Small terrestrial airports have been found to be essential and indispensable for provision of personnel, fresh foods, and relatively small lightweight construction supplies for remote major projects within Canada. There has also been an increasing interest expressed by officials and professionals of the writer's acquaintance in recognizing an increasing need of inhabitants of these remote areas for air transportation. Though of far less complexity than large air transport facilities, certain principles of planning and design are considered as indispensable in the successful completion of even the least sophisticated facility. A brief summary of a planning procedure for the fulfillment of these technological requirements is described.
