File Description:
Fort Simpson Island is the fifth in a series of airfields that follow (approximately) in a southward direction the Mackenzie River. At the far northern end of the river there is Tuktoyaktuk, then Inuvik, Fort McPherson, Fort Good Hope, Deline, and then Wrigley, all posted. Fort Simpson Island is at 405 feet asl and on the west bank of the the Mackenzie, around 110 miles south of Wrigley at the junction of the Mackenzie and the Liard rivers. The town of Fort Simpson is on an island, and has a population of 1,250 or so folks. The Hudson Bay trading post was established here in 1822. The airport is right next to the town, and has 3,000 feet of gravel runway, though with a displaced threshold of 1,000 feet at each end (unmarked, on gravel) this is effectively 2,000 feet for landing. The Canada Flight Supplement lists the runway as being 100 feet wide; the gravel is definitely far less and the 100 refers to the width in the winter when you are landing on snow and don't care if there is gravel or grass underneath. There are no scheduled flights as these go to the nearby Fort Simpson CYFS. There is a mandatory radio frequency which is for both CYFS and CET4 and in this case I have set the "tower" to "manned" so you will report position and obey instructions. Runway 13 has right hand circuits. I have modified the Ultimate Terrain route for the Mackenzie Highway so that it remains on the west side of the river and does not wander randomly from one side to the other north of Fort Simpson.
