Resources for upcoming SID/STAR phraseology change

The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has developed harmonized phraseology for Standard Instrument Departures (SIDs) and Standard Terminal Arrivals (STARs). NAV CANADA will be implementing these changes as of April 27, 2017, as per the Aeronautical Information Circular 2/17 issued on January 5, 2017.

NavCanada has posted several resources on their corporate website which may be of interest to any of our members affected by the change.
