Peterborough Airport, (IATA: YPQICAO: CYPQ), is located 3 nautical miles (5.6 km; 3.5 mi) south-southwest of the city of Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. The airport includes a main 7,000 by 100 ft (2,134 by 30 m) asphalt runway oriented east-west, and a smaller 1,782 by 100 ft (543 by 30 m) paved (2014) runway oriented northwest-southeast. A new terminal building was built in 2011. Aircraft completions company Flying Colours Corp. is the largest tenant at the airport.

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.[1]

Work was been completed to expand an existing 5,000 ft (1,524 m) asphalt runway to 7,000 ft (2,134 m), making the runway capable of handling larger aircraft such as the Airbus A320 and the Boeing 737.[4]

Seneca College relocated its School of Aviation Technology to Peterborough Airport in January 2014, after their former airport Buttonville was slated to close. Seneca had 170 students in classes at its new facility in 2014. The $8.6 million contract was awarded to Mortlock Construction Inc. Mortlock significantly expanded an existing building that the city owned at the airport to about 46,000 square feet from 21,000 square feet, and completed the interior of the structure to the college’s specifications with offices, rooms for flight simulators, classrooms, a student lounge, washrooms and a kitchen. Seneca’s School of Aviation and Flight Technology has 18 aircraft to the airport.[5] [6]
