With its paved 1800x60ft runway, 24/7 self-serve fuel, floatplane facilities and central location, the Airpark is a favoured destination for aviators from near and far.
The Airpark is home to a commercial flight school operation (a satellite of Sealand Flight which also offers charters and sightseeing flights), an Ultralight Flight School and an aircraft maintenance/modifications company. In addition, there are local restaurants, malls, shops and hotels/motels all within walking distance. 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.
