On November 8, 2018, NAV CANADA will be implementing new nighttime arrival and departure flight paths designed to fly over fewer residential neighbourhoods. NAV CANADA will use the new routes nightly between the hours of 12:30 a.m. and 6:30 a.m.
The new nighttime arrival and departure flight paths are known as Ideas 1 and 2 of the Six Ideas and relate to NAV CANADA’s role at Toronto Pearson. Lower demand and fewer aircraft in Toronto Pearson’s airspace at night provide an opportunity to use flight paths that impact fewer people.
These new flight paths will be permanent and are based on consultations with the community that took place in Spring 2018.
