Aerial view

The airpark is far further along than you can tell from the Google Maps satellite view. Here's a recent aerial photo:

Reply to @AndreVenture:

Yesterday, at 9h45 the Supreme Court of Canada said that Aviation is under Federal juridiction ONLY!!!! The provincial and municipal governments have nothing to say about where and how to built an airport!!!

Now, I am a member of 'Our airports' and now I know who is ''the anonymous flyer''. David Megginson, the brave, who started this very interesting website explained me that anybody who writes a comment will be call '' anonymous fyer'' if he/she is not a member of this site!

I thought this could help others to understand the comments.

re: project not approved

Reply to @david: Welcome! I will keep you posted.

The seaplane base is in the WAS (Water Aerodrome Supplement). The 2 runways will be finish, on 0-3/8 compacted stone dust, in 2 weeks. TC came a month ago for inspection and as soon as I put the windsock and markers they will put Pontiac Airpark in the CFS.

I sold 3 lots. A 4th one is coming soon. His architect plan is done!

I was supposed to built the clubhouse this year but I was too late. I did not want to built during the winter months. Next year!

I should check the web more often about the Pontiac Airpark. I will now!

Fly high!

Andre.

P.S. Note that there is a NOTAM in effect: No touch and go at the seaplane base.

Thanks for clearing that up, AndrΓ©. Let us know when your runway is operational.

re: project not approved

To the anonymous flyer,

I am very VERY shocked about this VERY WRONG affirmation!!!

I am the developper of this project and I NEVER DID a CLEAR CUT ON MY LAND! I cut the minimum trees for the runways and the taxiways. I love the bush, I was raise in the bush and I want to live in the bush.

In 2005, my neighbour cut a lot of trees on his land and an environmentalist came in my office to tell me, and the medias, that I did a clear cut! Of course, this was wrong.

This project DOES NOT NEED APPROVAL from the provincial government.

Aviation (runways, taxiways and seaplane base) is of Federal juridiction. The seaplane base is approved (check the WAS) and the runways will be approved shortly.

The provincial rules states that you can not built at less then 10 (or 15 depending) meters from the water and that you cannot disturb a wet land. Each residential lot has to follow the municipal, provincial and federal rules. As long as you follow the rules nobody will disturb your peace. The municipality will approve your implantation plan for your building permit. The project, and each lot, DOES NOT NEED the provincial approval.

The municipality is pushing me to do this project. This will be great for the Pontiac.

AndrΓ© Durocher.

Owner, developper.

Fall 2009 Update

I took a flight over there yesterday and it looks like some progress has been made since the last google earth pass. Will need to keep an eye on this one as an interesting place to be.

re: Ottawa's mystery airport

I can't find any info about this strip - is it still private or PPR? I have done low approaches numerous times, it seems there are some terrain gradient challenges at the East end of the strip. I'd be willing to take the Husky in for a visit and offer an unbiased opinion on the runway conditions.

2000 feet of the East-West runway is gravelled and the last 1400 feet is under construction. The South part of the North-South runway is under construction. Check PontiacAirpark.com

re: Ottawa's mystery airport

Hi everyone,

I was curious to see if my website was on the web yet so I did a research on Pontiac Airpark and found your site. I guess I was more surprise to find your post than David earing about an airport East of Arnprior. You are right there is and airport (airpark) 10 miles north-east of Arnprior. The east-west runway will be 3400 feet long with asphalt and lights. 59 residential lots are for sale and it is on the Ottawa river. Floats, wheels and skis are welcome. Check my website in a few days. AndrΓ©. 819-568-2359.

Ottawa's mystery airport

This has been a mystery airport for me for a while. I heard it mentioned on the radio a few months ago (a pilot said he was landing at "Pontiac Airpark" east of Arnprior). A search on the web turned up almost nothing, aside from a mention in some town council minutes for Pontiac, Quebec:

http://www.munpontiac.com/documents%20pdf/rapp-mtgs/angl-reg/MN070911.pdf

The only information in that document is the fact is that the airport is by Chemin River (River Road). Nothing shows up in the Google Maps satellite view, but I flew along River Road on Wednesday 6 August 2008 at 1,000 ft above ground level and found what looked like a large dirt runway (with no planes) at this location -- it was the only possible candidate. Maybe the airpark is still under construction.
