Improved Surfaces/Hangars

The runway is now paved! (40' wide), and they are adding a second heated hangar which should be completed in Nov 2020.

When making your radio calls, be sure to use "Steinbach South" Traffic. As "Steinbach" (the other airfield three miles north of this one) shares the same frequency.

Grass runway

There seems to be a parallel grass runway right beside 03/21. It's not listed in the CFS, but the diagram shows its length as 1,800 ft.

Turf Conditions Were Great

Firm grass, no issues in a cherokee six. Quite the approach into the westerly direction. Amazing views

Picture of bcrosby

Watch out for the construction site on the approach end of 1

Lots of digging and mounds of dirt

Picture of bcrosby

Still Well Maintained

Turf was solid with a few embedded rocks here and there.. There is J-A1 fuel on site, probably for the helicopters. No probs in a Cherokee Six

Is this a real airport?

I've been experimenting with some code for an exercise for students - trying to find the world's highest airports. This comes up at number 1 but I really don't think there's an airport at 30,000 feet above the north pole.

So many jets

Came in on a Saturday evening and the massive ramp was almost completely full! Very friendly staff.

Seward is a work in progress for me.

I am close to having a working airport here, with some known problems that when I post it up anyone with more knowledge on msfs2020 design is welcome to my source and can edit and fix anything they like. Most of the problems i am having are related to terraforming. I have managed to get a relatively flat airport with a couple of bumps at the edges of the apron. However the airport altitude is wrong as I couldn't figure out how to change it in the polygon. I comes in at the default of around 10' and should be 27' . I will post a comment here when I get the first version posted somewhere. with instructions on contacting me for the files to edit.

According to MSFS2020 the code for this airport is O64, but that clashes with "Port of Catoosa Heliport" so I have left it blank.

The connection between runway 17/35 and Runway 12/30 located at the end of runway 35 has been demolished

04MA Update

As of 2020, Google Maps imagery shows there's a Cessna parked behind the house at 1020 N Broadway, and the field across the street is still cleared enough for takeoffs. The four digit FAA identifier 04MA indicates this is for private use only; it is still listed as active on AirNav and FAA sources. I think that "anonymous user" may have had an ax to grind.

Picture of animebirder

Mistaken identity?

The person listed by the previous commenter is listed as the manager at Wolf River Airport (54N) in Rossville, Tennessee; I see no current listing for a manager for Wolf River Ranch Airport MS53 in Mississippi in any internet searches. This airport is no longer listed as open in AirNav in any case and trees have grown on half of the previous runway surface in recent satellite imagery.

Second World War

During the Second World War, this airport hosted the No. 7 Air Observer School of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan, and the No. 14 Elementary Flying Training School was right across the road: http://bcatp.org/139-no-7-air-observer-school/

Today, the airport is privately-operated, but still hosts the 3 Canadian Forces Flying Training School: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/3_Canadian_Forces_Flying_Training_School

Second World War

From 1941 to 1944, St-Hubert hosted the No. 13 Service Flying Training School of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan (BCATP), on the military side of the airfield that formerly served as RCAF Station St-Hubert (later CFB St-Hubert until the 1990s, when it was decommissioned).

From a problem report: "Another business has bought the airport and is now using it as a solar panel field. Nobody can access the airport unless authorized."

Clubhouse and visitor parking

There are two gravel-paved visitor parking spots beside the fuel pumps, directly across from the clubhouse. The clubhouse has combo access (a code visiting pilots will have no trouble figuring out), a washroom, and vending machines. There's also wifi, but I couldn't find the password posted anywhere on the wall.

Expect to hear only French on the radio in the circuit.

Airport weather

While the airport doesn't have an official METAR, a member mentioned this in a problem report:

Gimli has an AWOS. It is at www.gimliairportawos.com

Garman pilot uses CXGH as a Metar for CYGM. It is the Environment Canada weather at the town of Gimli 1.7 nm from CYGM

Still listed as open

The Canada Flight Supplement up to 10 September 2020 still lists this airport as open, with a note warning that "Rwy 10/28 and 16/34 sfcs deteriorating." From various comments, it doesn't sound practical to use, but someone is still keeping it on the books.

Great spot!

Landed here for the first time today, despite having flown around Houston for 20 years. Cozy spot. Nice drop-in over the trees onto 17. Will return!

Great Facility

Well maintained grass strip. Well worth a visit.

Good runway conditions (summer 2020)

I flex into Alexandria just after 9:00 am today. It was my first visit in over 15 years. I checked NOTAMs beforehand for paradrops, and monitored the frequency from about 20 min to to confirm there wasn't any activity.

The grass runway is mowed nice and short, but the ground underneath is slightly unevenβ€”not dangerously so, but you'll do a bit of dune-buggy-style bouncing over the undulations on landing, even at minimum speed, so keep the yoke back in your lap after landing in a nosedragger.

It was firm and dry, though, and even without a headwind to help, my 160 hp PA-28 needed only a bit over half of the 2,200 ft for landing and for takeoff (after backtracking).

Friendly airport

I’ve never seen so many people hanging out at a GA field!

Picture of wolfgangx

Agree on the hard to find

I also could not easily find this airport until I was right over it

Picture of shumphries

Smoothest asphalt around!

Landed here tonight just to see what this airport was all about. Name probably comes in part from the golf course just to the north of the field. Smoothest runway ever.

Welcome to CYPD

Celtic Air took over operating CYPD three years ago. Commercial aircraft ramp fees vary from 200.00 to 400.00, commercial landing fees top out based on MTOW at about 85.00 for a Challenger 350. Private aircraft can expect up to a 25.00 landing fee. Given that the airport exists solely on these fees, we hope everyone can manage with them. Call us at 902-625-2206 if you have any questions.

Great controller

Dealt with a storm popping up over the field right before takeoff, when we finally did depart the controllers really helped navigate the cells
