Incident at KUGAARUK NU (CYBB) (Incursion - runway - pedestrian)


2003-04-09: Two children were observed walking on the approach area to Runway 05 at Kugaaruk. Hamlet personnel retrieved the children and advised them to stay away from the airport area.
2003-04-10: UPDATE Aerodrome Safety reported that First Air is hauling fuel around the clock from Kugluktuk (Coopermine) to Kugaaruk (Pelly Bay). This extra air traffic has sparked interest from the community, consequently there is more pedestrian movement around the airport property. Aerodrome Safety has suggested to the CARS operator that the local school as well as the TV outlet in town advise students and adults about the hazards in and around airports. Perhaps a poster awareness program for the children about the airport and its importance to the community would be in order.
