Can you tell me the length of the runway?
For several years, I have had OHAP as a base, flying a Cessna 150, C-FLUG. presently for sale. What's special about this private airport? The parking terrain and runway are very solid and well maintained. Some services available; best to phone first one of three numbers listed in Canada Flight Supplement 2011. LEON WOYCHUK is the local AME with a hangar at the SouthEast of the field. He has serviced my plane for several years. I can vouch for his quality workmanship. You are welcome for a fly-in visit.
Landed at CYWG this afternoon and parked my Cherokee at the Avitat. The first time I looked out the window, they were fueling my plane; the second time I looked, they were washing my windshield, as if it were a 1950s gas station!
Meanwhile, the woman at the desk found me a hotel room (nice hotel, very inexpensive), a taxi, and a list of vegetarian restaurants, and didn't even require my credit card in advance (as most FBOs do).
Prices and fees, based on a phone call 2011-08-24 (fees apply to a single-engine piston such as a Piper Cherokee or Cessna 172):
Phone: (204) 831-7714 / Unicom 123.0 MHz
100LL avgas: $2.06/litre INCLUDING sales tax ($7.81/US gallon). Central Aviation will also match any lower price on the field.
Handling fee: $33 (waived with fuel purchase).
Parking fee: $27/night (first night free with 150 litre fuel purchase or fill-up if less)
The reception desk can book a hotel and arrange ground transportation. A taxi to downtown Winnipeg is approximate $15-18.
