2007 Airports: St-Hyacinthe, QC

CSU3 - N45 36 18 W73 00 51             

Click here for the 2006 pictures.

This regional airport is located south of Montreal and has the peculiarity of having an artificial pond next to the runway for seaplane operations.

This is where I did most of my training for the conversion to tail-wheel in my C-140.  This is also where my maintenance base is located, Ray-Air Maintenance.  I now have many friends there and often fly there for a quick bite (great restaurant) and cheap 100LL !


May 2007:  Took some pictures of transient aircraft on a breakfast flight.  Was also told that the airport now sports an acro practice box between 2000 and 4000 ft.  That explains the aerobatic aircrafts pics below and the annual competition held there since last year !
