I've always wondered why there are no Control Zones in Canada designated as Class B. The CARs and the Designated Handbook have the provision for that in there, but how come airspace as busy as CYYZ or CYYC is not designated as Class B. South of the border, loads of airports like Seattle, JFK, etc. are all Class B, so how come there's none in Canada? Is there anything already in the works?
Class B in the States is not the same as Class B in Canada. In fact, with a few exceptions, Class B in the States is more or less in line with class C in Canada. Class C in the States is similar to Class D in Canada.
Therefore, our major airports in Canada, namely YYZ, YVR, YUL, YYC, YOW, etc which are all Class C, offer pretty much identical services and ask for the same requirements from pilots compared to the class B airports in the States.
The major difference between US Class B and Canadian Class C can be found in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 61.95, restricting student pilots on a solo flight. There is no such requirement in Canada.
