18.54: Airport at The Pas

The airport at The Pas is different from those shown previously (figures 18.45 to 18.53). In this area of central Manitoba, open flat land is not as easy to find as it is in the south. Consequently the location of this field is similar to the location of airports of major cities in that it is located far from the community it serves. The Pas airport 1 is at least 15 miles (24 km) northeast of town on the south shore of Clearwater Lake 2 reached by PR 287 3. Also the triangular shape is missing. Here there are two runways one trending west-northwest/east southeast 4 and the other northwest/southeast 5, the longer of the two. Terminal buildings 6 are located east of the latter. Two large planes 7 and two small planes 8 can be seen on the taxiing area near the terminal buildings.

Note also the sewage lagoon 9 located north of the airport.
