My March 11 post depicted my second article in Canadian Aviator regarding the gap (where one could drive a cement truck through) between the weatherman and the pilot. Especially when it comes to their archaic website! Well guess what? Transport Canada addressed it, albeit indirectly by releasing a memo. Progress!
(b) Aviation weather web site (AWWS)—NAV CANADA’s aviation weather web site (AWWS), available at <https://flightplanning.navcanada.ca/>, and collaborative flight planning system, available at <https://plan.navcanada.ca>, offer aviation weather products, NOTAM and the ability to file flight plans. For more information, visit <www.navcanada.ca>. Pilots operating near the border should note that U.S. METAR, SPECI and TAF must be obtained through the Aviation Digital Data Service (ADDS), available at <www.aviationweather.gov/adds/>.
