November 12, 2018 A Special Moncton Monday that we won't forget
CZQM members celebrated a special Moncton Monday that was dedicated to those who lost their lives for our freedom. Pilots joined our controllers for a flight at Gander CYQX. Gander’s airport was the largest on the planet in 1940 and played a crucial role in the ferrying of aircraft from North America to Britain during the Second World War. Canadian, American, and British troops all served at Gander.

November 7, 2018 WorldFlight crosses through CZQM
CZQM was honored to participate in WorldFlight again this year which is a “virtual” round the world flight to raise money for the Australian Royal Flying Doctor Service. The concept of a virtual, round the world flight for charity was started by a team in the United Kingdom and has spawned an annual event with participants all over the globe.

The World flight teams departed Thule AFB and stopped in Goose bay for an hour before departing to Ottawa. CZQM provided their own ATC services to approximately 30 aircraft and did not require any support from the WorldFlight Controller Support Team.

Big shout out to Jim Allan, Steve Osterbomber, Mark Walsh, Michael McConnell and Jagard Strong for ensuring CZQM was fully staffed for the event. This event took place during mid afternoon on a weekday which is always challenging to staff.
