A property for sale in Foothills County comes with its own runway.

With a price tag of just under $4 million, the 158-acre property southeast of High River boasts a four-bedroom home and a 1,370-metre long paved runway.

Known as the AJ Flying Ranch, the property was the site of an annual fly-in that began in 1999 and ran for over a decade. In 2009, it was renamed the Joe English Memorial Fly-in in honour of the late Second World War veteran pilot who played a major role in getting the event started.

The property's listing says the runway can accommodate large private aircraft or corporate jets and is registered with NAV Canada.

“This property is very well priced for those looking for a home-based, private runway of this magnitude,” reads the listing. 

Along with the runway, there is room for multiple aircraft in a 4,200-square-foot hangar. 

The house, at over 5,000 square feet, has four bedrooms, five bathrooms and two recently renovated kitchens. 

Other amenities of the two-storey home, built in 1980, include two fireplaces and a heated garage.

Prairie peace and quiet, and magnificent views, are other features of the property, according to the listing. 

“This home and land offer absolute tranquility, outstanding views of the majestic Rocky Mountains, stunning sunrises and some of the most beautiful sunsets that Canada has to offer.”
