New NAV Canada Control Tower coming summer 2017


Artist Concept New NAV CANADA Control Tower


NAV Canada is pleased to announce the construction of a new air traffic control tower at the Region of Waterloo International Airport. This new structure will replace the existing tower built over 45 years ago. 

At 19.4 metres high (64 ft.), the new tower will be almost five metres (16 ft.) taller than the present structure; a 33⅓ per cent increase. The larger cab will expand the controllers' workspace from the current 24 square metres (260 sq. ft.) to 32 sq. m (345 sq. ft.). The four storey building will have an elevator and is anticipated to be completed by the summer 2017.

NAV Canada also offers web-based aviation weather and NOTAM information and is developing additional applications to facilitate flight planning.
