Picture from our 11th annual fly-in:
There were between 45 and 50 airplanes on the field at one time or another. Here is a picture of some of them with the runway on the right side of the picture. We also served over 150 meal with almost all of the ingredients grown on our farm here. Everyone seemed to have a good time. It was also a good way to educate novices about flying and homebuilt small aircraft construction and the theory of flight.
Eleventh Annual Fly-in
This years fly-in will be Saturday Sept 11, 2021 (9/11), and will be our 11th annual CTQ2 fly-in picnic. Good grass 2,600′ runway and lots of parking space.

It will be nice to Commemorate the 20th anniversary of the crash into the twin towers in NYC in A POSITIVE WAY by exhibiting the best in aviation.
Feel free to contact Mme Bibeau ( Marie-Claude.Bibeau@parl.gc.ca ) inquiring why US small airplanes cannot attend this event, and why we cannot get CANPASS for this event.
Tenth Annual Flyin 2020
Our 2020 Flyin was 12 September Saturday.
We once again hosted the annual fly-in and corn feed the second Saturday in Sept on the 12th.
Bring masks, enjoy the space with social distancing. See interesting airplanes, old friends, in a spacious environment with views, trails, ponds and a sawmill.
If interested we can show you our off grid four story hanger building that we designed and built with mostly our own wood with its 16′ octagon tower. It has a solar power system, and a water source heat pump system we designed and installed ourselves. Lower level is airplane hanger, second level is dance hall and venue for rent for weddings, etc, third and forth levels are for living and panoramic 360 degree views .
Remember, by choosing to fly in, you are choosing to come and attend at your own risk. There is no insurance here. Helpers are welcome (parking planes in rows, putting up signs, picking and husking corn from the garden, cooking, etc.). Please let me know what you might be able to do ahead of time. Thanks.
All you can eat sweet corn, as well as salads and a Beefalo burger for $20.pp, all grown on our farm here organically.
Also, continue to enjoy our unique anytime drive-in fly-in U-Pic garden. You just pick, check price, weigh, and put money in a box , all by yourself anytime.
Remember, CTQ a growing airport with space for more tie-downs and hangers.
Due to liability risks and suits and there being no insurance, you are required to sign the following form and send it to me. Email is ok as long as it is signed. Donations for us to take care of the airport are always welcome to be put in a black mailbox attached to the big wooden hanger door, but there is no charge.
Many thanks for the great fly-in. It is the most enjoyable one to attend. Great spot, great welcome. I might visit again before winter sets-in.
Here are some photos that you can download.

Sixth Annual Fly in at Stanstead/Weller CTQ2
Sept 17, 2016 was a great event! About 30 airplanes came and lots of people. We ran out of veggie salads and burgers, but had an unlimited supply of our great sweet corn since the garden is not far away and we planted 3 plantings to be sure. Many came in for the first time and said it was great and they would bring lots of friends next year.
Below is a slide show from this years fly-in:
The discussion about the Canada/USA border went well with lots of requests for an easier border crossing for Americans and Canadians, especially for airplanes. You should hear lots more about our CANUSA Project in the next two years and possibly a major publicity entertainment event.
We are hosting our annual corn boil cookout Saturday Sept 17, 2016 with all the corn you can eat, Beefalo burgers, salads, etc. for $15. donation. People usually arrive starting 10am ‘ish.
The runway is now improved with wider space either side at the south end and is now very smooth as I bought an old road grader and used it to fill in bits of irregularities with dirt and then grassed it over last fall.
Also I have applied for CANPASS approval for summer use of CTQ2. It is a long shot, but it may happen as I have council bylaw support from all nearby communities. If it happens I will send out another email and those in the USA with CANPASS will be able to fly directly here and get Customs. If so the name I originally put on my first hanger WELLER INTERNATIONAL may become true.
The community of Stanstead East, where we are located, is having a community get together Sunday August 21 based here at CTQ2, also starting 10am ‘ish. They are highlighting aviation as well as other local businesses in the area. It would be nice if some of you flew in with your conventional and homebuilt aircraft to show the general public something about your passion for aviation. There will be hot dogs, etc and music provided by the town. I am told there will be some sort of wooden plane building project for all the kids, with which some of you might like to get involved. If you have more aviation related ideas, let me know and I will suggest them to the town.
We will also have our organically grown market garden and orchard (pears and summer apples) u-pick produce for sale then.
We have a cookout of Beefalo burger and other naturally grown food raised on our farm: homemade rolls, fresh picked sweet corn, potato salad and garden salad.
