Aerodromes

An aerodrome is an area of land used or designated in part for the arrival, departure, movement or servicing of aircraft. Yukon is one of the largest aerodrome operators in Canada. Our aviation system provides a safety net for aircraft when weather conditions deteriorate.

Aerodromes support Yukon communities:

  • With access to emergency health care through support of Air MEDEVAC operations
  • By facilitating RCMP, justice and aerial firefighting activities (as a hub to support emergency, disaster and relief efforts).
  • By providing a base for aircraft operations in remote areas for industry

Yukon aerodrome management

  • Land aerodromes - Yukon government
  • Schwatka Lake - City of Whitehorse
  • Ski strips - not provided or maintained in Yukon.

Off-runway landing and taking off

If conducting landings and take-offs when not on the prepared surface at uncontrolled aerodromes with a Community Aerodrome Radio Station, advise the radio station operator your intentions.

Fixed-wing aircraft operators who choose to land off runway at Yukon Government operated aerodromes do so at their own risk.

Off runway take-off and landing may be reported to Transport Canada for investigation and possible enforcement action.
