City Centre Airport Update
the future of the City Centre Airport is still being decided, the City of
Edmonton's proposed closure of the airport will not be initiated until after
2015. Having the one operational runway (12/30) still fully functional,
means that flight training has not missed a beat and will continue operating
as usual until then.
