1970 is more than 22 years before 2018.

Looks like this airport did exist ... 40 to 50 years ago.

Inspiration for the musical Come from Away

A former transatlantic crossroads before the jet era, Gander was one of the airports that housed stranded travelers when American airspace was closed due to the events of September 11, 2001; Gander International received 7000 passengers from thirty-eight planes. The incredible hospitality of the Newfoundlanders inspired the musical Come from Away, which ran on Broadway from 2017 to 2022, and continues to spark interest from innumerable "Come-from-Aways" in the people and culture of the island.

Runway is a bit deteriorated

Beware of lots of cracks and weeds on the runway when landing here.

They have complimentary bicycles here as well but were not usable due being in disrepair. Hopefully they will fix them because I want to go back!

Some things to keep in mind flying to Orillia Ramara airport

1. The beginning of rwy 30 slopes upwards but this isn't listed in the CFS.

2. Lots of birds grazing on the grass.

3. The ARCAL is apparently private and I couldn't activate them when I flew overhead the field one night recently, so keep this in mind if staying here till dark.

4. The taxiway just off the runway is very narrow, so be sure to listen to any traffic on the ground as two planes can't squeeze past each other on the narrow section

5. Airport restaurant is tasty and has live music as well, (a bit expensive though) if fly-and-dining is your cup of tea. A bit strange of me to mention, but the pictures in the male washroom are very funny!

re: Great airport for night fliers

Reply to @cessna1504lyfe: Also another thing to add, an AWOS is available here on 122.55.

Not sure why it's not listed in the CFS.

Great airport for night fliers

Self serve fuel + comfortable and neat 24/7 lounge has made this airport a memorable one for me. Be sure to leave money in the box in the kitchen if you take any water bottles or snacks.

re: loved the courtesy car

Reply to @cessna1504lyfe: Oh and watch out for deer when driving, they're everywhere on the island.

loved the courtesy car

Nothing makes a trip to such a peaceful and picturesque airport better than a courtesy car!

Was able to see much more than I planned on. It's a minivan, perfect for small groups flying in, just contribute 20$ for the upkeep and make sure you bring it back at the same fuel level and it's yours for the day. Just call them in advance and reserve it to be sure of having it on the day you fly there.

re: The Phoenix from the ashes

How much did they pay you for this? LOL! This airpark is anything but....

Never again......

Almost hit a herd of deer. Some basic security fencing around this field should be mandated. If that wasn't enough a farmer was plowing an adjacent field and I had to avoid a flock of seagulls (not the band lol). I've landed here before years ago, it was bad then. I will not return for the sake of my life. Nothing there or in the area for me. Plus those cross winds from the SW suck big time.

Formerly an airport

According to Wikipedia, the runways were closed in 2004, and only a helipad remains.

Repurposed!

Hastings Field is no longer an active airstrip ... for fixed wing craft. There's a pretty shiny looking heliport there now though!

Former DEW Line station

This was a Distant Early Warning (DEW) Line station until 1963. The runway outline is still visible.

Ice runway

This airport looks like it's a seaplane base, but it's actually a seasonal ice runway.

Great new service on the southernmost point in Canada!
