About This File

FS2004 Scenery--Kuujjuarapik (CYGW), north Quebec, Canada. Kuujjuarapik is in northern Quebec at the southern end of Hudson Bay 90 miles east of James Bay, on the north Shore of the Great Whale River (Whapmagoostui River, in Cree). Once again the Hudson Bay trading post that opened (in 1820) was the catalyst for the the beginnings of a town in the late 1930's. The US base that was established in the 1940's and the Canadian radar operating base that was established in the mid 1950's (now closed) both employed local workers and the permanence was reinforced. The two adjacent villages that form the town have a total population (mainly Cree and Inuit) of around 1500. 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 runway is 5500 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 has Air Inuit and Wasaya with Air Inuit making three flights per day, plus a night flight by the Air Inuit Twotter C-GNDO that is based at the airport, plus private aircraft. GNDO is fitted with skis in the winter and used for transporting hunters who are visiting from the south, landing on the frozen lakes to deliver them to various camps. And yes, there really is a golf course to the south of the airport. By Roger Wensley.
