The City of Kawartha Lakes Municipal Airport is located one half mile west of Lindsay off Highway 35 North. The airport is a Transport Canada registered airport with 24 hour radio operated lighting (Arcal) system and a Unicom (122.8) service during business hours. Our facility provides quick and easy access to key points throughout Ontario and beyond. The airport is available for day/night V.F.R. and I.F.R. operations and is a Port of Entry (Can pass) for Canada Customs.
The primary runway 13-31 is asphalt with dimensions 1,067 metres (3,500ft.) by 23 metres (75ft.). The secondary runway 03-21 is a grass 805 metres (2641ft.) by 23 metres (75ft.) and has an operational displacement of 109.7 metres (360ft.) at the Runway 03 end. The airport is operated on a 24/7 time schedule. Runway lighting is automatic on the ARCAL system. The Fuel system is state of the art self-service card-lock dispensing unit that provides both LL100 and JETA-1 fuel.
The Kawartha Lakes Municipal Airport has an aircraft maintenance facility “Eric B Robinson Ltd.”, initial and advanced flight training school “Fly Canadian” as well as a full service restaurant “Airportview Restaurant” and is home to many privately owned general aviation aircraft.
The Fall Leaf colour changing is a big event for site-seeing tours as well as the many lakes and provincial park forests to see from the air. The Trent Canal aerial view is a glimpse of the spectacular construction feat that was built in the late 1800’s. The flight over the Kirkfield Lift Locks, which is part of the area’s history, is a big event.
The recent upgrades to the airside facilities have included the expansion of the apron parking areas and the lengthening of the taxiways. These improvements are setting the stage for new hangers and taxiways to increase the level of service to the general aviation market. The aircraft parking areas have been increased from 23 to 45 permanent tie-down spots. The visitor parking areas can now accommodate 10-15 aircraft flying-in to take advantage of our fuel system and our restaurant.
The airport is centrally located in a very strategic location for ORANGE Medevac helicopters and their fixed wing aircraft for emergency medical transfers. The City of Kawartha Lakes EMS uses the airport to ‘stage’ their ambulances for emergency readiness.
