File Description:
Fort Simpson is the sixth in a series of airfields that follow (approximately) in a southward direction the Mackenzie River. At the far northern end of the river is Tuktoyaktuk, then Inuvik, Fort McPherson, Fort Good Hope, Deline, Wrigley, and Fort Simpson Island, all posted. Fort Simpson is at 555 feet asl and on the west bank of the the Liard River, close to Fort Simpson Island and where the Liard and the Mackenzie join up. 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 new(er) Fort Simpson airport is just over seven miles south of the town, and has 6,000 feet of asphalt runway. It may be from the WW2 time, as it seems there was originally a second runway which has now totally disappeared, There are scheduled flights by First Air and Air Tindi, plus I have added a Buffalo DC3 and GA. 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. There is fuel available. I have added the ferry at the crossing of the Liard River just south of the field.
