Rockton Airport

Rockton Aerodrome, (TC LID: CPT3), is located in Flamborough, Ontario 1.5 nautical miles (2.8 km; 1.7 mi) west of Rockton, Ontario, Canada.

The registered aerodrome is owned and operated by the SOSA Gliding Club as a private airfield. Prior permission is required to fly in (except for gliders).

Facilities include two hangars, a workshop, clubhouse and campground for members.

There are three turf runways at the Rockton Aerodrome 36/18, 03/21, 10/28.

In the spring the runways are quite soft and it is not recommended that powered aircraft attempt landing without first speaking with someone on the ground.

In the winter, no runway maintenance is done and the runways are unusable.

Powered aircraft fly RIGHT hand circuits and gliders fly LEFT hand circuits to all runways.

Rockton is a busy aerodrome with around 14,000 aircraft movements per year. The majority of these taking place on weekends from May through September. During daylight hours on summer weekends, it is not unusual to have 10-20 gliders within 5 miles of the airport so a good lookout is required while flying near the Rockton Aerodrome.

SOSA Gliding Club is a non-profit corporation run strictly by volunteer members. SOSA offers basic flight training to those who wish to become licensed glider pilots, as well as aerobatic training and Cross-country training to licensed glider pilots.

SOSA owns a fleet of 11 gliders and 4 towplanes. Basic and Aerobatic training is conducted in 3 Schleicher ASK 21 gliders and an SZD 50-3 Puchacz.
