Where Can You Land on a Highway In Canada?

When I’m bored, I pop open the CFS to a random page and read up on a particular airport.

Today it happened to be Wiley Airport (CAJ2), a small strip in the Yukon.

What caught my eye was the “Caution” section in the CFS which reads:

Rwy forms part of Dempster hwy (mile 244)

So this aerodrome’s runway is actually the highway itself! According to the CFS entry, there is a little “apron” to park your plane and a windsock.

This is one airport where a precautionary style landing is definitely in order. “no cars? check!”

    I was under the impression that you could land anywhere on the Alaska highway.
