Lloyd Bunbury just sent us a note indicating that Nav Canada has amended the flight plan filing form to allow indicating a tracking URL to follow for the flight from such sources as SPOT.

This will be a great boon for pilots and may actually help get someone found sooner as it makes more locating resources quickly available to SAR.
