FS2004 – Kangirsuk CYAS in Quebec Canada. Kangirsuk is an Inuit village in northern Quebec, on the coast of Ungava Bay. The airport is the only means of access on this coast for the population of around 550, apart from a period in late summer. It is between Quaqtaq and Aupaluk, and around 140 miles north of Kuujjuaq, a major centre in this area for supplies, medical care, education, and anything to do with local government. This version of the airport and village is from around 2010, with the original terminal building that has now been replaced. The runway is just under 3,500 feet of lit gravel aligned 04-22 and the AI includes the daily Air Inuit flight that connects Kangirsuk with Kuujjuaq and other local airfields en route. This is almost certainly the last of the northern Quebec coastal airfields that I will be able to model with the correct buildings; only two missing so not too bad.
