Well hello fellow Ham Radio operator!!

I am just learning to fly and checking out this website to learn all the airports and airfields in the south of Alberta.

Last time I was in to Drumheller was to meet aviation friends, but we drove in. Loved the airport and the staff hanging around , had a lovely lunch...rats can't remember the place in town, then went through The Royal Tyrell Museum....very interesting indeed!! Keep the Shiny Side Up!!! Caroline

BCATP

What a great old airport!!! She was built in the 1940's as a British Commonwealth Air Training Plan airport for the boys to learn how to fly those big bombers!! It is sad to see most of those old gals in Alberta have disappeared........they must have been something to see all across Canada!!! Too bad that most of them have not been maintained!! CEN4 - High River has been plowed under, but Google earth still shows her triangle!!! Want to do some history search?? Go slowly over each Province and look for that tell tale triangle!!! Safe flying out there!!!! Caroline

AGREE with others - BETTER places to go.....

Small facility, poor airstrip, local area boring, no ground transportation. NOTL (CYSN) has much more to offer by a wide margin.

Nice facility

Went to the annual BBQ lunch Aug. 27, 2021. Great terminal and runway. Very nice local folks. Great to have the self serve fuel as well.

Terminal interior is being renovated. Looks like a few year job. Runway is very good.

Needs TLC

The terminal building really needs some cleaning and TLC. Runway is in good shape.

My Experience

Very Nice Airport, Just The Taxis And Luggage Are Areas They NEED To Improve On

Warning: high landing fee, GA not welcome

City council has forced the airport to institute a $35 landing fee (+HST, presumably). There are no exceptions, not even for resident pilots or pilots purchasing fuel. The fee is more than double that of CYTZ, which is downtown in Canada's biggest city.

I suggest taking your travel business to nearby Wiarton CYVV, instead -- it still welcomes GA.

First solo flight 1983

When I learned to fly in Canada 1983

I completed my first solo 10. of July 1983 on Midland (Huronia) Airport with an Cessna 150 C-GUKF and finally got the PPL Licence on July 29th 1983.

I never forget this awesome time flying in Ontario. Wonderful!

Looking for Belleville Flying Club jacket

My dad still has his Belleville Flying Club jacket from the 90's but it is falling apart. Anyone have one in their collection they would be willing to part with?

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.

Picture of bcrosby

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

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).

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 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).

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.

Update 5/8/2020 airfield appears to be in despair. There is no windsock at the airfield just a bare pole the airport has fences surrounded it with no-trespassing signs on them. All the structures located at the airfield or in close-proximity to it are in complete and utter despair
