Question about "H" Suffix on runway numbers

Post by bcrosby »

This might be the wrong forum to post, let me know if thats the case.

I came across an entry in the CFS for CYAW. The runway numbers are as follows:

34H/16H
10H/28H

What does the "H" mean? Is that for helicopter traffic only?

Thanks.Image

I thought it denoted a "hard surface". It's been a few years since I've seen a CFS though so don't quote me.

According to the CAP, the runways are used as helicopter landing areas, so that would be my guess...?

Shearwater is a helicopter only airport.

Should have looked at the CAP. The 1250 footer might be interesting without a brisk wind, hard surface or not... :lol:
