Gander International Airport
The Gander International Airport Authority (GIAA) received a call near 1230 pm on Wednesday, December 13 that a Pilatus PC-12 aircraft was in distress during a flight from Moncton to St. John’s, with the nose gear stuck in a retracted position. The weather in St. John’s was challenging so the decision was made to attempt landing at Gander. The pilot was the only occupant of the aircraft.

Emergency responders from the airport and community were positioned while the aircraft burned off fuel and attempted a touch and go with hopes the nose gear would retract. When that attempt was unsuccessful, the pilot attempted final approach at 130 pm on Runway 13 with a successful nose wheel up landing. The pilot walked away from the aircraft under his own power while the aircraft sustained minor damage.

Transportation Safety Board has been contacted. The aircraft has been removed. The runway will be fully reinstated shortly.

All arrivals and departures at the airport are proceeding as per normal.

Gander International Airport - Folks, while we appreciate the kind words, the first responders only did what they are supposed to do, and did it well. The pilot demonstrated an astonishing feat of airmanship under duress. Those who know aviation will understand this landing was executed with incredible poise and precision. We are all very grateful for the outcome.

Question: I saw a post you had on social media that showed where airport employees live and was surprised with the amount of people who commute from out of town, especially the number from Gander Bay. Is there any reason? – Eric, by email

Prez Says: Thanks, Eric. At last count, almost half our employees reside outside of the Town of Gander. We hire for aptitude. In the case of two equally qualified candidates, attitude generally prevails. Where someone calls home doesn’t matter to us as an employer and we have had staff commute from great distances to work – some as far as Charlottetown in the park.

We currently have eight staff on the payroll from the Gander Bay area. I don’t know where it comes from, maybe there is a traditional gravitation toward airport work in Gander Bay. Perhaps because it’s a smaller, tight-knit community that our staff encourage others to apply here. Anyway, our staff from there are resourceful, multi-talented and natural problem solvers. They also seem to share that old school rural Newfoundland love for a solid day’s work. I don’t think you can generalize about people based on where they are from, but I guess we have that many team members from Gander Bay because there’s a good talent pool there who happened to apply. We once had a lot of employees from Gambo; it might just be a generational thing.

No mistake, we have outstanding employees from Gander, a great group from Appleton and Glenwood and other key leaders from the Lewisporte area. It’s a top team, regardless of where they call home. I’m fond of saying we attract the best talent Central Newfoundland has to offer. By the way, it’s not just the airport authority – there are plenty of other companies and agencies at the airport that draw staff from across the region.

Gander International Airport is a regional asset, run by the people of Central Newfoundland for the benefit of people of Central Newfoundland. I think it’s great that we are a regional employer. I honestly don’t care if our staff are from Aspen Cove or Atlantis, so long as they bring their best to work each day. Thanks for the question!

Today is the last day of work for our long-serving electrician Keith Elliott. Keith had a distinguished 35 year career with Gander International Airport. He cared deeply about his job, the airport and the people around him. Whether you were an employer, a teammate, a neighbor or a friend in need, he'd never see you stuck. A dependable, high performing member of the airport team and an even better person. We wish you all the best in retirement, Keith, and hope you and Betti fill your days with the things you love best.

A big thanks to all participants, volunteers and sponsors who helped us raise funds for the Janeway Foundation. Ethan and Olivia were the fastest, but everyone won by contributing to the province's only pediatric hospital. Thanks, everyone!

Our 3rd annual Run the Runway for the Janeway goes at 10 am tomorrow.

Here’s the important info:

• The muster point is at the airport maintenance garage, follow the signs to parking
• You can run or walk, $15 for students and walkers, $25 for adult runners – each and every cent going to the Janeway Foundation
• Please arrive a little early to register, get your racing bib and stretch
• There is roadwork on James Blvd which may cause slight delays
• Forecast is mainly sunny and 15 degrees – a welcome change after last year’s icy driving rain left participants quasi-hypothermic
• It’s a fun run for charity, meaning this is not a chip-timed event and you don’t get an Olympic berth for “winning”
• A number of people have asked about whether young children can accommodate them in a stroller or wagon. Of course! Participation age limits are for official runners/walkers. All we would ask is that your child remain supervised and you maintain normal pace.
• Last year some of the runners were blazing fast. Be warned that if any runner exceeds certain speeds, they may be classified as a jet and be subject to landing fees.
• Remember: you can run on a road every day, but run on a runway only a day a year – while raising funds for the Janeway.

We look forward to seeing you tomorrow. 🏃‍♂️🛬

We are encouraging travelers and patrons to leave a little extra time to arrive at the airport as it commences roadwork tomorrow.

Repaving of including James Boulevard, the primary entry to the airport, as well as Washington Avenue, Power Street and Dobbin Drive will be undertaken over the next two weeks.

All roads will remain open and we are taking steps to ensure the flow of traffic. However, periodic delays should be expected. We are encouraging travelers, airport patrons and workers to allow an extra 15 minutes traveling to and from the airport during construction.

We thank everyone for their patience and understanding.
