Isn't this strip closed now?
Just looking since Waterville might be numbered. Who owns this Airpark? How busy is it?
Visited the airport in August 2012. Beautiful asphalt runway, nicely maintained. No aircraft visible anywhere. Small terminal building, locked, looked largely unused. Three "hangars" of which only one looked servicable. Middle hangar falling down and full of non-aviation junk, third hangar closed with what looked like municipal ditch mower parked in front. No fuel, no telephone, and some distance from accommodation. This airport is close to the famous and scenic Cabot Trail, Baddeck, and should be crown jewel. Just add gas, a beater courtesy vehicle, an open terminal/pilot lounge and it should be busy all spring and summer. One wonders who built this airport, for what, and why it is well maintained but seemingly unused. Too bad really, could be a great destination.
Overflew this airport last summer, was planning a possible touch and go depending how the field looked, but when we approached... wow... runway 27 certainly slopes DOWN.
Private aircraft landing in Port Hawkesbury will be charged $500.00 fee from the airport authority. If you have any questions you can email me at email@example.com. Things are not always what they seem and these people who run this airport don't care.
