This just in...Transport Canada amends TC AIM and heeds my take on things.

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/>.
