Shared zone and frequency with Les Cรจdres

This airport is only a few miles to the north of the busier Les Cรจdres/Cedars (CSS3), and shares a common zone and ATF frequency of 123.5 MHz (also the frequency for Ottawa/Rockcliffe CYRO, so it gets busy).

Like Les Cรจdres, it's under Montreal Terminal's class C shelf, so if you're VFR, you need to stay below 2,000 ft MSL unless you're talking to them. It's a flat area with lots of fields and no high towers, so low flight isn't a problem.

The runway's not as bad as it looks

The runway looks like a patchwork quilt of different shades of asphalt when you're on approach, but the surface is actually fine.

If you're VFR, note that you need to stay below 2,000 ft MSL unless you talk to Montreal Terminal (and they're often too busy to talk much, though they try to accomodate). The land is flat, there are no high towers in the area, and there are fields for emergency landing in every direction, so it's not really a problem flying around at 1,500 ft until you're out from under the class C shelf.

Mountain (sort-of)

The mountain (by eastern standards) is just behind the field, and looms large when you're crossing overhead from the south to join the downwind for 08. It's good to warn any passengers that you'll appear to be flying straight towards the trees.

Nice brunch

I flew myself to CYRQ on Father's Day. It's still a nice, friendly airport. The staff don't mind you parking (for free) even if you're not buying fuel. The restaurant had a great Sunday brunch and a big crowd.

I did manage to generate my first CADORS report on my way home, when I had a full avionics-stack failure in IMC and had to follow lost-comms procedures into Ottawa Terminal airspace:

Thank you YUL

The process for clearing customs and proceeding to a domestic flight was fantastic. Our US flight was delayed 45 min making the connection really tight and staff were at the customs area waiting to assist us. It was straight forward and quick - far better than connecting through YYZ.

Info from 1977

According to a 1977 CFS, runway 17/35 was gravel, 3500ร—75 ft, and had right hand circuits for rwy 35. The airport sold 100 octane fuel. NORDO aircraft had to stay south of the railroad tracks to the north of the field landing 17 or departing 35. The airport operator was Hull Air Services Ltd in Masson.

Too expensive for me

Expensive fuel and many fees. Please avoid unless you own a jet and must go to old Quebec City. If you want to visit around you are better going to Trois-Riviere and rent a car.

Picture of

Nice tower folks

Rare small controlled airport around. Bilingual services. Nice down town area.

Picture of

Nice place

Nice people around. Same town feeling. Downtown Joliette is a real small city with all restaurants, hotels, cabs... Nice little terminal with a dynamic flight school. Cheap fuel available when the flight school is open. No restaurant on site, always some retired folks around to talk airplane with and help you. English spoken by most local French-Canadian pilots. Many ex-airline and ex-Military pilots here.

Picture of

Worn down, no one around, nothing around.

Better go somewhere else like CSU3, CSC3.

Picture of

Cheap fuel

The cheapest 100LL in the area. Busy on weekends. Watch out for parachute jumpers. Most local pilot speak/understand English. Just be clear and ask questions. No food around. Better go to Trois-Riviere or Bromont for good airport based restaurants.

Picture of

Good spot

English spoken, good place for 100LL and Jetfuel. Always someone around for fuel when the weather is ok to good. English is understood/spoken by all local pilot. Just be clear and ask questions if not sure. Not a good idea to be Nordo. Say your intention. Runway 20 is a right circuit. Just approach by the city side. Plenty of trikes and flight schools here for touch and goes.

Valpiro FBO at Val D'Or airport

Val D'Or was great experience!, Valpiro FBO staff were helpful, friendly and efficient, and we had ground power as soon as we had shut down. We had emailed them overnight and, following their response we phoned and made contact. We arrived and parked on the ramp nearest to their facility and were airborne again 58 minutes later after the refuel, coffee and loo stop! Definitely a top-tip in Northern Canada.

Search for a Fleet Canuck aircraft for sale

I'm hoping there may be a Fleet Canuck available at this airport for sale, any help would be appreciated. Is there an airport manager on site?

Picture of

General Aviation not welcome there

The National Defence ask 14$ landing fees and Promotion Saguenay ask another 16$. An additionnal 25$ fees per passenger was requested and 35$ for daytime parking. Considering that I had 3 passengers on that day, the journey costed me 140$, which is very expensive in comparison to similar airport size.

Flying a drone


I want to fly a drone in my farm in Saint Cesaire which is close (4kms approx.) to a small airdrome and far away from the main airports.

I just want to make sure I'm not braking any law by doing that on my private land.

Thanks for your advice.

Great Airport

Easy to use and easy access to downtown Montreal

Pascan was a very reasonably priced FBO

Helpful and cooperative !!

Expensive AOE

Montreal area airports are a real rip off for the Ramp fees for a brief stop to satisfy Canadian customs

Learning to Fly at CSE4

I just started my PPL at CSE4 and the staff is super friendly and welcoming! The food is great and the service is super professional! I was shocked to hear english when I came through the doors! Nothing but positive comments to say about this friendly airport! Beautiful scenery around the airfield and tons of pilots to talk too!

Growing friendly airport

I have been stationned here since 1994. It is nice to witness a municipal airport in Quebec that is open to bilingualism, not threatened by land-grabing developpers and supported by its town. To wit the explosion of red-roofed hangars over the last 10 years... There has been a change in the management of the airport, restaurant and flying school but it has led to more growth and little change in the service, so all good news. On weekend during the swing seasons, be prepared to encounter some glider activities but the traffic is wide enough and there are no real overflight restrictions that would cause a safety hazard. As for English not being used, I fly in both languages and I have never noticed...

Quebec Jean Lesage landing/parking fees

Great Airport - Very active

Visited twice and saw lots of activity happening. Airport manager is very friendly and helpful. Its very scenic to go over the big river just to the west of the airport on climb out or on approach.

Very Nice fascility

Great airport to have a stop over or a fuel stop. Nice retaurant on site and gas stations are just a walking distance. Local community uses French only on radio....Be prepared or be motivated to go nordo. :)

Our flight to Grosse le

Our two father-and-son pilots from Montmagny Airport were excellent - just felt like driving in a car. I just knew they could do this trip blindfolded! Not only did we get 'the tour' but they also located several flocks of Snow Geese for me. Great take-off and soft landing. Thanks to both of you.

Reply to @RaymondR: Doesn't appear in the Water Aerodrome Supplement either.

This aerodrome is not currently listed in the CFS

Please correct the mistake

It is located in Quebec, not Nova Scotia

There's a new FBO at the end of Juliet threshold 24R called H-18 i think. They only serve Jet-A, but they offer the best service on the field. Pascan is crowded with their own airplanes and they rarely have hangar space available. h18 saved me this winter, they gave me an amazing price, even though I was in a 172 and couldn't buy fuel from them. Definitely a place to check out. And they are only 15 minutes driving from downtown!

Deserves to drop behnd Calgary

Arrived 2:00 with a 6:45 AM connecting flight. Went to my departure gate to sleep until boarding, and got rousted out by a security guard. Had to leave the secure area and go back through security. Apparently they hate sleep. I hope they feel like crap that a city 1/3 the size (Calgary) has displaced them as 3rd busiest airport in Canada.
