Voice communication between pilots and ATS personnel is a critical safety link in the Air Traffic Services (ATS) system. As part of the effort to increase awareness of the risks associated with non-standard communication, a working group has developed an awareness campaign video called First Defence.
The First Defence working group consisted of Nav Canada, Transport Canada, a few airlines and several aviation associations including COPA.
Former COPA staff member John Quarterman volunteered his acting expertise and starred in one of the scenarios featured in the video.
The video along with posters and other material for download is available online at:
