File Description:
Baker Lake is the only Nunavut community that is not next to the sea. It is, as you might have guessed, on the shore of Baker Lake and 160 miles west and a bit north of Rankin Inlet on the shore of Hudson Bay (a recent post by Sid and Pete). The Hudson Bay Company opened a trading post there in 1916 and the town slowly developed, though as recently as 1946 the population was still only 32. These days the airfield is the support field for several nearby mines and there are now nearly 1,800 folks in Baker Lake using the stores, schools, churches, hospital, etc. The runway is almost 4,200' of 100' wide gravel and lighted; the alignment is 162T and 342T as this is in northern domestic airspace and bearings are given as 'true" and not "magnetic". Both JETA and 100LL fuel is available. The town is to the northeast of the airfield and is made up of a landclass without autogeneration, as this would mean a bunch of trees that would be, to say the least, unrealistic.
