Air Navigation System (ANS)

The International Association of Airport Executives Canada (IAAE Canada) is pleased to announce a two-day program on the ANS (Air Navigation System) and its functional relationship with the airport community.  Since the devolution of operation and maintenance of ANS from Transport Canada to Nav Canada, evolutionary changes have modified traditional service relationships that existed between Airports and Transport Canada.
Perhaps you would like to host this course, thereby saving you money? If so or just to get your questions answered, email and ask.

This program is designed for managers/supervisors, operations and maintenance personnel at community airports, mid size or major international airports.  It would also be of interest to senior managers as an information session.

The program will be presented by Mr. Ehor Mazurok, B.Sc., P.Eng.  Mr. Mazurok’s 24 year career with Transport Canada consisted of 11 years as a project engineer involved in design of airport and enroute navigational systems in Alberta, Northern BC and Northern  erritories (Western Region), that consisted of commissioning those facilities, and carrying out investigations where non-compliance to standards occurred. For the next thirteen years Mr. Mazurok managed an Engineering Group consisting of Electronic Engineers and technical specialists in developing and expanding the Air Navigational System in Western Region.

Upon devolution of ANS to Nav Canada, Mr. Mazurok became a professional consultant where for the last 16 years provided consulting services to corporate clients and Airport Authorities, in Airport Planning of Communications, Navigational systems, Radar Surveillance and Security systems.  Mr. Mazurok briefs senior executives, managers, engineers and technical specialists on aspects of Air Navigation and issues concerning development around Airport Navigational Systems.

Program Description

Program participants will be familiarized with the ANS in Canada, its various components, and the airport navigational systems that support it.  A discussion will be presented on Obstacle Limitation Surfaces, Electronic Zoning plans, and TP1247E.  Internationally, other ANS operators have promoted through ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) significant changes in design of Electronic Zoning plans that is far more restrictive than TP1247E.  If those restrictions are adopted by Nav Canada for for design of electronic zoning plans, this will significantly reduce available land for development near airport navigational systems.  The impact of those restrictions will  adversely affect leasehold revenues that could be derived from airport development. 

The Nav Canada development review process will be discussed for conforming and non-conforming airport development around
airport navigational systems.  This discussion will detail the process Airport Authorities will be required to follow in requesting approval of conforming or non-conforming airport development.  For those developments Nav Canada may request the airport authority submit an expert evaluation on the effects a non-conforming development may have on their systems.  Submitting a non-conforming development may incur considerable financial costs as well as costly time delays to the airport authority, or the leaseholder, before the necessary Nav Canada approvals are obtained.  The review process of an actual non-conforming development will be discussed.

On devolution of Airports from Transport Canada to Airport Authorities, AFSA (Airport Facilities Service Agreement) was the document that detailed responsibilities of Airport Authorities and Transport Canada as to the operation and maintenance of air navigational
facilities located at the airport.  This obligation was transferred to Nav Canada in the devolution.  Some provisions of this agreement in recent years have been negated by notwithstanding clauses.  The impact of this on Airport Authorities will be discussed with relevant examples.
