Today is Part 4 in a new series called Armchair Tourism in Carleton Place. Did you know we have airports in the area?
When I was a child my father used to take us to the local Cowansville, Quebec airport and when we went to visit my Mother in the hospital in Montreal he would bring us to the Dorval airport. We all used to love watching the planes. Did you know we have an airport in Carleton Place?

Fly with me to the moon
Let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like at the Russ Beach- the Smiths Falls/ Montague airport which is just down the road.
This airport is run by volunteers (mostly pilots) –and Smiths Falls-Montague Airport Commission is entrusted to the control and management of the landing grounds at the Russ Beach Smiths Falls/Montague Airport and a great place to watch some planes take off with the family.
There is a small aviation museum where you can see displays and glance at some great reference books.
Did you now Search and Rescue also drops in and says hi and does some training at the airport?
This is one of the first parachutes!
Our Carleton Place Sky Pilots Carole and Bill Flint working hard along with many other volunteers to make sure the airport is viable and fully operational.
Look what it takes to keep the airport open in the winter.
The Russ Beach Airport is also home to Car Show and Top Speed Runway Challenge-Race the Runway. If you have never been to this–better come on down August 13th–it’s fun for the whole family! Mark the date– August 13th!
