So I was looking through the latest version of the CFS (December 17th, 2009) and the Barrie-Orillia (Lake Simcoe Regional) airport identifier has changed.
I popped on the airport’s website and they have confirmed it:
Effective December 17, 2009, the Lake Simcoe Regional Airport’s ICAO Identifier will change to CYLS, replacing the current identifier, CNB9.
I was always under the impression that the “real” airports didn’t have a number in their identifier. Guess Lake Simcoe Regional has “grown up!”
One of the cool things that this airport has (that I wish all airports did) is the ability to call a special phone number and hear a the latest weather from their AWOS.
I’m going to talk more about the weather services that are available from NavCanada tomorrow.
