About This File

FS2004 Scenery--Red Lake CYRL and CKS4 v1, Ontario, Canada. Red Lake is in Ontario, 90 miles east of the Manitoba border and 120 miles north of the U.S. The town is at what used to be the northern end of "the road" and this turned it into a center for floatplane flights north to fishing lodges etc. It has also come to be known as THE center of Noorduyn Norseman floatplanes in Canada, and there is a Norseman on display and an annual Norseman festival. Red Lake airport is around 3 miles north of the town with 5,000 feet of runway aligned 08-26 with PAPI at both ends. The apron is in two parts; the western is for the fire fighting planes and the eastern is for the new terminal and hangars for North Star, Superior, and Wasaya. There is a scruffy hangar that is used for storage, and private hangars south of the east apron. The town and the float base (CKS4) are at the southern end of Howey Bay, and take offs and landings are not allowed in the southern end of the bay; planes taxi north before going to full power. There are two main companies based at CKS4, Chimo and Greens, both of them using Norsemans (or Norsemen?) among other planes. Chimo services their fishing lodge and outposts in the Roderick Lake area, and Greens (their base is on the west side of Howey Bay) service their outposts on Trout Lake and Nungesser Lake in the AI. Other Red Lake float operations use Norsemans, flying from bases further north on the lake to Peisk Lake and Uchi Lake). The AI also includes some GA float planes. For new and corrected features in V1 see the enclosed write up. By Roger Wensley. (See also RED_LAKE_FIX.ZIP)
