FS2004 – Scenery Dawson Creek

Dawson 06

FS2004 – Scenery Dawson Creek (CYDQ and CBD3) in British Columbia, Canada. Dawson Creek is at 2148 feet asl just east of the Rocky Mountains, less than 10 miles west of the BC/Alberta border and 110 miles west of Peace River (the town). The Alaska Highway was built in 1942 and Dawsons Creek is where it starts from. The airport is just to the east of the town with a runway 5000 feet long aligned 06/24, lit, and with PAPI and approach lights. There is a second runway to the north with the same alignment, a water runway separately designated as Dawson Creek CBD3. The two effectively operate as one; traffic for both use the mandatory frequency of 122.2. The scattered aprons vary from asphalt, to concrete, onwards to gravel, and then further onwards to some gravel amid the bare dirt. AI includes Central Mountain Air with two daily scheduled flights and Northern Cariboo as one of the airlines that occasionally runs charter flights in CYDQ. There are also private GA flights, and float plane flights into and out of CBD3. Watch the first 6 minutes of the video. By Roger Wensley.
