Welcome to Stephenville Airport
Stephenville Airport (YJT), boasts one of the best landing strips in Atlantic Canada, and certainly the best in Newfoundland and Labrador.
The American government studied the entire Atlantic region to build the largest American Airforce base located outside of the U.S.A.. After careful consideration, it chose Stephenville as its location. This was due to its fog-free conditions, with overall weather conditions rated as the best in Atlantic Canada, not to mention aviation qualities that surpassed all other Atlantic regions.
