About This File
FS2004 Scenery--Fort Resolution Airport (CYFR), Canada. Fort Resolution is on the south side of Great Slave Lake, 75 miles east of Hay River and just west of where the Slave River flows into the lake from Fort Smith. Fort Resolution, the oldest community in the Territories and once a vital link in the fur trade business, is a small town with a population of around 500. It was not included in the original FS2004 or Ultimate Terrain. The airfield is next to the town on the lakeshore. The runway is 4000 feet of gravel with a displaced threshold at the southern (town) end; it is lit and there is PAPI. There are no scheduled flights to Fort Resolution, just occasional charters; the AI includes a stock FS2004 Cessna and a Wasaya Airways PC12. By Roger Wensley.
