File Description:
Kuujjuarapik is in northern Quebec at the southern end of Hudson Bay, 90 miles east of James Bay and on the north shore of the Great Whale River; Kuujjuarapik means Small Great River in Inuktitut. Once again the Hudson Bay trading post that opened (in 1820) was the catalyst for the establishment of first a seasonal encampment and then the beginnings of a town in the late 1930's.
The two adjacent villages that now form the town have a total population (mainly Cree and Inuit) of around 1,500. When the Quebec hydo-electric project was under construction in the early 1980's a large portion of the Inuit population voted to move to a new settlement called Umiujaq (my post) 100 miles to the north.

The airport is to the west of the town, between the town and the sea. The gravel and sand runway (which I have made as gravel as there is no convincing way to mix the two) is 5,500 feet long, 150 feet wide, and aligned 17/35, which is approximately parallel to the coast. There is fuel available, both 100LL and JetA, delivered by truck. The AI included here is for Air Inuit and Wasaya, with Air Inuit making three flights per day plus a fourth flight by the Air Inuit Twotter C-GNDO that is based at the airport, and private flights by various aircraft. Yes, there really is a golf course to the south of the airport, and the last thing to note is that Kuujjuarapik has a mandatory radio frequency and that taking into consideration the scheduled flights I have included the tower radio frequency that makes this a controlled airport in FS9.
