To be fair this is a very busy airline airport and the Airport Authority really want light aircraft to use Springbank instead. They do support Springbank and provide good services there (like Customs at their expense) to keep the small aircraft away from CYYC. You can land here if you want to, but it will cost you!

The FBOs charge various fees for parking. Please call them to avoid being surprised by high fees.

There are numerous fee-free alternatives in the area:

ESSO no longer sells Avgas. Their avgas tank needed replacing and they decided their avgas sales did not justify the investment. As of August, 2010 Shell Aerocentre still sold avgas

**Beware....As of July 2011 Shell/Landmark is charging ramp fees for small aricraft that take less than 200 litres of avgas. The fee is in the neighbourhood of 135.00 for a small single engine a/c. (Plus landing fee)
