About This File

FS2004 Scenery--Dawson City (CYDA), Yukon Territory, Canada. Dawson City is in the Yukon Territory, Canada, 140 miles south of Old Crow and about the same north of Whitehorse. The town has a population of just over 1300 and is on the bank of the Yukon River. It relies economically on nearby gold mining and tourism and there are regular flights by Air North, the Yukon airline, and these are included in the AI along with ConAir and GA. The airport is beside the Klondike Highway that links Dawson City to Whitehorse, a few miles southwest of the town and the river. The runway approaches are steeper than most because of the surrounding hills and the Canada Flight Supplement notes that use is restricted to daylight hours, with some exceptions. The runway is gravel and just over 5000 feet long, aligned 02-20. There is a second apron for the activities of ConAir, etc. in the summer fire-fighting months, and the adjacent "masts" are actually for fire hose drying. The video shows the terminal with its new light gray cladding; the original was dark red, as it is in this post. By Roger Wensley.
