BST Vacations

What a year it's been for BST vacation flights departing from YPQ! In 2023, we successfully scheduled four exhilarating trips. The spring season saw us jetting off to the bustling streets of New York City and the vibrant vibes of Austin, Texas. Come June, 180 lucky passengers experienced the breathtaking beauty of Canada's east coast with a weekend getaway to St. John’s, Newfoundland. And guess what? We still have one more adventure up our sleeve for this year – a trip to the ever-enthralling Nashville, Tennessee! If you've got a case of wanderlust, stay tuned for announcements on their 2024 departures from YPQ.
COPA 99s 23rd Annual Gold Cup Rally

The COPA 99’s chose YPQ as their base for their 23rd annual Gold Cup Rally. We had the pleasure of hosting six aircraft from various locations, all parked neatly on our GA parking apron. The event commenced with a delightful group dinner at the airport, followed by a day of flying to other participating airports for their rally.
Nascar Fly-in

The adrenaline-pumping Chevrolet Grand Prix took over the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park from July 7-9. Our airport was abuzz with diverse aircraft, ferrying drivers and crews from all corners. A hearty welcome to all in Peterborough!
What's Coming up at YPQ?

Did you know that Transport Canada mandates an annual emergency exercise for airports? If you're considering a visit to the Airport on September 19th, brace yourself for some added excitement! We'll be testing our Emergency Response Plan alongside our dedicated airport emergency response team and the City of Peterborough's first responders. This ensures we're always ready should a real emergency arise.
