The Morden Airport does not have a control tower or extremely busy air traffic. This enables the student pilot to spend more time in the air flying, instead of waiting on the ground waiting for take-off or taxi clearances. However, the Morden Airport is conveniently located within close flying distance to larger and busier controlled airspace. This provides student pilots an excellent opportunity to learn important controlled airspace procedures as they progress in their flight training.
