Aerodromes and Airports Policy and Requirements
An aerodrome is any area of land, water (including a frozen surface) or other supporting surface used for aircraft landings or take-offs (legal definition). Transport Canada:
- Only certifies and inspects an aerodrome if it meets certification criteria, such as having scheduled air services.
