Airdrie Aerodrome (TC LID: CEF4) is a registered aerodrome located 2.6 nautical miles (4.8 km; 3.0 mi) southeast of Airdrie, Alberta, Canada.

History[edit]

The aerodrome was used as the primary relief landing field for No. 3 Service Flying Training School (SFTS)during World War II. No. 3 SFTS was based out of RCAF Station Lincoln Park in Calgary.

Aerodrome information[edit]

In approximately 1942 the aerodrome was listed at 51°16′N 113°56′W / 51.267°N 113.933°W / 51.267; -113.933 with a Var. 24 degrees E and elevation of 3650'. The aerodrome was listed with three runways as follows: [2]

Airdrie Regional Airshow[edit]

The Airdrie Regional Airshow is held here every 2 years. Displays such as the Snowbirds, Viper West and CF-18 hornet demo team have been shown in the past. Display dates include July 16 and 17.

Due to the opening of runway 17L/35R at Calgary International Airport in 2014, the airshow is being relocated, most likely to the nearby Calgary/Springbank Airport.
