e-flight bags in Canada

I got this reply to a query regarding digital flight resources for Canada. Looks hopeful....

Begin forwarded message:

NAV CANADA is working towards modernizing Canadian Aeronautical publications to make them available in electronic format for flight planning and navigational use, where permitted by Federal regulations. 

 

While all products are currently available in print format for official planning and navigational use through our call centre, as well as our new online store (http://products.navcanada.ca/), some are also available in electronic format with certain limitations on use. 

 

We understand that our customers are anxious to access additional Canadian aeronautical products electronically.  Throughout this summer, we anticipate expanding some of these products further in download format (print your own page) from our online store starting with the Canadian Flight Supplement and the Canada Air Pilot in PDF format.  We will also be entering into agreements with various suppliers of aviation software applications for use with certain Portable Electronic Devices such as the iPad, iPhone and –readers. We will communicate specific details through our web site.

 

I hope this information is helpful. Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions.

More views from my magic chair...



The government has been closing lighthouses over the past several years, akin to the way they've been closing and consolidating flight services. I guess the lights are automated somehow, similar to the way many weather observation posts now are.

Flying Chairs




Flying over the Salish Sea wondering at the times I live in... I'm sitting in a chair IN THE SKY! Watching the world go by. Absolutely awesome.
