The Courtenay Airpark is a small public aerodrome located on the banks of the Courtenay River, within easy walking distance of the downtown core of the City of Courtenay, in the beautiful Comox Valley, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.
With its hard-surface 1800x60ft runway, on-field amenities including 24/7 self-serve fuel, adjacent floatplane facilities and central location, the Airpark is a favoured destination for aviators from near and far. In addition to the many services offered by local restaurants, malls, shops and hotels/motels, the Airpark itself includes an ultralight flight school, and an aircraft maintenance and modifications company. The Park Cafe, a small and friendly cafe next to the main gate, draws many fly-in visitors for the great home-made food.
The Courtenay Airpark is one of the few airfields still in existence where the public is able to get a close-up view of light aircraft, both wheeled and on floats, during landings and take-offs. It is truly an 'air-park' as it is ringed by the pathways of the Courtenay River Walkway and the associated nature parkland.
The Airpark is owned by the City of Courtenay but is entirely managed and operated by a volunteer organization (The Courtenay Airpark Association). It serves not only Courtenay but all surrounding communities and localities in the Comox Valley.
Please take a tour of our website here and check out the information intended for visiting pilots and their passengers. Questions, comments or suggestions related to the Airpark may be forwarded via email (see 'Contact' page).
Whether for pleasure or business, should your flight destination include Vancouver Island, we would be happy to welcome you to our airpark 'jewel'!
