Welcome to the Nanaimo Fly-in!
As some of you may have noticed, I’m a bit partial to holding events in the Vancouver Area ;)
A Little Bit About CYCD
- The Nanaimo Airport is located on Vancouver Island, in beautiful British Columbia, surrounded by mountains, glaciers, oceans and forests.
- The Nanaimo and Ladysmith area are actually where a post-apocalyptic* novel I’m writing takes place.
- CYCD is currently undergoing an expansion, adding a new terminal.
- This airport sees commercial traffic, typically Westjet and Air Canada Dash 8s among other smaller turboprops.
- The hamburgers at the cafe at CYCD are killer.
- In non-COVID-19 times, this airport sees 870+ scheduled flights each month and serve 430,000+ passengers annually!
* I use the phrase ‘post-apocalyptic’ lightly, because that’s not entirely what it focuses on. It’s really about the good side of humanity, where in all the chaos good people will come together, help one another, and make the best of a bad situation.
