Who Are We? What Do We Do?

Every decision a pilot makes has consequences—for themselves, for their passengers and crew, and for everyone else in the skies. From the student in a single-engine Cessna, to a specialized Medevac flight crew, to the pilots of a commercial air carrier, what they all need first and foremost is reliable, dependable, up-to-the-minute information. That’s where you could come in.
Flight Service Specialists work in Flight Service Stations (FSS) and Flight Information Centres (FIC). Flight Service Stations provide local weather information, airport advisory services and traffic information; while the country’s five FICs deliver flight planning, in-depth interpretive weather information and en route advisories to aircraft operating in Canadian airspace.
