For those arriving by air to the UPAC convention on August 14-16 please be aware of the following procedures:
It’s a “see and be seen” situation! Proper circuit procedures are important, especially in high traffic areas around airstrips.
Bring your own tie downs and two-stroke oil.
We can supply auto gasoline, but have no aviation fuel.
Be sure to carry the proper do***ents for you aircraft (C of A, C of R, insurance, pilot permit/license, medical, etc). Make sure the data plate matches the do***ents.
The grass runway is 1980 ft. long and 75 ft wide with clear approaches.
Runway heading is 08-26. Latitude: 43°18.3’; longitude: 80° 32.9’.
We are about 11 air miles SW of the Waterloo Regional Airport, about 20 air miles ESE of Stratford Airport and about 20 air miles NNE of Brantford Airport.
Look for two yellow buildings with white roofs, one with a black roof and a silver colored arch building. Look for a lot of Canadian flags. The non-standard wind indicator is located on top of the white roofed building south of the runway. A second windsock will be at the NE corner of the fenced cow pasture.
Field elevation is 1000 feet ASL, circuits are left-hand and, for ultralights, 500 feet AGL (because we are under Class E controlled airspace with a 700 foot floor); for conventional aircraft, 1000 feet AGL.
Details are also in the Flying Farmers Ontario Air Strip charts under LUBITZ, BRIGHT.
We do not monitor the radio (NORDO) at the convention however we do suggest that those with radios in their planes use the usual 123.45 frequency and announce their intentions to "Lubitz airfield traffic". Please be careful!
