Qualicum Beach Airport

Welcome to the Qualicum Beach Airport - CAT4.

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 Transport Canada and the BC Provincial Government for our future success as a community airport.

The two main commercial operators are Island Express Air (providing scheduled service to Vancouver and Abbotsford) and Sunwest Helicopters Ltd (a commercial helicopter company). There is also a Sky Diving enterprise, SkyDive Vancouver Island based at the airport, as well as more than thirty locally based aircraft also frequently use the airport. In addition the Airport is home to the Final Approach Restaurant, which provides a full dining experience.

With full fuel service, paved runways, and good parking availability, CAT4 provides a transportation gateway that is both accessible and convenient.
