The Township has a bounty of beautiful lakes, countryside and parks and the best way to enjoy this beauty, or just to get here, is by air. To this end Rideau Lakes Township has its own aerodrome with a 3,000 foot runway on the west end of Upper Rideau Lake.
This aerodrome is owned by the Township, managed by the Rideau Lakes Flying club and was registered by Transport Canada in 2001 and listed in the Canadian Flight Supplement as CRL2.
Road entrance to Aerodrome is approximately 850m West on Country Road 10 from County Road 42.
A privy exists near the entrance. Tie-downs are available in the north west corner for visiting aircraft and camping under the wing is allowed.
Rideau Lakes Flying Club Events
Everyone is welcome – these events are free and open to the public.
The Rideau Lakes Flying Club hosts two events each year. These events attract well over 40 aircraft, with the odd helicopter making an appearance as well! Mark your calendar for the last Saturday in May for our annual Breakfast Fly In.
The other event is held in February and folks will enjoy watching planes and helicopters land on a snow-covered runway. Again, this event is open to the public.
The Rideau Lakes Flying Club has its own club house with all conveniences. The community is invited to attend and participate in these events and take a walking tour of the airfield. Without their support, continued success would not be possible.
