Temporary Closure

Due to the PA Governor’s stay at home directive, Canyon Aero Flight Operations (instruction and rental) are suspended through the month of April. We plan to reopen as soon as we are permitted and can safely do so. Thank you for your patience during this unusual time. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Warning: ATC Closures

With the coronavirus pandemic; tower approach/departure, and center controllers are as susceptible as everyone else. This has resulted in some delays, closures and rerouting. If you plan on flying IFR or need VFR flight following, it is advisable to determine whether those services will be available along you route and destination.
