Welcome to the Virtual Edmonton Flight Information Region
Welcome to The Virtual Edmonton Flight Information Region (FIR), we are the largest FIR in Canada. Edmonton is home to the 3rd and 5th busiest airports in Canada, Calgary (CYYC) and Edmonton (CYEG). Our airspace spans from the North Pole to the US Border and from Alaska to Baffin Island, creating one of the most complex and busiest airspaces in the world. Besides traffic to/from Calgary and Edmonton, there are lots of overflight traffic from Vancouver, Anchorage, Seattle, and Winnipeg, as well as from the US West coast to Europe and from the US East coast to Asia and Alaska. This results in lots of traffic flowing in any number of directions.
