Article copied from Safety Articles http://www.hpac.ca/pub/?pid=48
- The HPAC is about to get a new website, so I am salvaging and updating what I think is valuable.

CARs Hang Gliding states that we are to call our Nearest Flight Service Station.
- So reserve calls to FIC to where you are considerably distant to FIC.

Transport Canada is proof reading the following article. Fall 2015. Stay tuned.

NAV CANADA's Flight Information Centre (FIC) Project is a coast-to-coast program offering pilots easier access to system-wide flight information services for an
assigned geographic region, including interpretive weather briefings, flight planning (HAGAR), NOTAMs, enroute advisories and remote aerodrome advisory services.
Nine Flight Information Centres have been established in Halifax, Québec, London, North Bay, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Kamloops, Whitehorse and Yellowknife.

All pilots in Canada will phone FIC with a common toll-free number, 1-866-WXBRIEF.
This phone number will route the pilot’s call to the FIC serving the area from which the call is being made.

An additional toll free number 1-866-GOMÉTÉO, also available anywhere in Canada, routes the call to the Québec FIC for French service including your local area.

FIC provides you with "Advance Aviation Weather Briefing" (see details below.)
If necessary they will forward you call or give you the phone number of your nearest airport (FSS) to ensure they know you are filing your HAGAR.

In addition, nine other toll-free numbers, operational in both Canada and the United States, will allow pilots to contact a specific FIC of their choice.
These area-specific phone numbers will be very useful for flights that cross over multiple service areas. Cellular and satellite phone users will be encouraged to use these numbers as well:

1-866-541-4101 Kamloops FIC. . . . . . . . . . .1-866-541-4104 London FIC. . . . . . . . . . .1-866-541-4107 Whitehorse FIC

Tell them where you fly from, when, for how long, where to, and via what route.
We do not File Flight Plans. We don't land at airports. We have pickup vehicles.
We just inform them of our activity. We are thus and then permitted to fly in Controlled Airspace

All you have to do to file your [b]HAGAR is tell your FIC Weather Briefer and your nearest FSS (airport)
what you are up to before you hang up. It’s that simple and its a Free Service.

NOTE: If you plan to fly through Uncontrolled Airports which have Controlled Airspace:
Make sure you Obtain Permission from the Airport Operator First.
