Welcome to VATCAN

NTU Expansion Airports

Effective Friday, March 01/13 the National Training Unit (NTU) will utilize designated Training Airports in each of the FIRs:
* CZVR - Victoria (CYYJ)
* CZEG - Yellowknife (CYZF)
* CZWG - St. Andrews (CYAV)
* CZYZ - London (CYXU)
* CZUL - Quebec City (CYQB)
* CZQM - Moncton (CYQM).
NTU Mentors/Instructors can Instruct at these airports, just as they have been doing at YXU.
We may need some volunteers to help set-up TWR Trainer files for these locations.

You can help support VATCAN's future by providing traffic when you see student ATC at any of these NTU airports.
