TFR's in Canada?

Don B 2 years ago updated by Eric.Rush (Project Lead) 2 years ago 1

I was just planning a flight for tomorrow that will pass in the vicinity of the G-7 meeting for which I know there must be an active TFR, but it doesn't show up on the Flight Planner.

TFR's displayed in the AOPA Flight Planner come directly from the FAA TFR database. If the FAA publishes a TFR, it will show up in the flight planner. However, in looking at the FAA's TFR map, I do not see any Canadian TFR's so it is likely that the FAA does not contain them in their database since it is not in the US. I know that TFR's in Canada are not as frequent as in the US but I don't see any at all on the FAA's map, including in the area of the G7 Summit.


So please contact Flight Service for a briefing and use other sources specific to Canada to check TFR status prior to the flight.
