June 20, 2022 New FSS Positions

As we introduce the FSS position to CYDF, CYYG and CYSJ in the CZQM/CZQX FIR, The FIR Staff wants pilots to know the minimum expectation from pilots operating within the FSS Control Zone (CZ). There are some major differences when operating within the MF Class E CZ than a Class D/C Controlled zone so please ensure you know what is expected. It is also important to understand which aircraft has the right of way.

New FSS callsigns/positions:
CYDF_F_TWR - Deer Lake Radio
CYYG_F_TWR - Charlettown Radio
CYSJ_F_TWR - Saint John Radio

Full FSS SOP can be found here.

Happy Flying!
