Welcome to Springbank Airport
The Springbank airport is located 10 kilometres west of Calgary City, slightly north of the Trans-Canada Highway #1. It is in the directly in the heart of Municipal District of Rocky View No. 44, and occupies approximately 420 hectares (1040 acres) of land. The airport is surrounded by mostly flat, agricultural land that slopes gently northward towards the Bow River. Springbank is conveniently located near suburban area of Calgary and many small towns like Bragg Creek and Cochrane. The Canadian federal government still maintains ownership of the Springbank Airport; however, all operations are contracted by lease to the Calgary Airport Authority.
COPA and the CBAA Support the CFS and CAP Amendments that Would Allow Jets in CYBW.

Rich Gage President and CEO of the CBAA and Kevin Psutka President of COPA have agreed to support the introduction of jet aircraft at the Springbank Airport. They have reviewed and approved of the proposed amendments to the CFS and CAP publications. SABPA contacted both groups on February 27th to campaign for their support. As usual COPA and CBAA response to our request was prompt and positively. The next step is for the Calgary Airport Authority (CAA) to present this information to Transport Canada and request that these amendments be made. SABPA has requested that the CAA issue a NOTAM with the proposed amendment as a temporary jet approval.
