If you were not looking for it, you would miss it.
The Hawkesbury East Airport sits between County Road 17 and the Ottawa River, just a few kilometres east of the town from which it takes its name. From the road, it looks like private land. There’s a mailbox serving a wooden, ranch-style home with a red roof and what look like a pair of outbuildings. A large billboard advertises a nearby campground. A small sign tacked to an unused billboard frame is the only clue to the land’s true purpose, but you’d be forgiven if you missed it.
