Brantford Municipal Airport:
Reply to @dazuppa: Correction - SE ramp mentioned above, sorry! :-)
Brantford is very easy to find - an obvious triangular shape next to the only big town in the area. Wide, long, well-maintained runways and not so well maintained taxiways, huge ramps. A couple of semi-dismantled C-117 with square tails and oversized elevators at the end of the SW ramp (aviation buffs, check them out - those birds are rare now!) Reasonably busy, but with well-organized traffic and helpful unicom. A nice place to visit.

do you have a schematic for the airport that you could email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org? Thanks in advance.
It is a commercial hanger that is going in on the South-East side of the airport, beside Gilbert's
Just announced - a new row of hangars are getting built.
Conk: the $100 hamburger is an old aviation joke: $5 for the hamburger, and $95 for the gas to fly to the airport and back. Nowadays, it's more like a $300 hamburger.
A $100 hamburger or breakfast???? Geeze-louise! This I gotta see! Will be coming up from Asheville, NC, USA in late August for the air show. I'll be sure and bring extra cash!
The City of Brantford is investing 1.9 Million dollars into overhauling the Brantford Airport.
The money is being spent on replacing storm sewers and repaving 2 of the 3 runways (35/17 & 05/23)
Please check your NOTAMS before coming in - a few of the taxiways are closed with the runways for the construction.
The construction should be completed by early August, just in time for the airshow on August 27th.

A good place for a $100 hamburger or breakfast.
Open 7days a week 8am - 2pm.
This airport is a main reason that I am a flier today. I went up on an EAA Young Eagles flight at the age of 16. There is a great EAA chapter on the field that is stuck in time. It is like walking into the 1940's going in there. Great people and great projects. A tribute to the romance of aviation. Definately worth a stop!
Just did a touch and go on a x-country from Buttonville. After reading these comments I wish I stayed and checked out the terminal. Maybe next time.
Sunday afternoon, was pretty busy. 3 or 4 people doing their thing in the circuit.
Beautiful airport keep it alive! Received my Multi here.
Brantford makes a big deal out of being the one-time home of Alexander Graham Bell -- in addition to his work on the phone, Bell was one of Canada's earliest and most important aviation pioneers and advocates, so it would be especially sad if Brantford's airport closed. How about renaming it to Brantford/Alexander Graham Bell Airport?
There is a petition circulating to put down efforts by the city to close the airport. I hope the city develops some long-range thinking about their short-sighted problems.
My plane is hangared here :) !
