Check out the Beiseker Airport!

As you may know Beiseker now owns its airport.  During the summer of 2010 the provincial government repaved the 3000 ft. runway, an approach zone, the large apron and three taxiways - then they gave the airport to the the Village of Beiseker

The airport attracts mostly recreational pilots who want to fly in a less crowded airspace.  We have had six new hangars built over the past year and a half with more coming this spring!  The new skydive company has been operating for about five years now and offers a fantastic skydive program with safety a top concern!   Each summer two aerial applicator companies make our airport home as they work over the fields around here.

To show off our airport, the airport society and the Village have been sponsoring a coffee and muffin morning each month in the society's clubhouse at the airport.  It's open to anyone who would like to check out our little airport and what goes on there. 

Each third Saturday of every month (that makes our next one Saturday, January 21) from 10:00 a.m. until Noon is Airport Coffee Time!   Come on out to our airport, meet some of the pilots, have a coffee and a muffin.  Check out the Beiseker Airport!


  1. I heard that the village is advertising for a new grocery store chain as the Family Foods is now more of a convenience store (without the hours). Is this true?

  2. To my knowledge, there has been no formal request made by the Village of Beiseker to attract another grocery store to the village. That said, the current situation has most villagers very concerned for our commercial sector. If a grocery shopper is lured out of the village because of high prices and reduced hours of operation in the village, they could do other shopping out of the village, too!

    I worry that other main street businesses will also lose out.

    I personnally would like to see the BigWay chain back here.
