Uncertainty over Banff and Jasper airstrips resolved
From Feb. 21:
Long awaited amendments to the National Parks Aircraft Access Regulations were Gazetted (came into law) on February 13, meaning Banff and Jasper continue to be available for emergency/diversionary use and Jasper is now available for non-commercial recreational use. This is the end of a very long process which began in 1987 when Parks decided to delist the airstrips. The process accelerated after the Aircraft Access Regulations were amended in 1997 and charges were subsequently filed against area pilots for flying into Banff.
