The Restaurant, "L'Aileron", is located in terminal building on the main floor. The restaurant closes at 2pm every day.The peas soup is excellent and they make a very good chicken sandwich. I've never had to wait very long even when they are busy. The french canadian pea soup is fantastic and they make a superb mushroom omlette, pankakes etc. Highly recommended

Remarks Right hand circuits to runway 27

Airport is very close to Ottawa/Rockcliffe and close to controlled airspace for Ottawa International.

Caution for birds, hang gliders, aerobatics, warbirds/fighters and parachuting in the area!

The airport is used for low level aerobatics practice during the summer and Mike Potters warbirds are often doing low/fast passes and low level aerobatics.

Two kinds of aerobatic practice are used. Full use of the airspace from surface to 2500AGL over runway and north about 1 kilometer (traffic permitting). Or when there is circuit traffic, 1500AGL to 2500AGL directly over the runway and north about 1 kilometer.
