It looks like Pickering might be getting an airport after all. According to the website, pickeringairpark.com, a group of business owners and community members, who currently use Buttonville and the Island Airport in Toronto, are looking to build and operate a private facility in north Pickering. The group is looking to build a 4,000 foot runway with 24 hour access. Oshawa Councillor Bruce Wood says this is a wake-up call for the city to get moving on expansion plans here at the Oshawa Airport. Oshawa is currently in the process of expansion at the airport with Ornge setting up an air ambulance station, Seneca College possibly moving its flight training school here and a proposed extension of the main runway. Wood says businesses currently using Buttonville or Toronto’s Island Airport, can find everything they need, right here at the Oshawa Airport. However, the group pitching the new airport however, state on their website that Oshawa’s airport would not be able to handle the increased demands once Buttonville closes. The group is already accepting deposit cheques for limited partnership units.
