Castlegar Airport Information

The West Kootenay Regional Airport,(Castlegar Airport)(IATA: YCG) is a small regional airport located in Castlegar, British Columbia. Owned and operated by the City of Castlegar, YCG has a 15,317 square feet (1,423 m2) passenger terminal. Due to the mountainous terrain impinging on both runway approaches, there is no possibility of a straight-in approach. The airport is therefore certified for day operations only, and the glideslope on approach is set to a steep 5% rather than the standard 2.5%. The instrument approaches to Castlegar are considered among the most challenging of any in use at a commercial airport in North America. Castlegar airport is currently (as of 2006) developing departure procedures for nighttime operation.
