File Description:
Tuktoyaktuk is on the northern coast of Canada, 70 miles north of Inuvik and to the east of the Mackenzie River delta. It has a population of around 900 and because of its natural harbour is a centre for oil exploration activity on the surrounding land and on the Beaufort Sea, with sizeable but now under-used yards dating back to the peak of activity in the late 1970's. On land work is restricted to the winter half of the year, as only the freeze-up makes it possible to move on land with heavy equipment, and during the winter further supples are driven over an ice road from Inuvik up to Tuk. The ice-free summer months are used for floating equipment from Yuk along the coast on barges and then up the rivers to inland sites in preparation for the winter activity. Before the oil there was a DEW line station here, and there is still an automated station on the same site and included here, as are the yards. The airfield is on the coast close to the town and the yards, at 15' ASL. The gravel runway 09/27 is 5,000' feet long and 150' wide; both thresholds are displaced by 200', but of course there are no markings on the gravel. The large apron is on the north side at the centre of the runway and is large enough to accomodate several large planes. Inuvik revised should be installed first, now Tuk, then last of the three Sachs Harbour which has AI for Aklak Airlines flights (operated by Kenn Borek) for all three airfields. There is a separate AI file included here, featuring freight delivery by Buffalo Airways and small planes.
