Movements from Statistics Canada
In operation since 1928, it was Montreal's first and only airport until the construction of Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport (formerly Montréal/Dorval International Airport). On 1 August 1930, the R100 airship arrived after what was possibly the first non-stop passenger-carrying powered flight across the North Atlantic to land in Canada. As of 2012, it is Canada's busiest general aviation airport, ahead of Boundary Bay and Toronto/Buttonville, and is ranked as Canada's 6th busiest airport by aircraft movements. This airport mainly serves travellers to Quebec destinations.
The airport was divided into two sides, a military side along with the Pratt & Whitney Canada facility (facing runway 06L/24R) and a civilian side (facing runway 06R/24L). Today the military base, the former RCAF Station St Hubert, has ceased operations, but the Armed Forces still uses the base as a garrison comprising the tactical helicopter unit 438 Squadron and 34th Service Battalion. The ex-Pratt & Whitney hangar is owned and operated since 2012 as the largest FBO on the airport by an AvFuel branded dealer: CYHU H-18 Services Inc.
Following the new National Airports Policy announced by Transport Canada in 1994, ownership of the airport was transferred to a private corporation, Développement de l'aéroport Saint-Hubert de Longueuil (DASH-L), on 1 September 2004.
The airport is classified as an airport of entry by NAV CANADA and is staffed by the Canada Border Services Agency. CBSA officers at this airport currently can handle general aviation aircraft only, with no more than 15 passengers.
