Places to Fly – East: Stanley, Nova Scotia


Pilots and aviation aficionados alike will want to fly or drive to Stanley Sport Aviation’s 48th Annual Labour Day Weekend Fly-In.

Taking place this weekend, August 30 through to September 1, festivities begin with a free corn-boil on Friday night, sponsored by Aerotec Engines Limited. Live music will be playing. Saturday evening will see an auction as the main draw.

On-field camping is available, a food truck will be present and hay-rides are planned. A fire pit will keep campers and friends warm in the evening. There will also be static displays and forums, as well as plane-judging.

Pilots will find three turf runways at Stanley airport (CCW4): 02/20 (1900 x 90 feet); 09/27 (2600 x 125 feet) and 15/33 (1800 x 100 feet). 100LL will be available.
