Remarks NOTE: This aerodrome is actually just on the US side of the border, but is operated as an international facility for Customs clearance as part of the International Peace Garden. It is also possible to land here to just visit the International Peace Garden as COPA Flight 35 Winnipeg do each year, but this requires prior coordination.

CUSTOMS: Is available 24/7 for aircraft up to 15 seats. Normal prior notification of two hours is required - you cannot just show up here to clear Customs in either direction. Contact either Canadian or US Customs on 122.8 MHz. Canada Customs 888-226-7277. US Customs 701-263-4513.

CAUTION: Deer in the vicinity and may also be on the runway, too.

PROCEDURES: Aircraft entering Canada park on the north apron, which is located in Canada.

Local Tourism Contacts & Telephone Numbers
Local Activities, Sights & Events of Interest to Visitors During early years of WWII airport had a very unique role.Roosevelt's Lend Lease Act of 1941 March 11 during intense U boat activity in North Atlantic permitted the desperately needed long range Lockheed Hudsons and Venturas to fly from California factories to Canadian border. Except US Army air corps pilots in Air Transport Command service couldn't enter Canada so planes were flown to border airstrips and parked. International Peace Gardens was one such historic airstrip. Noteworthy, local Manitoba farmers volunteered for unique night duty.They took teams of horses attached them to the parked Hudson-Ventura tail wheels and pulled the aircraft across the border to the Canadian side of the airstrip whereby the next morning RCAF ferry command pilots crewed them and flew them to the Atlantic for coastal service.On a humourous note in the morning very unique FOD was found on the rwy and apron which crews disposed of with a shovel :)
