Baddeck (Crown Jewel) Airport, (TC LID: CDW2), is a registered aerodrome located 3.1 nautical miles (5.7 km; 3.6 mi) north of Baddeck, Nova Scotia, Canada.

While the surrounding scenery is quite beautiful, in strong wind conditions there can be significant turbulence for light aircraft on approach to runway 22, due to the aerodrome's location in the foothills overlooking Baddeck. The hilly location is why runway 04 uses non-standard right hand circuits.
