Chicoutimi/Saint-Honoré Aerodrome (ICAO: CYRC), is located 1.5 nautical miles (2.8 km; 1.7 mi) east southeast of Saint-Honoré and approximately 5.6 nautical miles (10.4 km; 6.4 mi) from Chicoutimi in Quebec, Canada.
The site, north of the Saguenay River, was selected by the Royal Canadian Air Force in the summer of 1941 and construction began shortly thereafter with the aerodrome opening in June 1942 as RCAF Station St-Honoré. It was operated as a sub-base to RCAF Station Bagotville and supported pilot training during the Second World War under the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan. It was closed on January 5, 1945 and was subsequently transferred to the local community after it ceased to have a military purpose; RCAF Station Bagotville was reactivated in 1951 as a training and operational base and continues to this day as CFB Bagotville.
