As we all continue to work to improve safety at our airports and aerodromes, have you ever wondered whether that tree, tower, or other structure is effecting the safe and efficient operation of your facility?
Have you worked with Transport Canada and been informed of issues that need to be dealt with, but aren't sure how they decided that onetree that's the issue?
Want to know how to use the equipment at your airport, or do you want to know more about how to use new systems, such as the iPad, to calculate your slopes and find discrepancies?
Or, maybe you just want to refresh the knowledge you already have?

Looking to take a course that will make understanding Aeronautical Zoning a lot easier?
The objective of this training course is to guide participants on a comprehensive in-class and practical overview of the main elements of aeronautical zoning. Following the training session, participants will have the necessary practical skills and knowledge to accurately assess aeronautical zoning impacts by either desktop analysis or in-field analysis.
The course will include a review of the physical characteristics of the Obstacle Limitation Surfaces, Electronic Zoning and Bird Hazard Protection Area in accordance with Transport Canada standards and recommendations. Using a combination of in-class review and practical in-field sessions, participants will have the opportunity to assess, in a real world environment, aeronautical zoning impacts.
This course provides a three (3) day training session to participants, covering topics regarding aeronautical zoning. The training session will be split between in-class review, discussions and exercises, and in-field practical assignments.
The following is an overview of the course:
1. Airport Obstacle Limitation Surfaces per TP312, 4th;
Operational: In accordance with the Airport Operations Manual (AOM) Edition
Registered: In accordance with the Airport Zoning Regulations (AZR)
2. Electronic Zoning per TP1247;
3. Bird Hazard Protection per TP1247;
4. Heliport Obstacle Limitation Surfaces per CARs 325;
5. Practical in-field aeronautical zoning training exercise; and,
6. Presentation of practical tools used for Obstacle Limitation Surface assessment including inclinometers, digital laser range finders and iphone/ipad applications.
