Canadian aeronautical charts
NAV Canada offers aeronautical charts, unfortunately you have to pay to obtain them. Do you think you could set up a fund that could be used for the regular acquisition of Canadian aeronautical charts for posting on SkyVector? Enroute charts are CAD 6 each, while sectional and terminal-area charts are CAD 16.50 each. The thing is, there are 52 sectional charts for Canadian airspace, while there are only 6 TACs.
Cost is not the issue
I have written and called NavCanada many times asking for permission to scan an publish their charts online, under a paying licensing agreement. Each time their response has been, "Not now, maybe later" If you're a Canadian Citizen, perhaps you could write your lawmakers asking them to consider the safety benefits of easy access to accurate charts.
I e-mailed NAV CANADA
I e-mailed NAV CANADA regarding this issue, and they told me they were digitizing all of their VFR charts. Once that's done, they said they'd be willing to work with so-called "EFB companies".
That's great news. I often
That's great news. I often fly from the US to Canada and that would be my number 1 feature. Jody
Canadian delays unacceptable
As a Canadian I find it ridiculous that Canada has taken so long to digitize their charts. I work at a job that relies on digital mapping and we have been frustrated by the delays. All Canadian pilots, please voice you concern to NavCanada.... phone: 1-866-731-PUBS (7827) or email: aeropubs@navcanada.ca For good measure you might want to info Transport Canada as well... email: Questions@tc.gc.ca phone: 613-990-2309 fax: 613-954-4731 / 613-998-8620 Mailing Address: Transport Canada 330 Sparks Street Ottawa, ON K1A 0N5
My letter to NavCanada
I am writing to inquire as to when NavCanada plans to provide digitized aeronautical charts and approach plates? The US has been providing American Terminal, Sectional, WAC, Lo and Hi charts for some time now. These charts are being well utilized by graphical mapping services which can overlay weather and numerous other features. A great example of this is http://skyvector.com Other US websites are providing access to airfield approach plates and diagrams. An example can be found here: http://www.airnav.com/airport/KPAE Digitizing Canadian charts and plates would greatly enhance flight planning, improve safety, and increase situational awareness for pilots over traditional paper maps.

Nav Canada Response to "My letter to NavCanada"
Hello, AEROPUBS is currently in the process of implementing an online shopping function for all of our Aeronautical publications. We are implementing this in 2 phases. Phase 1: Allowing customers to purchase our publications in their current format which is paper or CD. We anticipate this to be up and running by late summer 2010. Phase 2: Allowing customers to download the publications in electronic format directly from our website. Customers will be able to download either whole documents or pages according to their needs. We anticipate this part of the project to be completed by early 2011. There are a few technical issues that must be rectified to ensure that the electronic format of these publications do not pose a safety threat when users print individual pages before this change can be released. We are currently working with various EFB companies to have our products available for use with “smart devices”. Our Aeronautical Information Services department is currently modernizing its production platform and is migrating to an automated data management system. This new system will take us from a product driven process to a data driven one and allow us to enter agreements with EFB companies for a more modern form of distribution of our aeronautical data. As we move closer to our target dates, we will advise our customers of these upcoming changes on the NAV CANADA website. Thank you Regards, Cassandra Sullivan Aeropubs Customer Specialist, NAV Canada Customer & Commercial Services
Wondering when
I know this is getting beaten to death, but as of yesterday, May 3, 2011, I spoke to NavCanada and received the same response posted above. I was told these publications would be available to Canadian pilots by the summer (June) of 2011. One would think that with flight Safety being paramount to all pilots, going from a digitized map available in the US to one on paper would be a number one flight safety issue in my opinion. I have an iPad and IPhone 4 itching to be used with the new technology in portable moving maps and flight planning.
I am looking to buy a plane
I am looking to buy a plane summer of 2013 and fly it from the lower 48 to Alaska and would love to use a ifly 700 WITH Canadian sectionals. It seems NAV Canada is dragging their feet getting canadian sectionals digital, if I could manually scan the canadian sectionals is there a way to manually upload them to a gps unit like ifly? Perhaps ifly could do that for me as a one off for extra charges, if not I have to go with a garmin 500 and its going to be dicy flying through canada, the refresh rate on a garmin pretty much sucks and its not sectional based but I will be in a tiny cockpit and cockpit management will be a huge issue. I have a year before I actually do the flight but would like to get familiar with the unit that I choose and it seems this issue of digitial canadian sectionals has been an issue for a number of years now which is unfortunate. The last ditch effort will be to get dataviz on my iphone and take the sectionals to a copy shop at work and load the Pdf's to my iphone, it will not give me positional overlay but at least I will have them as a back up without having 4 or 5 paper sectionals in a cramped cockpit.
