There are no landing fees at Qualicum for private aircraft. There is however, a donation box on the main apron near the entrance to the terminal building. This is strictly voluntary and all money will be used to offset airport operating expenses and make airport improvements.

If staying overnight, visiting aircraft parking is at the designated tie-downs in the grass area between taxiways Alpha and Echo, off Charlie. Overnight tie-down fees can be left in the donations box. Jet A and 100LL fuel is available on the field - self-serve and payment by credit card.

All pilots, whether visiting or tenants, are strongly urged to follow the noise abatement procedures published in the CFS. Remember, respectful airmen make good neighbours! There are no aircraft movements or engine running between the hours of 10 p.m. and 7 a.m., except by permission from the operator or in an emergency.
