Pemberton Regional Airport Authority

The overview committee for the Pemberton Airport underwent several incarnations before being incorporated under the Society Act in March 2007 as the Pemberton Regional Airport Authority (PRAA) .

As an incorporated society, the PRAA is a non-profit organization where any funds or profits must be used only for the purposes of the society itself. Read more about the Pemberton Regional Airport Authority.

Airport Planning

Over recent years, the Village of Pemberton has seen a marked increase of interest in the Pemberton Regional Airport (PRA).

Originally started as an initiative of the Pemberton Flying Club in the 1970s as a base for the club's activities, the Crown subsequently granted the airport land to the Village of Pemberton in 1985, and a plan was put forward by the federal government for navigational aid installation in anticipation of regular Dash 7 service.

The service failed to materialize, but interest in developing and expanding operations at the PRA has continued to be expressed by aviation enthusiasts and businesses throughout the years. Read more about airport planning.
