Effective May 2020, there are new VFR terminal procedures for the Red Deer airport, CYQF. Check the CFS for details as this document does not supersede information contained within the CFS or NOTAMs.
On December 31, 2020, NAV CANADA, published an Aeronautical Information Circular (AIC) 36/20 on new transponder requirements near Red Deer Regional Airport (CYQF) as a result of a recently concluded aeronautical study.
The transponder requirement will result in all aircraft operating within the transition area to be visible to air traffic service surveillance and raising the floor of the transition area will allow non-transponder equipped aircraft to continue to operate from the airport.
The floor of the Red Deer 15 nautical miles (NM) Class E transition area will be raised to 4,000 feet above sea level (ASL) and the transition area will become transponder airspace. The changes will take effect February 25, 2021 at 0901 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) and be reflected in aeronautical publications. Watch for further updates on the NAV CANADA site and the AIC publications.
