US Pilots: Flying Procedures in Canada

For the most part, flying regulations and procedures in Canada are the same as in the U.S. However, there are a few differences that are of interest to U.S. pilots coming to Canada for the first time.

  • Canada uses ICAO flight plan forms. Forms, and instructions on filling them out, are available here.
  • There is no VFR flight following.
  • There is no VFR-on-top, only VFR over-the-top (i.e., to penetrate cloud and fly on top you must be on an IFR flight plan, and remain on an IFR flight plan).
  • All airspace above 12,500 ASL (or 2,000 AGL, whichever is higher) up to 18,000 ASL is Class B airspace and requires a clearance to enter. VFR flight is allowed in Class B airspace with a clearance.
  • All airspace above 18,000 ASL is Class A airspace, and is IFR-only.
  • Read-back is mandatory on all IFR clearances.
  • Read-back is mandatory on runway hold-short clearances.
  • For IFR procedures obtain a local briefing since there are significant differences to FAA handling

Reservations - PPR

First time arriving pilots operating jet aircraft and aircraft above 12,500 lbs must obtain PPR (prior permission required) from Boundary Bay Air Services (phone: 604-952-2532). In order to encourage the highest possible safety awareness we will email or fax this PPR authorization notifying pilots that there is:

  • Noise Sensitive Area is to the North-West of the airport in the populated areas (Ladner).
  • Increased bird activity during the “dawn and dusk times”, and at various times of the year there are transient and migratory birds including eagles and Canada Geese. The airport has a monitoring and wildlife control program in place.
  • Pilots should also be aware that Delta Air Park is located 2.5nm to the East. All procedures are outlined in the Canadian Flight Supplement which can be ordered from Nav Canada.
