YSH NDB Is Being Turned Off

Effective 25 April 2019 NAV Canada will be turning off the "YSH" NDB, and it will be removed from all aeronautical publications.

NAV CANADA recently completed an Aeronautical Study to determine the requirement for ground-based navigation aids across Canada. The study was sent to Transport Canada for review from a safety perspective in November 2017. As a result of the study, and with Transport Canada’s agreement, it has been determined that the “YSH” NDB services at the Smiths Falls airport are no longer required. Currently, the Smiths Falls airport is serviced by GNSS instrument approach procedures that allow access to the airport, and maintains the level of service required under the Canadian Air Navigation Services Commercialization Act.

A "Notice" detailing the changes will be posted on the NAV CANADA website at Service Notices a minimum of 60 days prior to the 'turn off' date, and will complement an Aeronautical Information Circular that will be published a minimum of 28 days prior to the change.

Please refer to the NAV CANADA website at Navaids Project to stay updated on the changes, monitor progress, and to view the Aeronautical Study.

For further information, please send your inquiries to service@navcanada.ca.

A Busy Time for he Snow Team!
Many thanks to the brave souls who have ventured out this winter to keep our runways and taxiways clear. Some of these folks have been out up to fourteen times the past month! A job well done in the unbelievably nasty weather!

Pictured here are Wayne Kerr in the plow truck, Ken Read in the 4x4 plow, and Derek Butler in the Snowblower.

3 PPL’s and a Plan
This past June three of our younger club members, Chris McKenney, Sonia Hildesheim, and Steph Theiler had the unbelievable opportunity to live out their PPL dreams, an across Canada tour! The three met this year in their Aviation Management program at Algonquin College, and since then have spent most days with their heads in the clouds dreaming about the fun things they could do with a plane and their licenses. Read more about their adventure after weeks of planning, and incredible support from the instructors and the flying club!
