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

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

Use the grass runways

The runway pavement surface is in bad shape, except for a small strip down the middle of 08/26. Use the grass surface beside each runway, which is well maintained (it was no problem for my nose-dragging PA-28).

Shared zone and frequency with Les Cèdres

This airport is only a few miles to the north of the busier Les Cèdres/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 Cèdres, 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.

Picture of david

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.

Use at your own risk. Grass is mowed.

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.

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.
