    Banff Airport (CYBA)

    Hi All,
    Just wondering if anyone has ever been to Banff Airport (CYBA) in Alberta, Canada? I had thought of flying there, but some information says it is for diversionary purpose only, but would be interesting to get a first hand account.

    Many Thanks,
    David

    This isn't much of a report, but I drove past it today. It looked ok.


    There where no planes on the airport that I saw.

    It has small cones as runway markers and I think it would be tough to see them from far up or far off. If there is much wind a landing could be pretty exciting.

    I am flying a load of fisherman and our plane required a bunch of pavement so we landed at Calgary. I think they're fishing the Bow River. Me and my Co drove up to Banff for lunch and walked around town.
    Hope someone local is more familiar and can provide you with better info.

    When I landed there back in about 1981, the folks at the High River airport told me that sometimes the two windsocks could be opposite. Was nice when i landed and took off though.

    Hi David,

    I used to go in there regularly back in the day. Unfortunately the airport is now emergency use only as clearly indicated in the Canada Flight Supplement. Landing outside of that premiss would likely lead to action by Parks Canada in conjunction with Transport Canada... The close proximity of the field to the town would make it hard to not get noticed. Parks worked hard to close both Banff and Jasper. Banff is now emergency only but Jasper still allows for recreational use (see picture) but there is a nominal self pay landing fee assessed. I gladly pay it since the stop is always pleasant. Hope this helps,

    Fred
