Qualicum Beach Airport

Welcome to the Qualicum Beach Airport! The following is provided for you as a source of information regarding the Qualicum Beach Municipal Airport. As you will see from the following reports and statistics, the Qualicum Beach Airport has been in existence since 1954 and serves not only Qualicum Beach, but Parksville and the surrounding area as well. It is hoped that we will continue to augment the services that we offer to the flying public and continue to receive assistance from both D.O.T. and M.O.T. for our future success as a community airport.
