  1. I am pleased to announce that effective immediately Josh Perry (Josh #2) is appointed Deputy FIR Chief. In addition, Josh #2 will assist Josh Agins - Chief Instructor (Josh #1) with training. Josh #2 brings with him a wealth of information as an Air Canada Pilot and I believe he will be an enormous asset to CZEG. Please join me in welcoming Josh Perry and congratulating him on his new role at CZEG.

  3. Edmonton and Moncton FIRS are jointly hosting the EDMONCTON FALL FLING (Surf ta Turf). The Spring Fling was held on March 21 of this year and was quite the success, our fellow Canadian controllers provided en-route ATC services along the entire route, and the BEEF (TURF) delivery to the Moncton FIR was on time and much appreciated. Its time for the EDMONCTON FALL FLING (Surf ta Turf). We here in Western Canada sure would like to enjoy some fresh seafood to go with our steaks. What better than fresh Nova Scotia, Mussels, Digby Scallops, Atlantic Clams, Cod Filets and Atlantic Lobster. We're soliciting pilots of all skills to load up on the seafood and fly from Halifax into Edmonton. To make your flight more enjoyable we're making arrangements with the Montreal (CZUL), Toronto (CZYZ) and Winnipeg (CZWG) FIRs to help us by providing en route ATC services for the entire event. So please come on out and experience some of the best ATC services VATCAN has to offer with Western Hospitality and Eastern Flair, your sure to have a memorable trip. More information available on the CZEG website including Flight Plan and Charts. https://czeg.ca/events/edmoncton-fall-fling-surf-to-turf/
  4. Welcome to the Peace River Valley, we invite you Fly the Chinook Circuit - the Perfect VFR Experience between 3 airports all spaced at approximately 100 nautical miles. In the real world, ATC Services at Fort St John, Peace River and Grand Prairie consist of advisory services to pilots such as relayed IFR ATC clearances, weather, suggested runways, taxiways and circuit traffic information. Except for the flight clearances, advisory services provided by Flight Service Specialists (FSS) are just that. FSS specialists do not control aircraft; they may offer suggestions; it is the ultimate responsibility of the pilot to take the advice or not. At Fort St John, Grand Prairie and Peace River FSS Advisory Services will continue to be the only ATC service available, which should prove interesting. Pilots and Controllers interested in the procedures and phraseology to expect from FSS Radio should read and understand pages 50 through 56 of the Nav Canada VFR Booklet available here - https://www.navcanada.ca/en/media/publications/vfr phraseology.pdf The area in, around and between the three airports consists of rolling hills, farmland, the magnificent Peace and Smokey river valleys. The VFR flight between either Fort St John and Peace River allows you to follow the meandering Peace River as it snakes its way through farmland and rolling hills. North of Grand Praire. Second and not least the Smokey River flows slowly south between Peace River and Grande Prairie. Look closely, and you see the direct flight paths between the airports forms a triangle. In the middle of that triangle, you'll find one of Alberta's many Oil Patches with a significant number of "NODDING DONKEYS", Pump Jacks or Oil Pumps scattered throughout. You'll find lots of POI to see, experience and explore. In addition to local ATC, we will also have a centre or two online to provide flight following should you require. Keep in mind our controllers will frequently be online at the three airports during non-event times, providing advisory FSS ATC services only. For more information check out our website at https://czeg.ca/events/fly-the-chinook-circuit/
