Flying and Planes

Can you believe it- 60 planes flew in to our fly in Sunday September 9, 2018, and one RV flew up from NYC, flew over and back to NYC, as CTQ2 does not yet have CANPASS.  Here  are some   photos.

from Nils Jensen showing partially full field of visitors.

Some said that a good flyin has about 25 planes attending and a major flyin has about 50.  I wonder how many will come  Saturday September 14, 2019 to our next flyin.
Eighth Annual Fly in at Stanstead/Weller CTQ2
By deciding to fly in, all pilots agree to accept their own responsibility as there is no insurance.
Our eighth annual meeting at CTQ2 (Stanstead Weller 2,600′ of good grass) on Sunday, September 9,  2018. If you wish to stay for the night in a tent under your plane’s wing, you are more than welcome.
 
There will be our grass fed Beefalo hamburgers, potato salad and corn on the cob, all grown on our farm for 15$.  You can eat as much corn on the cob as you want.
 
We also have organically grown farm items for sale:  sweet cider in season, apple cider vinegar,  Golden Retriever puppies, u-pick garden produce(pick, weigh on scale, check price sheet, pay into jar), and orchard with disease resistant apples and pears, trout fishing.  Don’t forget our special own variety of potatoes- “Golden Delicious” which are great fixed in all ways.
John is finishing building a 20’x30′ two level cabin next to one of our ponds.  It should be for rent very soon.  Just check 819-876-2528.
 
You will find all the information for Stanstead/Weller CTQ2 airports in the CFS.  
 
We are still trying to get the Canadian CBSA to come give customs clearance for a two hour period from 10am to 12 noon, but not having any luck.  This is in spite of the fact I let the RCMP use CTQ2 every week for their patrol of the border, probably saving the Canadian government a thousand dollars in manpower and helicopter time a week. At that rate I have saved the CDN gov’t at least $25,000.   It might help if US pilots all sent an email requesting the privilege of flying direct to CTQ2 that Sunday to:  Marie-Claude.Bibeau.C1A@parl.gc.ca   Jacqueline Belleau is her very kind and helpful Office Director.

Weller Airport (CTQ2)

Welcome to our family built, owned and operated airport CTQ2!

CTQ2 is a good 2,600′ grass runway that we smoothed and widened in 2015 to make for good approaches for even high performance aircrafts, such as our high performance Aerocanard project. Everybody is welcome to fly in, but must agree to assume all risks such as wildlife like deer, moose, ducks and geese, and possibly escaped cows.

An airline pilot who has flown in many countries recently told us that CTQ2 is the best small airport, not just in North America, but in the world because of the views, runway, etc. Quite a compliment! Come see, is it is true?

Open in summer.
