Be Aware:
Brandon Airport Customs Fees:
After 9/11 Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) stopped providing Canada Customs services at Brandon. To regain their Customs services and AOE status Brandon has to purchase Customs services on a "per aircraft" basis.
Brandon airport charges this cost of providing Canada Customs clearance directly to the aircraft owner. The airport is currently being charged by Canada Customs $600-$1000 per aircraft. If you clear customs here you will be billed that amount for the service. So don't plan to clear Customs here unless paying that much is acceptable to you.
Brandon airport is suggesting smaller aircraft can clear customs at the peace gardens free of charge. Runway 10 / 28 is 3000'. This airstrip can be found in the Flight Supplement under Dunseith/Intl Peace Garden ND USA.

Brandon Flying Club - great folks, free transient tiedowns and expensive non-courtesy car. Expensive after hours fuel services. The Flying club is charging for every small service now. A bad place to stop. It used to be fabulous but things have changed for the BAD.
