Radar replacement: a worthwhile investment
Over the course of the next 10 years a massive radar replacement project will take place across the country. It’s the largest capital project NAV CANADA has ever undertaken at a cost of $159 million. The first of 11 new radars is set to be operational in Hamilton by August 2019 with new sites receiving replacement radars at the rate of one per year, ending in Halifax in 2028.

The danger that laser pointers present to the safe operation of an aircraft is serious. What may appear to be a relatively harmless device can actually be a deadly weapon if used irresponsibly. A laser directed at an aircraft can fill a cockpit with blinding light and puts the pilot, crew, passengers, and people on the ground at risk.
