Winnipeg/Lyncrest Airport, (TC LID: CJL5), is a general aviation airfield located approximately 13 kilometres (8.1 mi) south-east from the center of Winnipeg. The airstrip was built in the 1950s for private use, then the land was sold to the City of Winnipeg and leased by a flying club, which purchased the 180 acre site from the city in 1996.[2]

The airfield is used by Shock Trauma Air Rescue Society (STARS) helicopters delivering patients to the nearby St. Boniface and Concordia hospitals.[3]
