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.

Misplaced all along.

The FAA had this misplaced the whole time.

This Airport no longer exists

The Motel and airport was sold a year or two ago and has been removed and replaced with a Travel Trailer sales display space. So Airport no longer exists.

"Dangerous" airport

This airport, with its 2,119 ft runway, gets attention as one of the world's (so-called) most dangerous airports, but that's a bit nonsensical. It's more a matter of what plane you're choosing to land there.

A Twin Otter or even DC-3 could handle it without breaking a sweat, and probably leave a lot of the runway unused; a 747 would shoot off the end at full speed and end up as a smoking wreck.

In between those extremes, it's a matter of how close you want to cut it to your plane's maximum performance, as with any airplane and runway.

Winter flying

Hi Iโ€™m wondering the condition of the runways during winter and if you can land and take off with straight floats ? And if so is there a contact to line up a place to tie down or even better hangar space for rent perhaps . Thanks

Sad that this is now slated to be closed soon!

Sad that this is now slated to be closed! I visited 11-19-21 so I could have it in my logbook before it's gone...

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.

Name of Airport

Maybe someday it will be the โ€œSaint George-Southwest Utah International Airportโ€ but currently it is the St George Regional Airport

Nice airport

Fuel pump card control wasn't working but friendly local helped out.

Really nice airport for a municipal airport

Stopped in to drop off a passenger. Friendly attendant and wasn't too scary to fuel up

Closed

User reports:

"Our airport in Outlook, Saskatchewan was permanently closed on December 31, 2020. Please remove from your map. Thank you"

"Closed permanently and the airstrip was disced up"

If it did exist, it wasn't here.

FAA is notoriously bad at plotting correct lat/longs of heliports. This probably did exist somewhere within a 5 mile radius of this spot. AirNav doesn't list RI14 anymore at any rate.

Nice little airport

Just dropped in to meet someone with tractor parts for me to take home for some friends.

Nice Runways for a small place

Stopped in for Fuel after picking up some parts for a tractor across the lake.

Airnav and FAA now list this as CLOSED INDEFINITELY so there we go.

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

Hurricane Ida!

Great airport. My first visit was to drop supplies for victims of Hurricane Ida. The place looked like a war zone, in part because an army search/rescue unit was staging from there. Hope to be back when they've built back!

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.

Picture of AlanM70

Nice Older Airport

3 runways 2 grass 1 cement look to be in good shape. Went down to work on an irrigation engine. Was a sign on nice big hanger โ€œfor sale or rentโ€ I would love to have it at home.

Nice Airport, Clean newer FBO

Always fun to add a new airport. Flew in for a family reunion. Was met by family but do have curtesy car.

Nice facility

Went to the annual BBQ lunch Aug. 27, 2021. Great terminal and runway. Very nice local folks. Great to have the self serve fuel as well.

Vols ร  Carriacou /Flights to Carriacou

Carriacou est une รฎle magnifique avec une piste courte et รฉtroite de 800m de long.

Je vous conseille de ne pas y atterrir trop chargรฉ (ne pas atteindre la MTOW) car au dรฉcollage vous devrez รฉviter les arbres qui entourent la piste et une colline dans l'axe de piste en faisant un virage ร  gauche dรจs que possible.

A l'atterrissage faites attention dans la baie oรน vous serez en finale, il peut y avoir des bateaux qui mouillent dans l'axe.

Ils n'ont pas d'AVGAS 100LL donc prรฉvoyez assez de fuel pour revenir ร  l'aรฉrodrome de dรฉpart.

Sinon vous avez TVSA qui a du 100LL si besoin.

Prenez soin de vous et bons vols !

ENGLISH :

Carriacou is a beautiful island with a short and narrow 800m long runway.

I advise you not to land there too loaded (do not reach the MTOW) because on take-off you will have to avoid the trees that surround the runway and a hill in the axis of the runway by making a left turn as soon as possible.

When landing, be careful in the bay where you will be on final, there may be boats anchoring in the axis.

They do not have AVGAS 100LL so take enough fuel to return to the departure aerodrome.

Otherwise you have TVSA (St Vincent) which has 100LL if necessary.

Take care of yourself and safe flights

My Home Field

Earned all my ratings here...from PVT up through CFI-IA. Great facilities, 2 flight schools on the field, maintenance is top-notch, Garmin dealer, and plenty of hangar space (not cheap, but not overly out of line for the area). AIrport has been in operation since the 1920s, and has a good working relationship with the town after many years of issues during the 1980s...could stand as an example of how to go along to get along in the most densely populated state in the US.

During COVID time

As a pilot, during COVID time, it's not harder to go to this airport. You just need to find a nice Handler (HARRIS) that will take care of everything when you arrive there (even with a C172). The West Coast of the Island can be turbulent in the afternoon. When I go to Hewanorra coming from the north of the caribbean, I generally pass on the East Coast to make that flight comfortable for passengers.

Possible reactivation

The provincial governor had promised reconstruction of this airport at least as far back as 2018 and progress is being made on reopening it despite COVID related delays.

Great gas stop

Nice airport with reasonable Alaskan gas prices

2% RATE

Do you need a loan to fire up business or to cover your bills and a corporate monetary for real estate and any sorts of business financing. They give out loan to genuine minded people that are interested at 2% rate. They are extremely efficient. They can increase your score and clean your report in somedays too as they did for me. They give solutions to all credit issues. Contact if you interested @ PERMANENTCREDITREPAIRER AT GMAIL DOT COM

Crazy indeed!

You'd have to be crazy to land here! Fun to fly by though!

Never ending sunset

I landed here at 2am on 7/30 after landing at Deadhorse around midnight. Night may not be the right word since it was basically a 4 hour long sunset/rise. Absolutely incredible

Elevation: ZERO!

Great airport with helpful service, chilled FBO, and cheap gas. But I came here for the selfie with the airport sign showing "Elevation: 0.0"!

First gravel strip

Landed here in a bonanza v35. Amazing park and service in McCarthy. Runway was fine and we had a great time exploring the glacier

Picture of wolfgangx

Friendly line service

Stopped here for gas on my way to norther AK. Staff came out to pump my gas and even gave us two homemade cookies!

Great Service

Stopped to see 90 year old aunt. Flew her around Albany.

Update

I've given this a provisional name based on the location, but I've come up with the same problem as @im -- not mapped, no data available. More research needed.

Crowded airport

I have been to the San Diego airport several times to drop my mom it is a very crowded airport but still the management here works very fast we didn't have to stand in line for a long time.

Landed in SR22T G6

Very bumpy surface, Iโ€™d say its โ€œiffyโ€ for a Cirrus with wheel pants. Incredible spot, short walk to wonderful beach, tie downs and picnic tables on site. Need to sign a waiver and agreement with the operator before landing.

FAA oddity - a CA coded airport in Nevada

Per Airnav:

Sectional chart: (AIRPORT IS 10 MILES INTO NEVADA. THE CLOSEST ASSC CITY IS BISHOP, CA - AND IS CORRECTLY CHARTED ON SAN FRANCISCO SECTIONAL.)

Since it's not actually in California, I have corrected the data to reflect that it is indeed closer to Dyer, Nevada.

Hello! How to download these georeferenced satellite images?

Picture of animebirder

Corrected.

It only took a decade ... but yeah, we're all good here now.

Picture of wolfgangx

Good gas stop

Must have been an old military base. Massive runway. ForeFlight said fair condition but I would say it was good
