Nov 4/17 – Tower at CYSN

I was planning to take up the Cherokee on Sunday afternoon but the visibility was down to 5 sm. So instead we got tour of the tower at the St. catharines airport. It was absolutely fascinating to learn about what they do and how they keep us pilots safe. St. Catherines airport is on the mandatory frequency 123.25. This means that anybody entering the zone must report their intentions. This makes flying much safer than just flying around and broadcasting position and intentions such as in Welland. I have been asked several times to extend downwind as not to interfere with aircraft on long final or cut cross wind leg. It was quite nice to put voices to the faces. Thank you guys.
