Coronach/Scobey Border Station Airport (FAA LID: 8U3TC LID: CKK3) is located 8 NM (15 km; 9.2 mi) southeast of Coronach, Saskatchewan, Canada[1] and 13 mi (21 km) north of Scobey, Montana, United States.[2] In the United States, the airport is known by the names Scobey Border Station Airport and East Poplar International Airport.[2] It is owned by the U.S. and Canadian governments.[2]

The runway lies exactly along the Canada-United States border and is adjacent to the border crossing between the two aforementioned towns. Customs may be cleared on either side of the border, but customs officials require two hours' advance notice prior to landing, and landings are allowed only during the border crossing's normal hours of operation.

The airport is classified as an airport of entry by NAV CANADA and is staffed by the Canada Border Services Agency. CBSA officers at this airport currently can handle general aviation aircraft only, with no more than fifteen passengers.[1]

For the 12-month period ending September 9, 2008, the airport had 10 general aviation aircraft operations.[2]
