North Battleford Airport, (IATA: YQWICAO: CYQW), is located 1.5 nautical miles (2.8 km; 1.7 mi) east of North Battleford, Saskatchewan, Canada. The airport was previously known as North Battleford (Cameron McIntosh) and was named after Cameron Ross McIntosh, and before that the airport was the site of RCAF Station North Battleford. The airport was transferred from Transport Canada to the City of North Battleford on January 1, 1997.[4]

The North Battleford Gliding Centre, a Royal Canadian Air Cadet gliding centre, stores its gliders outside in permanent tie downs, and has office space in a trailer. The gliding centre conducts winch and air-tow operations in both the spring and the fall. The gliding centre currently operates two gliders, Number 2 (C-GCLS) and Number 10 (C-GRFQ); one winch, and one Bellanca Scout Towplane #5 (C-GBAZ).

In April 2010 a contract was awarded for renovations to the air terminal building.[5]
