Boundary Bay is south of Vancouver in British Columbia, close to the US/Canada border. It is the 5th busiest airfield in Canada measured in terms of take offs and landings as there are several training companies based there. The airfield was purchased by Alpha Aviation in 2009 and and modernised for the 2010 Winter Olympics, the main addition being a new terminal. This is an ex-military training base which was built in 1941, and one of the original hangars still survives. The two runways in use now (07/25 5,600' and 12/30 2,750', both of them 100' wide) are reduced asphalted areas of the original runways; the third runway is now an apron for GA parking and has had hangars built along it. There is JetA and 100LL available. The large building at the east end of the north apron is a HQ and maintenance facility for a helicopter company, Heli-one. All of the north apron buildings on the field have been modelled specifically for this scenery, plus the nearby huge greenhouse farm structures which are visible from further away than the airfield is. AI for Boundary Bay will be posted later this week.
