Section One:  Flying in Canada


Both the AOPA member’s section website and NavCanada’s website contain a wealth of information on flying in Canada.  Cirrus pilots considering a trip to Alaska should consult both of these resources.


The FAA website offers an overview on flying in Alaska and specific tips for various towns and regions of Alaska.


This section of the Alaska Flying Guide aims to provide Cirrus pilots with additional “news you can use” based on practical experience, rather than information that is readily found online elsewhere.
