High River To Get RNAV


High River Airport Authority (HRAA) President, Steff Stephansson, recently announced that St Albert-based JetPro has been retained to design and implement RNAV (GPS) approaches at the southern Alberta airport.

“With the addition of this new instrument approach capability, High River will continue to gain momentum as an alternative to an increasingly congested Spring Bank airport,” Stephansson told Canadian Aviator. “Approaches on both ends of our 4150 foot runway will benefit our airport’s private and commercial operators alike.”

High River has recently seen a spurt in private hangar construction, reflecting the growing popularity of the field. CEN4 is located 49 km south of Calgary. In addition to self-serve fuel (including Jet A) and on-field maintenance services, High River has recently expanded long-term parking through a newly-paved tie-down area.
