Re: YYZ pilot questions

Took a photo of this ATIS the other morning. Probably the funniest ATIS I've seen in a while at YYZ. <Slow Clap>

Side note, great job to the controllers for moving as much as they do within the boundaries they've been given.

Re: Centre controllers sectors

Check the CFS in each respective FIR. For example you can look up Toronto in there and one of the pages will list all the enroute control frequencies. The same goes for each FSS.

You can also just look up a near by airport and see what the PAL or CTR freq is in the CFS.

Take your passengers and quickly review apron safety like don't walk into props or stay away from airplanes with the red beacon on. Once at the airplane, review the applicable safety items begi...

I can personally tell you the owner has admitted to conducting aerobatics in the 150. He bought it for dirt cheap from Quebec and brought it over to Toronto. Yes, it's cheap, but you get what you pay for most likely.
