Thank you for checking out our website. Our webmaster has done a tremendous job updating and maintaining this site so that you can find the information that you need to fly in and out of the Moncton-Gander Domestic airspace easily.
Once you are flying in our airspace, you will find friendly, knowledgeable controllers who are more than willing to help you out. Our controllers go through hours and hours of training to try and learn the proper procedures to keep it as real to real world as possible taking into account that some pilots may be beginners while others are seasoned professionals. All are treated with the same courtesy and respect.
Atlantic Canada is the gateway to North America with nearly all the aircraft flying from Europe passing through our airspace. We appreciate the traffic and realize that we are probably your first contact in a few hours as you were probably flying in oceanic airspace without ATC communication.
On the flip side, as your last radar service before you head over the ocean, we are more than happy to assist you with your oceanic clearance and also answer any questions you may have regarding oceanic procedures. Don’t be afraid to ask, please.
If you plan on flying local, Halifax (CYHZ) is always an interesting airport because it is often quite foggy with visibility to a minimum. Perhaps St. John's (CYYT) is more your cup of tea with awesome scenery coming in from over water on runway 11 or 29.
If there is information that you would like to see on our website, please don’t hesitate to contact our webmaster with your suggestions or concerns. Once more thank you for your interest, please come back again soon.
