To ensure the integrity of aeronautical information and data (AI/D) is maintained from origination to distribution, NAV CANADA is formalizing the provision of AI/D. Corrupt, erroneous, late or missing aeronautical information and data can lead to potential safety risks.
The following mechanisms are part of the global transition to more dynamic, integrated, immediate and accessible data-centred Aeronautical Information Management (AIM):
Direct all aeronautical data submissions and questions to NAV CANADA AIM Data Collection.
NOTAM Entry System (NES)
Reporting authorities can upload Aircraft Movement Surface Condition Reports (AMSCR) directly to the NAV CANADA system using the NES web application.
This information is immediately available to customers on the Collaborative Flight Planning System (CFPS) and Aeronautical Fixed Telecommunications Network (AFTN) as an RSC NOTAM. Authorities with an automated reporting system can benefit from the direct web service that links their system directly with the NAV CANADA system.
PDF AMSCR forms have been updated as of August 12, 2021 to reflect the new Runway Surface Condition (RSC) NOTAM format. These forms are now managed and provided by Transport Canada. For access to the new forms, please contact Transport Canada: TC.FlightStandards-Normsvol.TC@tc.gc.ca.
Aerodromes may access the services of contractors to conduct specific work related to instrument flight procedures. NAV CANADA collectively refers to instrument design contractors as External Design Organizations (EDOs). EDOs register with NAV CANADA and have submission requirements allowing NAV CANADA to review and publish their submitted designs to ensure accuracy and compliance to regulations and instrument procedure design criteria.
Instrument Procedure Design Submission Overview for Aerodromes provides an overview for aerodromes of the process and requirements for submission of instrument procedures to NAV CANADA for review and publishing.
