Abbotsford International AIRPORT

CHINOOK HELICOPTER HANGAR

Abbotsford BC V2T 6H5

 

Car parking will be available at the hangar, and and overflow lot will be set up in the grass just before the hangar as you approach Rotor Dr. on Threshold Dr. Please look for volunteers directing and see below for a map - red arrows direct you towards PrepAIR parking areas. Please DO NOT park in any of the CONAIR parking areas around their hangar (to the south of the Chinook Hangar on bottom edge of map) - they have an event starting at 1600 on April 6th shortly after PrepAIR ends, and need their space for their attendees. Thank you.
