    In April 2015, take-offs and landings at 114 Canadian airports without air traffic control towers reached a total of 51,453 movements. Six airports, each with more than 2,000 movements, accounted for 33% of the month's activity: Peterborough, Ontario (4,256 movements), Moosonee, Ontario (3,822), Goose Bay, Newfoundland and Labrador (2,385), Red Lake, Ontario (2,136), Comox, British Columbia (2,093), and Muskoka, Ontario (2,076).

    Year over year comparisons were possible for 114 airports. These airports reported a decrease of 1,160 (-2.2%) in total aircraft movements from April 2014. The large drop at Peterborough (-2,384 movements) was sufficient to offset increases at Muskoka (+710), Comox (+581) and Red Lake (+511).
