NAV CANADA, the country’s civil air navigation services provider, is in the process of transitioning Flight Information Centre (FIC) services from its Winnipeg FIC to the Edmonton and London FICs.
A first phase will see the transition of FIC services in Saskatchewan and Nunavut between Winnipeg FIC and Edmonton FIC implemented April 30, 2021, at 0901z.
Pilots and dispatchers in the Prairie and Central regions will continue to receive the same vital information they need, including flight-planning services, in-depth interpretive weather information and en-route flight information, which will be provided by the Edmonton flight information centre (please see contact information below). Air traffic services will not be impacted by this change.
Please note: Edmonton FIC’s contact information and unit identification below as it will change from Winnipeg Radio to Edmonton Radio.
