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!”
