What is an exception to smoking listed in 401.09 Fire Prevention?

Smoking in an enclosed building or shelter located on an apron where such smoking is not likely to create a fire hazard that could endanger persons or property


How is cruising altitude for direction of flight determined in the Northern and Southern Domestic Airspace?

Northern Domestic Airspace - True Track

Southern Domestic Airspace - Magnetic Track


What is a Flight Information Region? How many is the CDA divided into?

An airspace extending upwards from the surface of the earth, in which flight information service and alerting services are provided. CDA is divided into 8 FIRs


Describe the vertical sections of the CDA

Low Level Airspace - airspace below 18,000 feet ASL

High Level Airspace - airspace from 18,000 feet ASL and above


What is a controlled airspace?

Airspace within which Air Traffic Control service is provided


Define airspace structure

The physical dimensions of the elements into which the airspace is divided, such as Control Zones, Terminal Control Areas, Control Area Extensions and Airways


What are airways? How are they identified?

Controlled corridors of airspace between two stations

Identified with a single letter plus a number(G1 - golf 1, J500 - jet 500)


What are air routes? How are they identified?

Uncontrolled corridors of airspace between two stations

Identified with two letters plus a number(GG1 - golf golf 1, BR4 - bravo romeo 4)


Describe the distances and drift lines of different types of airways


Describe Class A airspace classification

From FL180 up to and including FL600

No VFR Permitted


Describe Class B airspace classification

Above 12,500 to below FL180

VFR permitted but only if you meet certain criteria

Controlled VFR (VFR operating under IFR procedures -except Wx) (Mapping Surveys, etc.)


Describe Class C airspace classification

Is not altitude related

VFR permitted but clearance required and only if you meet certain criteria

None in the Atlantic Region


Describe Class D airspace classification

Is not altitude related

A mix of IFR/VFR traffic is likely

In our region, applies to Control Zones serviced by an ATC tower

Becomes class E if Control Tower closes


Describe Class E airspace classification

Is not altitude related

A mix of IFR/VFR traffic is likely

In our region, normally class E control zone is also a designated MF area

Usually associated with a FSS


Describe Class F airspace classification

Special use airspace (Advisory, Restricted areas)

Limitations are imposed upon aircraft operations that are not a part of activities happening in class F airspace


Describe Class G airspace classification

Uncontrolled airspace

Applies to airspace outside of Control Zones and Terminal Control areas below 2200’ (south of Bathurst)

A mix of IFR/VFR traffic is possible

A - G (Ref: RAC 2.8)


CAR 601.03 Transponder Airspace states that aircraft shall be equipped with a functioning transponder incorporating an automatic pressure reporting device (MODE C) when operating in the following airspace:

Class A, Class B, Class C, Class D, and Class E airspace that is classified as "Transponder Airspace" in the DAH


What is required to fly VFR in Class B airspace?

A/C equipped with proper COMM, NAV, & Transponder Mode C

Continuous listening watch on Radio

Position Reports as required by ATC

A/C operated in VMC at all times.


What sources can you refer to for information on airspace?

VFR Navigation Charts (VNC)

VFR Terminal Area Charts (VTA)

Low Level EnrouteCharts (LO Charts)

Designated Airspace Handbook (DAH TP1820)

Canada’s Airspace Poster (TP6010)




What does 602.01 Reckless or Negligent Operation of Aircraft state?

No person shall operate an aircraft in such a reckless or negligent manner as to endanger or be likely to endanger the life or property of any person

What rules are in place for aircraft crew members regarding alcohol and drug use?

No person shall act as a crew member of an aircraft within twelve hoursafter consuming an alcoholic beverage, while under the influence of alcohol, or while using any drug that impairs the person's faculties in a way that can endanger the aircraft or other crew members


What rules are in place for aircraft passengers regarding alcohol?

Alcohol cannot be consumed by passengers unless served by the aircraft operator. An exception is if there are reasonable grounds to believe serving alcohol to the passenger may put the aircraft at risk


Is an aircraft operator permitted to allow intoxicated (drunk) passengers aboard the aircraft?

Only if the operator believes that the intoxicated person will not pose a risk to the aircraft or other crew

When is smoking aboard an aircraft prohibited, as stated in 602.06 Smoking?

During take off an landing, in the lavatory, and when prohibited by the pilot in command


602.07 Aircraft Operating Limitations states that no person shall operate an aircraft unless it is operated in accordance with the operating limitations. Where are the operating limitations indicated?

In the aircraft flight manual, set out in a approved document (S.O.P), indicated bymarkings or placards


What does 602.08 say about the use of Portable Electronic Devices aboard an aircraft?
