Ottawa/Carp Airport or Carp Airport, (IATA: YRP, ICAO: CYRP), is located 1.2 nautical miles (2.22 km) south of Carp, Ontario, Canada, a small village that is now part of Ottawa. Carp is the only airport in the Ottawa area where private hangar space is readily available, so it is a popular home base for local general aviation pilots.

Unlike Ottawa/Rockcliffe Airport, Carp has instrument approaches available for bad-weather operation. The airport is located immediately to the south of the Ottawa practice area, making it convenient for flight training, and is close to highway 417.

The airport had been owned by the City of Ottawa until 2005 but is being transferred to a private company, West Capital Developments, who plan to build a residential airpark and industrial park on the airport. History: Carp was originally a military airfield, and participated in the British Commonwealth Air Training Program during World War II.

The outline of the characteristic three-runway triangle is still visible in the shape of the taxiways, but one of the runways has disappeared, and another (04-22) is gravel-covered and listed officially as taxiway C, though it's still used for landing and departing, and is restricted to daylight hours only.

Near to the airport is the largest of the Canadian Cold War Diefenbunkers, a giant long-term fallout shelter for government and military officials that now serves as a museum.

First Air (formerly Bradley Air Services) at one time had its maintenance facility on this airport. Carp is presently the home of Helicopter Air Transport, Westair flight school, Carp Flying Academy and EAA Chapter 245.
