The Airdrie AirPark is recognized as an important organization within the community and region. The facility plays a key role in Alberta’s Community Airport network as a vital part of supporting the transportation infrastructure and Alberta’s burgeoning economy.
The Airdrie AirPark works closely with a number of key local, aviation and government stakeholders including:
The three major airports in the Calgary area – Calgary International (YYC), Springbank and Airdrie – continue to work together to ensure smooth air traffic operations at all airports while making the most efficient, integrated use of the combined airspace alongside the realization of each airport’s economic potential. YYC is supportive of the AirPark’s direction and vision.
NavCanada is the country’s sole provider of air navigational services (ANS). As such, the AirPark continues to work closely with the ANS provider to ensure the safe and efficient use of the airspace within a roughly 50 nautical mile radius of the ANS tower at the Calgary International Airport. The alignment of Runway 12/30, along a roughly N/W – S/E orientation, permits utilization of local airspace for IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) aircraft.
Transport Canada is the Federal Government agency whom oversees aviation safety and security throughout the country. Airdrie AirPark has fostered strong relations with the organization and continues to stay abreast of on-going regulatory developments. The AirPark continues to meet or exceed the department’s airport requirements.
The Airdrie AirPark facility provides huge economic and social benefits to the region by providing a base/ location or access for the following users:
The Airport continues to be a good corporate business and is an important, positive economic contributor to the Community. It is considered a valuable asset to the Community and is essential to the City of Airdrie’s identity and growth.
