CTQ2 Flyins

Ninth Annual Fly in at Stanstead/Weller CTQ2
Put it on your calendar—Saturday September 7, 2019.
By deciding to fly in, all pilots agree to accept their own responsibility as there is no insurance.
Our nineth annual meeting at CTQ2 (Stanstead Weller 2,600′ of good grass) on Saturday, September 7,  2019. 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 20$.  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 own special variety of potatoes- “Golden Delicious” which are great fixed in all ways.

John has finished building a 20’x30′ two level cabin next to one of our ponds.
Check it out or call for more information 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. so far.   It might help if all US pilots  sent an email requesting the privilege of flying direct to CTQ2 that Saturday to:  Marie-claude.Bibeau.C1A@parl.gc.ca   Jacqueline Belleau is her very kind and helpful Office Director.

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.
