Vernon Regional Airport, (IATA: YVEICAO: CYVK), is a small, non-towered airport located 1.8 nautical miles (3.3 km; 2.1 mi) southwest of Vernon, British Columbia, Canada. It is one of the few airports in the Okanagan Valley that can offer skydiving because all commercial operators must give written consent to a skydiving company for skydiving to occur, something which is not feasible at a larger airport like Kelowna International Airport.
