Pemberton Regional Airport, (ICAO: CYPS), is a registered aerodrome located 5 nautical miles (9.3 km; 5.8 mi) south southeast of Pemberton, British Columbia, Canada. Canadians and a few US pilots practiced landing here, to train for Kandahar, Afghanistan.

Facilities[edit]

There is an automatic weather station, but there are no lights, towers or navigational assistance. The runway is not always plowed in winter. There is Jet A fuel and 100LL available from Blackcomb Aviation with two hours prior notice.

Pemberton Regional Airport Authority[edit]

Began by the Pemberton Flying Club circa 1970. Oral history states it was based on a post war "back of the envelope" design by Boeing himself. The airport land was a Federal Crown Grant to the town in 1985. The Pemberton Airport Committee underwent several more incarnations before finally being incorporated under the British Columbia Society Act, in 2007 as Pemberton Regional Airport Authority or PRAA. As with all non-profit societies, all funds and/or profits must be used only for the society.
