Places To Fly: Maniwaki


Maniwaki is inviting pilots to its annual fly-in this weekend and to sample the generous hospitality of the aviation community there. Here’s what organizers had to say:

A few days left before the Maniwaki Fly-in on Sunday, June 11, starting at 11:00am. Dinner will be served.

Maniwaki offers a nice runway, re-paved in 2011, 4921′ by 150′ and lots of parking space for FREE. You may arrive earlier and camp under the wing. We have a pilot’s lounge which includes a washroom, shower, mini-frig and micro-wave. We can even accomodate pilots with ground transportation.

A bilingual operator will be providing airport advisory on 122.8.

If you have “flying in a jet” on your bucket’s list, then look no further and hop in the jet L-29 Delfin. On Sunday, June 11, during the Fly-in event, you may purchase a ride for $999.00 (no taxes). A once in a life time experience! (Acer Cold War Museum)

You will also be able to admire on the ground the PT-26 Cornell from The Vintage Wings and the popular Beaver The Bull (both based at Gatineau).

On top of all that, we have lots of prizes for pilots to win including a headset and life jackets!

For any questions, contact Nathalie Fortin by phone at 613-277-2166, or the airport manager, Michel Lachapelle, at 819-449-6103.

Will you be with us? Hope to see all of you there!
