The town of Kitchener is in southern Ontario, 40 miles southwest of Toronto. The population is just over half a million, including the adjoining Cambridge and Waterloo which are known locally as the Tri Cities. The Kitchener name was adopted in 1916, replacing the former "City of Berlin".
The airport is on the northeastern side of the town, with the main runway aligned 08-26 and just over 7,000 feet of asphalt 150 feet wide, lit, with PAPI at both ends and approach lighting and ILS on 26. The second runway is aligned 14-32 and is 4,100 feet long, lit and with PAPI at both ends; right hand circuits for 32. The airport is being steadily enlarged and improved, with new hangars for rental, operators, and maintenance companies. The largest and most visible presence is the training operation located just off the southwest end of taxiway A, where there are 14 Cessna 172, 2 Cessna 152, 2 Piper Seminole, and others. These are represented in the AI. There are morning and evening scheduled flights by Westjet to Calgary and American Eagle to Chicago, also in the AI. To the southwest, past taxiway C, there is GA parking; request taxi to what is named here "southwest parking" where there are spaces on both grass and asphalt. To the southeast, along a taxiway off the southeast corner of the main apron, are mainly operators and maintenance facilities. This version of CYKF includes the new(ish) terminal, the first of the new central rental hangars alongside the new taxiway and access road, and the very new large hangar off taxiway C, but not the new airport services building (fire and snow clearance) that is off to the southeast of taxiway A, and not the new car park to the south of the airport access road. So an uncertain and possibly historically innacurate date, but with the correct taxiway lighting and signage, and building textures from photographs.
