    It's a classic "make sure you check your time zones" OTS in Winnipeg, as Mike Ignagni is off to fight for his C1 rating!

     

    Come fly in on the evening of the 22nd (which just so happens to be the morning of the 23rd for our friends on the other side of the Atlantic) and help him earn that promotion!

    It's the big OTS for James Norris - he's going for his C1 rating!

     

    Come fly anywhere Winnipeg has to offer in our airspace - from major airports like Winnipeg and Saskatoon to the small fields you've never heard of until you accidentally entered the wrong letter on your airport code in SimBrief.

     

    Good luck, James!

  6. Dean's legacy of running Toronto is a long one and a very productive one.

     

    Wishing nothing but the best in whatever may be next, friend!

    IT'S HAPPENING AGAIN!

     

    CYVR is sending CYWG some pilots eagerly looking for cold, snow and ice! (Why!?) Both airports and ZVR/ZEG/ZWG centers will be online to direct them into CYWG from 2100z-0100z on Saturday, 13 Feb 2021 (3-7pm Central).

     

    Preferred route if you're going to fly: ADSIX KESTA YDC J500 YXC MEDAK YYN J500 VLR AMBIL2

     

    See you all there!

  8. Hi, it seems that you converted UTC time to EST as it would be in the summer (4hrs diff, it should be 5hrs diff now). Kindly please confirm the time of the event. Thanks!

     

    Hi Piotr! This has been fixed now - the Eastern time is correct, the Zulu time has been fixed.

    It's time for another exam in Winter-peg - this time, James Norris is on a mission to earn his S3 rating. Bring your IFR and VFR traffic to Winnipeg's airports (CYWG, CYAV, CYPG and more) on the 17th and help James work for his promotion!

    It's time to head west into Canada's prairies, and to the city of Regina - home to a truly outstanding Canadian meme (located for your viewing convenience at

    ), as well as one International Airport (CYQR)!

     

    Bring your IFR and VFR as we'll be fully staffed from 2200z until 0000z on Saturday the 16th!
