist tapos mag tarabaho ng illegal sa ibang bansa. Magsisinungaling pa sa IO at pag nahuli magagalit pa. Kapal ng mukha nyo.

Mga kapwa Pilipino

Itigil nyo na pag TNT nyo sa ibang bansa. Bawal ang ginagawa ninyo. Kaya ang strict ng mga ibang bansa sa atin, at simpleng tourism lang kailangan pa ng visa. Dahil yan sa inyo. Tapos ang dami nyo pang pakulo at mag sisinungaling pa kayo sa immigration officer. Alam nilang transit point ang hong kong. At pag papanggap nyong tourista kayo, luma na yan. Di sila tanga. Ok? Kaya please tama na. Ang pangit ng tingin ng ibang banda sa inyo. Nakakahiya kayo.

2019 - rapidly becoming unlandable

Surface is in good shape, trees are colonizing in from the edges. High wing planes may be ok for a while, low wing gliders are marginal.

Long gone

What remains of strip has been dug up for gravel pit.

Long gone

Not even possible to identify where the strip was. The coal mine likely went through here years ago.
