Debert Airport (TC LID: CCQ3) is located near Debert, Nova Scotia, Canada and has three runways.

It was established in 1941 as RCAF Station Debert and was used during World War II as a British Commonwealth Air Training Plan facility for training aircrew.

In 1971, the Debert Airport and its surrounding land was purchased by the Government of Nova Scotia for development as the Debert Air Industrial Park, and in 1972, the Truro Flying Club was formed.

Today, the Debert Flight Centre, a division of the original Truro Flying Club, still provides instruction to pilots, from student pilots to commercial students.

Each summer, the airport is home to the Atlantic Regional Gliding School's flying activities, during which a group of Royal Canadian Air Cadets train to receive their Glider Pilot's License.
