Seen on an old VNC (unknown date, mounted on wall at Rockcliffe Flying Club). Recent satellite image shows a mowed grass runway and parked aircraft.

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.

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?

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).

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).

The lost villages

To the east of here, along the St Lawrence River, you can see the old Highway 2, several sideroads, and even some village street grids and lots under the water. They were submerged with the opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway in 1959, and flying over them is still an interesting (and creepy) experience.

Procedures: summer glider ops for air cadets

[copied from Facebook]

The Air Cadets Gliding Operations have commenced for the Fall season at Smiths Falls flying Club on weekends.

When Air Cadet Glider Ops are in progress there is no inactive side of the circuit. Gliders and Tow Planes do right hand circuits and use both the main and grass Runway. The Glider β€œzone” extends up to 3,000 ft on the β€œinactive” side.

Joining the circuit from inactive side should be avoided, coordinate with Glider Ops on 122.7 if unsure. Joining the circuit straight into downwind is highly recommended.

Just don't. They're throwing everyone out. It will probably close.

Noise abuse

The constant flying over Sutton must stop, very loud aircraft and it all day long.

I am contacting T/C and lodging a complaint!

Stop flying over the homes in Sutton

There is one plane that continually flies over the homes in Sutton. Please stop, you are a complete nuisance.

UP train to downtown is great

When I was stranded here for 30 hours after a missed connection (see my previous comment), I was about to look for an airport hotel, when I remembered that it's just as fast and easy to get downtown now that the UP Train is running. I remember when downtown was an hour++ and a $75 taxi ride; now its a few bucks and a 25-minute ride on a train that runs every 15 minutes. You'd be insane to stay at the crappy airport hotels these days; you'd probably spend more time waiting for their shuttle than just riding the UP Train to civilisation.

Don't transfer here

This is a great airport for people living in/near the GTA, but it's an awful one for connections, because when it shuts down for a thunderstorm (etc), it takes hours to recover. I was connecting from Ottawa to Copenhagen, sat for a 3-hour ground hold in Ottawa, missed my connection in Toronto, stood in line for 2 hours waiting for the chronically-understaffed (and ironically-named) Air Canada courtesy counter, and had to fight hard to avoid being moved to a flight 48 hours later. When things go wrong at YYZ, they go wrong badly, and it takes the airport a long time to recover.

No drinking water, but very nice

I visited again earlier this month, after nearly 10 years. There's a drinking water spout that's shut down, and a picnic table courtesy of the Cornwall Flying Club. It's still one of my favourite little airports to visit (so quiet). I put some photos here: https://www.instagram.com/p/B0MUsUKAbWL/

The Phoenix from the ashes

I'm glad to see that CNZ8 Grimsby has a new lease on life!

Since the new owners have taken over, there are many improvements and more to come!

The airport is clean and functional. The new airport manager, Gary, is delightful and accommodating.New tenants are rushing in with the knowledge that this is going to be the new area airport, after Stoney Creek CPF6 deciding to go the Storage Facility direction.

Owner is not a nice person and is very protective of property

flew in today

I really enjoyed flying into Grimsby Air Park today. I called up on the telephone prior to arriving no answer, left no voice mail however a kind gentlemen called me back. Told him my intentions and he was more than accommodating. Nobody was around but the place was neat and orderly. I was able to use the washroom and I felt the runway was in good shape considering I'm sure it gets very little funding if any. As Ontario Municipalities who have airports squeeze the life out of GA, it's a treat to land at an airport like Grimsby. Bravo.

Wally Hare’s Vision

This fabulous little airport is the vision of one man: Wally Hare. He obtained his ppl in the 1950’s and constructed the original two airstrips in 1958. It was his vision to redirect the strip to its current location. Wally’s family moved there in 1934 and he lived there almost until he died in 2013.
