The Nanaimo Airport facilitates commercial, industrial and recreational activities by providing passenger connectivity and air cargo access. Our operations support critical services such as medical supply delivery, medical transportation as well as charters, and over-night cargo services.
Noise associated with an airport can be attributed to a number of causes including aircraft take-offs and landings as well as engine run-ups (tests performed on aircraft engines after maintenance to ensure safety) and general noise from ground service equipment.
While the benefits of our facility are far reaching we are aware of the potential negative impacts of aircraft noise on the surrounding community. In an effort to reduce noise impact on neighbours from arriving and departing aircraft, YCD has established a noise mitigation program.
