Carlyle Airport's runway to regional airport designation
The Carlyle Airport Commission- whose members include The Town of Carlyle, the R.M. Of Moose Mountain and the Carlyle Flying Club- have both a proposal and a plan to lengthen the town's airport runway to 5,000 feet from its current 3,153 feet. This allows the runway to accommodate jet aircraft with a 75-foot wingspan, granting the Ted Brady Municipal Airport the designation of regional airport, as well as bringing added economic, social and medical benefits to the area, according to Blair Andrew, co-chair of the Carlyle Airport Commission.
“A 75-foot wingspan is a pretty big, small aircraft,” says Andrew. “A decent-sized business class aircraft, like a Citation or a King Air.”
Expanding the current 3,153 ft. asphalt runway so that it could accommodate jet aircraft would be accomplished largely by purchasing land from a private landowner. This would add 1,500 feet to the current runway to the west. The first of two phases of construction is already underway. A 500-foot extension is currently being built on donated land and will house a weather station. During these two phases of development, lighting upgrades and improved GPS will also be added.
Andrew says that Carlyle's airport is already fulfilling most of the functions of a regional airport. “Right now, Estevan's runway is 5,000 feet and Virden's is 4,000 feet. I've had people tell me how ideally-situated Carlyle's airport is. Hotels, a restaurant, cars and shopping are all within walking distance. Most regional airports are a few miles out of town, and often, pilots and passengers are stuck waiting for a taxi that may or may not come.”
