Airport Idents on Maps

Dear NavCanada,

Next time you print the Toronto VTA and VNC, can you please put airport identifiers next to airports like you currently do with Navaids?

    Did you send that to NavCan in an e mail or something?

  2. Matt says:

    I totally agree with you Blake! It’s a pain to pull the HUGE CFS out just to check the identifier.

  3. Blake says:

    No I didn’t.. This is just my “open letter” to them.
    Yes. It’s a pain. I dont know why they don’t do it. Its handy for programming GPSs and such not to have to use the CFS.

  4. Jonathan says:

    It’s an excellent idea. The CFS has its advantages, but just as a reference on the map, it would be handy. I wonder what they’d say if this idea was formally sent to them or it was brought up sometime…

  5. Blake says:

    On a 100% serious note… how would one go about doing that?
    Would starting with COPA be a good idea? Or just firing off an email to navcanada?
