Places to Fly: Kawartha Lakes


There’s been plenty of positive developments at the Kawartha Lakes Airport recently, including a newly paved main runway last autumn and a brand new parallel taxiway planned for 2018. In addition to being a gateway to Ontario’s beautiful cottage country, the airport consistently offers amongst the lowest fuel prices in Ontario, always available 24/7. If that’s not enough, the airport also houses a local eatery, the full-service Airport View Restaurant, offering all-day breakfasts, daily lunch specials and their famous butter tarts. Try these renowned treats for free for you and a passenger with a minimum fuel purchase! The local flying fraternity, primarily comprised of members of COPA Flight 101, is ever-present and very active. Their annual COPA for Kids event is consistently one of the largest in the country!

Seeing a community supporting and investing in its local airport, and in turn, supporting and investing in the future of general aviation should always be celebrated by the local aviation community as another step in the right direction towards preserving this wonderful world of flight. There’s no better way to show your returned support and appreciation to aviation friendly communities such as the City of Kawartha Lakes than planning your next trip to CNF4!
