Invermere Airport, (TC LID: CAA8), is located 1.4 nautical miles (2.6 km; 1.6 mi) northeast of Invermere, British Columbia, Canada on the Shuswap Indian Band Reserve.

As described in the Canada Flight Supplement it is a Prior Permission Required airport. Landing fees are only applicable to commercial aircraft. It is mostly for smaller propeller driven general aviation aircraft being only 3,000 ft (910 m) long, and larger aircraft must use Fairmont Hot Springs Airport, around 20 km (12 mi) away.

In the summer months there can be heavy glider activity from Invermere Soaring Centre.[2] Babin Air[3] is the local air operator and Approved Maintenance Organization (AMO) offering scenic, charter flights and maintenance.
