File Description:
Nanisivik is an airfield in the north of Baffin Island, 470 miles north of the Arctic circle. It was built to service a zinc and lead mine that was opened in 1976 as Canada's first Arctic mine, now closed and dismantled. The deep water Strathcona Sound has been ear-marked by the Canadian government for development as a naval base, so I have left the large ore storage shed and the jetty in place. The airfield is at 2,106 feet on the top of the Borden Peninsula hills with a lighted 6,400 feet of 150 feet wide gravel runway runway aligned 11/29. There is a terminal and other maintenance buildings, and First Air have a building there from when the mine generated a lot of traffic and jets were used. Arctic Bay is a village 11 miles west of Nanisivik airfield with a population of around 690 which also uses the Nanisivik airfield. There is another gravel strip much closer to the village that is called Arctic Bay CJX7, but this is smaller with only 1,500' of 50' wide gravel and has no facilities of any sort. The village is partly dependent on visiting sports hunters and other limited tourist visits. At almost 73 degrees north the average year will have only four or even three months where the average high is above freezing. The buildings on the field have been modelled specifically for this scenery, and as in real life there is only JetA available. The AI visiting aircraft are a Kenn Borek Twin Otter and a First Air 42-300. As Nanisivik is in the "Northern Domestic Airspace" the runway is signed in "true" bearings and not magnetic as magnetic compasses become unreliable close to the magnetic pole.
