Airport

The City's airport is an important asset that offers significant economic and community benefits. It brings visitors to our community, creates jobs and supports local business by making their customers and suppliers more accessible. The airport is the only facility between Minden and Peterborough available for Ornge medical evacuations and is used frequently for life-saving missions.

Every year the airport hosts a free event offering introductory flights and an orientation to aviation for hundreds of local children. Local pilots organize the event and flying club members use their own aircraft at their own expense.

The airport is available to local schools and service clubs. Tours can include an orientation to aviation and aeronautics conducted by airport or flight school staff.

The airport is easily accessible, located one mile west of Lindsay on Highway 35, providing convenient and direct access to destinations throughout Ontario and beyond. It is a Transport Canada registered airport offering 24-hour access by means of an aircraft radio operated lighting system, a state of the art self-service card lock fuel system that dispenses L00LL and JetA fuel, and a Unicom service that operates during staffed hours.

The airport is a CBSA designated port of entry for Canpass holders. In addition to the main asphalt and secondary grass runway, the airport has two City-owned hangar complexes that house ten aircraft each and adequate parking area for both tenants and visiting aircraft. The main airport building accommodates the full service Airportview Restaurant, the WM Aeroflight flight training and maintenance facility, a pilot lounge and the airport manager's office. A secondary building accommodates the Eric B Robinson aircraft maintenance operation.

The airport is anticipating future expansion based on current discussions with existing and potential users and tenants, who will bring further economic benefit and community support to the City of Kawartha Lakes.
