HISTORY OF THE AIRPORT

The Northern Rockies Regional Airport (NRRA) as we know it today was established in 1941 as part of the USAAF Northwest Staging Route, and was used for ferrying and refueling approximately 8000 aircraft on route towards Russia during WWII. After the war, the USAAF transferred the operations of the NRRA to the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1947, with the original site plan of a total of 106 buildings and its entire infrastructure. Consequently, the RCAF not too long after transferred ownership of the airport to Transport Canada, who conducted its operation until the National Air Policy (NAP) came into effect.

 

Since then, the Northern Rockies has taken on sole ownership of the airport and its direction. Today, the NRRA operates with sixteen tenants ranging from fixed and rotary aircraft operations to scheduled and charter passenger services. The BC Forest Service Wildlife Management Branch also continues to maintain a seasonal fire center operation at the airport.
