Goose (Otter Creek) Water Aerodrome (TC LID: CCB5) is located in Terrington Basin at Lake Melville, near Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada and is open from June to November.


There are two airlines that use Otter Creek, but offer only chartered hunting or fishing trips, as well as resource companies to access their mines.[2]

The airport is only in use during the summer to late fall.


There are four piers for aircraft to park along the shore.

Fuel and airport storage (tie-down) is available at the aerodrome.[3]

There is no terminal facility and all other services (food, transportation, medical aid, car rental) are located nearby the airport.[4]

There is no control tower and contact is made with Area Control Centre in Gander Airport.[5]


The aerodrome is reached by Trans Labrador Highway-North West River Road.
