Cooking Lake Airport offers year round tie down services for aircraft. We currently offer 31 tie-down parking stalls of which 10 have electrical power. Tie-down parking stalls are maintained year round which includes snow removal and mowing of the grass taxiways.
Please note that tenants are responsible for removal of snow and grass mowing in the immediate vicinity of their aircraft - the taxiways will only be maintained to approximately 3 metres in front and 3 metres behind aircraft in Lot A and B. In Lot C, the taxiway will only be maintained to 3 metres in front of aircraft.
Grass tie down (no power): $750 + GST per year ($787.50)
Grass tie-down with electricity: $1500 + GST per year ($1575)
Visitor Parking: $10 per night (maximum stay - 7 days)
Aircraft must be parked in their assigned locations.
Aircraft must be tied down securely at all times.
Licensees may use the installed anchor cables or other approved ground anchor system to secure their aircraft. Above ground weights such as concrete blocks/concrete filled pails are not adequate for anchoring aircraft and are not permitted.
Tie-down ropes and anchors must not extend more than 1 metre laterally from the aircraft to avoid being accidentally snagged by snow clearing and grass mowing equipment, or other aircraft.
Form-fitting aircraft canopy, wing and elevator covers, if used, must be properly secured to the aircraft at all times. Damaged covers must be immediately repaired or removed so that they do not present a risk to adjacent aircraft.
Temporary shelters or tarps are not permitted.
Operation of street vehicles on any airside lands (including taxiways, aprons, runways) or grass taxiways is strictly prohibited. Unauthorized operation of street vehicles may result in fines up to $5,000, per occurrence.
Tie down stalls must be kept clean and uncluttered to reduce the risk of foreign object damage (FOD) to aircraft. Trash and other loose objects are not permitted to be stored on site.
Concrete patio blocks may be used as wheel pads but plywood pads are not permitted because they can be picked up by strong winds and thrown against adjacent aircraft.
Dumping of oil or gasoline samples is not permitted. Fuels sampling should be done using a GATS jar (or equivalent) so that sampled fuel can be returned to the aircraft fuel tanks instead of dumped on the ground.
