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?
