Photo Gallery: The first of NAV CANADA’s two CRJ Flight Inspection planes (C-GFIO) was repainted with a clean and modern look that reflects our Company’s new brand colours and logo. The aircraft spent four weeks in Peterborough, Ontario undergoing an extensive painting and refinishing process.
ICYMI: Get an inside look to our new control tower at @OshExecAirport. It has been designed to give controllers a better view of aircraft operations with new technologies to ensure safer operations. https://t.co/0bRSdF2VVa
Au cas où vous l’auriez manqué, jetez un coup d’œil à l’intérieur de notre nouvelle tour de contrôle @aeroportexeOsh. La tour a été conçue pour donner aux contrôleurs une meilleure vue des opérations aériennes. https://t.co/0bRSdF2VVa
@justjp85 @FlyEIA Hi @justjp85 – as @FlyEIA mentioned wind direction and speed are important but traffic demand, runway surface conditions and even aircraft taxi times are all considered. Right now winds are out of the south/southwest so we are arriving on runway 12. Have a good flight.
