(The Gatineau Airport can be found in the CFS under "O" for Ottawa/Gatineau, QC)
This airport is an "MF" (manditory frequency) so you will need a radio or make prior arrangements. Transponders are not required but their use is encouraged.
In order to facilitate ground handling with our single taxi-way operation we are asking everyone to send their arrival details via email to Michel Cote at mcote@vintageWings.ca The details we require are:
1- Aircraft type and ident
2- Cellular phone # for the event
3- Day of arrival and expected length of stay
4- Camping or not
5- EAA Member or not
To ease arrival conjestion we have developed VFR arrival routes similar to Oshkosh. To obtain a visual image of the VFR routes click here
NOTAM FRIDAY 16 SEPT-GATINEAU AIRPORT
The airspace in the Gatineau control zone will be closed from 14:00 to 20:00 EDT on Friday, September 16th to permit the Snowbirds to practice and for an evening air show for Vintage Wings and EAA Members. There will be a NOTAM in effect to close the airspace during this time and a link will be posted here once the NOTAM is published. Once the Snowbirds have landed from their practice, although the airspace in NOTAM closed, orderly arrivals of aircraft will be permitted providing the aircraft have been registered with Michel Cote as stated above. The arrival window is planned from 17:00 to 18:00 EDT. It is possible that the Snowbirds will release the airspace prior to 17:00 EDT and in that case people who wish to arrive early should contact Michel Cote who will authorize arrival.
