Background

The Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District (ACRD) operates this facility which was built by the Department of National Defense during the Second World War to protect the west coast of Canada. Now it is utilized to access various points in the Pacific Northwest for tourism, private use, military / search and rescue operations, flight training, charter and commercial operations, as well as businesses use. The spectrum of possible uses is very broad as YAZ is able to accommodate aircraft of many sizes.

As it is a service of the ACRD, YAZ operations and maintenance are funded through taxation from the District's of Tofino and Ucluelet and the Long Beach Electoral Area C. Income is also generated through land leases and landing fees and further opportunities to generate revenue and improve services are being explored. The ACRD has also undertaken a land-use plan. Bylaw P1282 and Bylaw P1283.

All three runways are approximately 1,500 metres long and 30 metres wide. Instrumental Flight Rules (IFR) approaches are available using GPS (Geographic Positioning System). CYAZ was certified for night operations by Transport Canada in January 2017. A LED, Medium Intensity Runway Lighting system has been installed on the following surfaces, primary runway 11-29, Taxiway H and Apron III. Aerodrome lighting can be activated with a Type K ARCAL system on 123.25 (MF) for a 15-minute duration. Four box Precision Approach Path Indicators (PAPI) units and Runway End Identifier Lights (REILS) are also located on runway 11 and 29 approaches. For more information, refer to the 2007 CYAZ Long Beach Airport Land-Use Plan.
