CYYC New Runway (17L-35R)

In Information by Michael Shamash

CYYC – The Calgary International Airport finished construction of a new 14,000 ft runway in 2014. Runway 17L-35R is currently the longest runway in Canada.

Default FSX and P3D do not include this new runway. We highly recommend to either install scenery (here) or simply update the AFCAD files (here).


Since the inception of the new runway, all traffic departing to the East will depart from the new runway 17L-35R (the Eastern runway), winds permitting. Similarly, all traffic arriving from the East will arrive on the new runway 17L-35R, winds permitting.  Pilots that don’t have scenery for the new runway must advise ATC in due time for traffic management and sequencing.
