Airport Facilities


The runway is 5,000 feet long by 150 feet wide, and is oriented directly east / west. Lighting is radio controlled (ARCAL) to accommodate night operations, and is activated by the pilot.


There is ample aircraft parking area adjacent to the terminal building with some tie down areas available for overnight aircraft. The parking area is lit and fully fenced.


Airmac Flight Centre operates a Repair and Maintenance facility on site catering to our local pilots. As well, Airmac maintains two hangars for aircraft storage when space permits.


Port Hawkesbury Airport is “Home” to several privately owned and one commercially operated aircraft. We also host a large number of Biz-Jets, recreational flyers, medical and government flights during the year. Charter services are also available here using operators from Halifax or any other¬†airport on the Atlantic Seaboard.
