Airport History: RCAF Station Carp was originally built as the satellite field for No. 2 Service Flying Training School at RCAF Station Uplands (now Ottawa International)from August 5 1940 to April 14 1945.

Aircraft flown by 2SFTS included the Harvard and Yale.

Carp was used as a place to do circuits and a safe place to land if Uplands was blocked by storms or poor weather.

The field was also used by aircraft of the No. 3 Flying Instructor School and No. 1 Flight Engineer School at nearby Arnprior between August 3 1942 and Jan 28 1944.

The aircraft flown by these schools included the Avro Anson, Fleet-built Fairchild Cornell, Fleet Finch, Cessna Crane, Fleet Fawn, NA Harvard, Boeing Stearman and DHC82C Tiger Moth.
