BCATP relief field

From @FlyingTom in a problem report:

This triangular field was RCAF Detachment Granum (for the nearby town) and was the #1 relief field for No. 7 Service Flying Training School at Fort Macleod.

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

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.

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

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.

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 at your own risk. Grass is mowed.

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.

Picture of Fitchett

Long gone

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

Picture of Fitchett

Long gone

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

Picture of Fitchett

Totally unlandable

Strip is long gone in the trees

Picture of Fitchett

Well maintained as of 2019

Kept mowed by local flying club.

Picture of Fitchett

Much worse than it looks by satellite

Severely overgrown; anywhere that isn't pavement is growing tall trees.

Well maintained

Kept up by the Red Deer Flying Club.
