NAV CANADA to Perform Routine Flight Checks at Billy Bishop Airport on Monday, November 29

Toronto (November 26, 2021) – On Monday, November 29, between 10:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., NAV CANADA flight inspections will take place at Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport (YTZ). NAV CANADA undertakes routine flight inspections two to three times per year at more than 130 airports in Canada, including Billy Bishop Airport.
Flight inspections support safe operations at the airport by ensuring navigational aids are calibrated and functioning optimally and by certifying instrument procedures used by pilots. NAV CANADA currently has two Canadair Regional Jet (CRJ-100) aircraft for conducting these routine flight inspections across Canada.
The CRJ-100 will neither land nor take-off from the Billy Bishop Airport runway, as this is not required for flight checks. The aircraft will undertake certain procedures in Billy Bishop Airport’s airspace, but will maintain compliance with the 1983 Tripartite Agreement, which restricts what type of aircraft can land/take-off at Billy Bishop Airport.
The first flight check with the CRJ-100 at Billy Bishop Airport took place on June 6, 2019.
