Notice of Change
Ottawa Terminal Control Area
Nav Canada, the country's provider of civil air navigation services, conducted an aeronautical study that reviewed the airspace structure and classification of the Ottawa Terminal Control Area (TCA).
The study recommends that due to the density and volume of combined IFR/VFR traffic as well as the number of conflicting trajectories within the TCA, the airspace will be re-classified from ‘D’ to ‘C’. Furthermore, the floors in some of the TCA’s sectors will be raised and the boundaries moved in order to decompress VFR traffic within and underlying the TCA.
These changes will take effect 30 April 2015 at 0901 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). The appropriate aeronautical publications will be amended including the 5th Edition of the Ottawa VFR Terminal Area (VTA) chart available early May. Refer to the Ottawa TCA AIP Supplement until the VTA is available.
