By Jane DiRaimo, Community Assistant to Ottawa City Councillor George Darouze, Ward 20, Ottawa
Councillor Darouze has asked me to pass on this important information from NAV CANADA concerning Airspace Improvements at Ottawa International Airport. It is very important to residents living in and around the airport and in our Ward further out with regards to flights taking off and landing at the airport. They are seeking your input and would like to have that by 30 June 2016 or earlier. Please visit their website listed below along with their brief message.
Nav Canada is seeking public input regarding proposed changes to flight paths for aircraft arriving to Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport.
The proposed flight paths are estimated to save up to two minutes flying time for arrivals while greenhouse gas (GHGs) emissions reductions are estimated at 750 metric tonnes each year.
Nav Canada has made information – including maps – on proposed flight path changes available online. Residents are invited to learn about changes and provide feedback using the comment tool available on the website by 30 June 2016.
