I just did this short video for recrutement at Nav Canada. It's a brief video of my job.

You're welcome! :D

Are you a high level IFR ATC from Moncton center?

Or perhaps you are one of the contrails we see at FL340 and above?

Lucky.

This is Whitecourt FSS. The left 1/3 is the FSS, the right 2/3 is the terminal.

I don't work at Whitecourt, the picture is from Wikipedia. :)

I just wanted to show the Sept-Iles guys how good they've got it!

Here in CYGL we have the same model. A lot of room! We are also getting Excds next month.

I was just kiddin around. The men and women of our FSS's and towers do an excellent job day in and day out. Like anywhere, someone takes it to the next level and thinks they own the airspace. Fly there enough and you'll know what i'm talkin bout.

Nice video! See lots of FSS units are 360 degree view. Not all have radar either, just the ADF. Thanks for sharing that.
