Montréal/Mascouche Airport, (TC LID: CSK3), is a small, general aviation airport located 1.5 NM (2.8 km; 1.7 mi) southeast of Mascouche and approximately 20 km (12 mi) northeast of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It is reached by Autoroute 640 at exit 44. The runway is parallel to Autoroute 640.
The mandatory frequency for this airport is 122.35 MHz.
The Mascouche airport is the largest "regional airport" in the province of Quebec, in terms of air traffic. It is located close to the Legardeur regional hospital and could be used for medical evacuations in the future. The airport regroups 30 buildings, 15 related SMEs (including Cargair Inc.) and sustains 75 full-time jobs. More than a hundred small planes are stationed there year-round.
There has been talks of closing down (or to privatize) the airport during the last decade, for various reasons: the land lots are well-located and are zoned industrial, the city is unwilling to invest in the airport, and the airport couldn't get funds from the government to build a control tower and to expand the runway's length. To counter the closure of the airport, users have founded a group (Mascouche Airport Owners and Pilots Association MAOPA). With more than 125 members, this dynamic group fights hard to keep the airport open, organizing many activities to stimulate the interest of the population about the airport.
