Gimli Airport

The Gimli Airport is located in Gimli, MB, 45 minutes north of Winnipeg off PTH 8 and west on PR 231.
The airport is located in the Gimli Business Park, 6 kms west of the town site.
The airport has one of the province’s longest rural concrete runways at 6,800ft x 150ft.
The airport also has 3 taxiways and 2 aprons, runway lighting for night operations, and a VFR Airport with NDB Beacon.
There is an existing tower; however, it is only manned in the summer months by the Regional Gliding School cadets.
A terminal building with 24 hour year round access and a washroom is available.
The airport has recently installed a fuel system that provides AVGAS 100LL and Jet A1 Fuel available for purchase. There are no landing fees and there are 10 tie downs available.
The airport is open and maintained year round.
Located in the Business Park, there are many businesses, and a large dormitory owned by the RM of Gimli.
Adjacent to the airport, on a former runway, is a Motor Sports Park where drag racing, sports car racing, go karting, motorbikes, off road vehicles, and motocross bikes race.
It was on this runway that the famous "Gimli Glider” safely landed nearly 30 years ago. The "Gimli Glider” was an Air Canada Boeing 767 enroute from Montreal to Edmonton, ran out of fuel and had to make an emergency landing in Gimli.
Needless to say, the Gimli Airport can accommodate larger aircrafts.
