NAV CANADA supports flight planning with aviation weather, aeronautical information, and online flight planning.
Aviation weather information is available from our Aviation Weather Web Site (AWWS); or one of our Flight Information Centres. The AWWS provides aviation weather, NOTAM information and electronic flight-plan filing for domestic flights. Flight Information Centres provide pilots with interpretive weather briefings, as well as other advisory services, for their planned route.
To contact a Flight Information Centre:
Within Canada, call 1-866-WX-BRIEF.
In Canada and the US, call the applicable FIC at the numbers listed below.
Collaborative Flight Planning System
Pilots can file, amend, delay or cancel flight plans using our on-line Collaborative Flight Plan System (CFPS). Changes made by customers or air traffic services to a CFPS-filed flight plan are automatically updated on a customer’s account as well as on the NAV CANADA system. This electronic flight plan form reduces the need for manual flight plan verification and automatically flags those that do not meet standard parameters.
The CFPS supports visual flight rules (VFR) flight plans, user updates to VFR flight plans, instrument flight rules (IFR) flight plans and updates to IFR flight plans. Future upgrades will support the integration of weather, NOTAM and aeronautical information from the Aviation Weather Web Site (AWWS).
Pilots can access additional information for their planned route by using the links to NOTAMs, Aeronautical Information (AIP Canada), RCO Maps and announcements. Pilots should also review the most current Aeronautical Publications for up-to-date aerodrome and regional information. For post flight reports, click here.
