Atlantic ferry flights via Goose Bay airport (CYYR).

Goose Bay airport (CYYR), or simply "Goose", is probably the most common departure / entry airport in Canada for North Atlantic ferry flights. The airport has 2 long runways, ILS approaches, and is available 24 hours. There are 2 FBOs where you can get weather, fuel (Jet and 100LL avgas) as well as a ride to a good hotel less than 10 minutes away from the airport.

I usually pick up my survival gear in "Goose" as well.
