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.

Don't

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.

DO NOT LAND HERE

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

Picture of

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.

Not allowing landings

Just spoke with owner and at present they are not permitting planes to land.

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.

Road crosses runway

Do a low pass to alert car traffic crossing runway on hill at east end

Beacon YWA-------

Was listening on a sony old table radio and had modified it with preselective tuning antenna input from a 80 meter inverted Vee at 70feet. I could hear either a modulated tone or a hetrodyne tone and copied the YWA. I looked it up on yahoo and found that it is coming from Petawawa in Canada. Cool. I then hooked up my DX-400 Shortwave digital tuning reciever and went to 515khz. and recieve the message of YWA again. It was a little weak but very easy to copy. I am located in Gladstone, Michigan in the U.P. My call letters are WB8FUW.

Amazing

Took the family to visit Upper Canada village . We landed in Morrisburg . Very nice airport , excellent paved runway . The grass to the sides was kept very trim and neat and a cable was conveniently laid across the parking area making tie down very easy . A short walk ,even with a 3 year old and 6 year old brought us to the Upper Canada Village site .Picnic areas , beach , as well as a golf course are all within a very short walk as well. A shame more pilots don't know about this wonderful airport .

Nice facility

I recently landed at Dwight with my C340.

I was very surprised at the high terrain and trees at the approach end of 27 and 02.

The grass is not smooth but tufts of grass separated by dirt. Still very safe but noisy .

Be careful at the approach END of 27 as it is sandy and soft. I got stuck but very helpful workers towed me out.

Beautiful countryside and very cooperative enterprise Car Rental in Huntsville.

Latest for Greenbank ... from a flying in visitor

I flew into Greenbank airport on Sunday 24 September 2017. The main runway (Turf) was cut and serviceable. Marked by orange cones ... As far as (06/24) is concerned - It is gone.

There were a few aircraft parked on the field.

There is NO fuel. I attempted to get some - four times. The pump worked but the tanks were dry.

Fortunately I took my 2 gallon Jerry-can from my baggage compartment and walked to the nearby Shell Gas station and bought some MoGas. 3 trips.

Is this airport open ?

Seems the dirt dumping was stopped in April 2017.

Are the planes there in the hangers ?

With so much dirt being pushed around a lot would get into the hangers and on the planes.
