File Description:
Peawanuck is on the bank of the Winisk River, 23 miles upstream from where the river empties into the Hudson Bay just west of James Bay. It has a population of around 240, and was established in 1986 when the original settlement (Winisk) at the mouth of the river was destroyed by a flood. The airport is on a bluff in a corner of the river at 171 feet ASL, with a gravel runway just over 3,500 feet long and aligned 11-29. There is only basic runway lighting, with no ILS, VASI, or PAPI; there is also no apron lighting, or fuel. Service is provided by Air Creebec with connector flights to Moosonee and Timmins, and on to Montreal. A search of their timetable did not provide any information regarding timings but I made the AI flight from Timmins a daily one; it is probably only once or twice a week. There is also a daily private Cessna from Moosonee. Winisk, at the mouth of the river, has another gravel runway which is over 6,000 feet long. There is also a large hangar and to the north the remaining buildings and fuel tanks etc of a Radar Control site which was closed in 1965 after only 7 years of use.
