Guelph Airport (TC LID: CNC4) is located 1.3 nautical miles (2.4 km; 1.5 mi) northeast of Guelph, Ontario, Canada. It consists of two runways, 14/32 and 05/23. Although known to residents as the "Guelph Airport" or "Guelph Airpark", it is actually an aerodrome, being registered, and not certified, by Transport Canada.

The airport is classified as an airport of entry by Nav Canada and is staffed by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) on a call-out basis. At this airport the CBSA handles general aviation aircraft only, with no more than 15 passengers.[1]

Founded in 1954 by aviation enthusiast Len Ariss, the aerodrome remained in the Ariss family until August 2011 when it was sold to Mr. Inglis Berry.[3]

Guelph Airpark in 2016[edit]

The airfield has one major tenant, the Tiger Boys Aircraft Works, and numerous private owners. Fern Villeneuve keeps his aircraft there.

Guelph Airpark is a transfer point for the Province of Ontario's air ambulance service - ORNGE. ORNGE helicopters land on the ramp near the terminal building and transfer patients to and from land ambulances. Antique aircraft often use the grass between runway 05/23 and the east-west taxiway for landings and takeoffs. Occasionally gliders on cross-country flights land at Guelph if they run out of lift.

Runway 14/32 has lighting. There is a weather station about 2 kilometres west of the airfield on the grounds of the University of Guelph's Turf Grass Institute. In 2016 Environment Canada reports some observations from this station.

In the spring of 2016 eight new hangars are under construction.
