Tyendinaga (Mohawk) Airport (TC LID: CPU6) is a registered aerodrome that is open to the public and caters mainly to general aviation. The aerodrome is located in Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory, 3 nautical miles (5.6 km; 3.5 mi) southwest of Tyendinaga, Ontario, Canada, north of the Bay of Quinte between Kingston and Belleville.

History[edit]

Originally known as Deseronto Airport, the field opened in 1917 as a training school for pilots during World War I. During World War II, it hosted the No. 1 Instrument Navigation School for the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan, providing advanced instrument-navigation training to air crews.

The aerodrome is currently the site of the First Nations Technical Institute and the First Nations Flying School.
