About Miramichi Airport

Miramichi Airport, YCH, is located 3.0 km south of Miramichi, New Brunswick, Canada. The runway is 10,006 ft by 150 ft and is maintained year-round. It has a pavement overlay (from 1998), new approach lights and a new taxiway. The airport is the home base of the Department of Natural Resources and Energy Air Tanker Operations, and Forest Protection Limited, who own and operate the air tanker fleet. In addition, a General Electric J85 engine test facility is located at the airport.

The airport is the former site of CFB Chatham, a military air base, which closed in 1996, after military units were moved to other bases. There is one abandoned runway within the airport which is still used for local glider operations.
