Fly through Pacific Rim National Park Reserve and experience the vast ocean views and stunning coastline Tofino/Longbeach has to offer. With CYAZ located right next to the iconic Long Beach, this scenery is perfect for any VFR adventurist, or the IFR enthusiast looking for a challenging foggy approach. Tofino/long beach airport was built in 1943 during WWII as RCAF Station Tofino alongside the construction of Radar Hill just north of the airfield. The airfield was used by few squadrons during its service from 1943-1945. In 1955 The airfield was opened again to be used by NORAD in the Pine Tree Line all the way until 1958. Up until 2010, the airport remained very quiet with only a few general aviation hangars. Since 2010 Tofino has gotten many upgrades such as resurfacing runway 11/29 as well as added night lighting. A brand new Terminal and maintenance building was also built to accommodate multiple regional airlines including Pacific Coastal to assist in the large increase of tourism traffic. With many regional flights and increased GA traffic, Tofino is the perfect destination only a short flight away from KSEA, CYVR, or CYYJ.
