      • Non-Jet Aircraft only
        • RODEO2
        • YYC6
        • Both SIDs clear you for an initial Climb to 7.000 ft. Once airborne, ATC will clear you higher depending on traffic conditions.
      • Jet Aircraft only
        • BANFF2
        • STAMP8
        • Both SIDs clear you for an initial Climb to 7.000 ft. Once airborne, ATC will clear you higher depending on traffic conditions.

  • Preferred Routes
    • Mindful of your Aircraft Type. Make sure you are using waypoints and airways accordingly. For example:
      • A Non-jet Aircraft needs to file a waypoint contained on either the RODEO2 or YYC6 SIDs. Then follow Low Alt airways.
      • A Jet Aircraft needs to file a waypoint contained on either the BANFF2 or STAMP8 SIDs. Then follow High Alt airways.
