Probably for hanging your coat on. Or did you mean hangar?
I'm going to go with "my phone auto corrected" excuse. Yes Hangar-a large building with an extensive floor area, typically for housing aircraft.

Nav Canada Flight Inspection Pilots

Hello Everyone,

I've been curious for a while about working for Nav Canada as a pilot flying their flight inspection aircraft, but I've never seen any job openings for this position.

Does anyone have any info about this? What does attrition, QOL, pay, schedules etc... look like?

Cheers!
