Are There YYZ Approach Plates On The Web?

Hi guys.

A few months ago I got an ICOM IC-R2 receiver (it's smaller than a pack of smokes).

I've been having a great time with it while visiting Toronto's Pearson Intl Airport (YYZ), as well as just listening to pilots checking in with Toronto's arrival controllers from my home (I live 12 nm from YYZ).

Unfortunately I can't find an old Canada Air Pilot (CAP) book that I have, so I have no approch plates to look at to see where the final approach fixes are located around the city.

When I hear a pilot receive instructions to cross over "NOAH" at 4000 ft and 190 knots while on the ILS for rwy 24 R, it sure would be nice to know where NOAH is.

So, before I go out and buy a new $30 CAP with approach charts for every airport in Canada (when I only want Toronto's) I thought I'd ask you guys if there's any way to view Toronto's approach charts over the internet. Is this possible?

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks,

Chris  Smile

Hi guys.

> Matt_milligan, WOW!, Thank You so much for that link. I'm sitting here with this big smile on my face. Big grin That link is exactly what I was hoping for.

The next time I'm driving eastbound on the 401, I'm sure I'll have a thought that you live somewhere around here as I pass Westney Rd and Harwood Ave.

>Slawko, Thanks for that info. I believe that I've heard of Threshold before, but, I don't know where it's located (it's beside YYZ somewhere, isn't it?).

I really like that store called Aviation World that's on Carlingview right under very short final for rwy 24R, only a few thousand feet from the threshold. That's where I got my receiver from.

Thanks Again guys.

Now if someone could only find live YYZ ATC on the web. That would be cool. I don't think that anyone has picked up for squawkident.com when it went off the air.

Slawko, can an expired CAP be ordered from Threshold's website (didn't find it in the list)?  Smile

Nope they only have current ones on the website, to get expired ones you have to come in, or call....

Call in for expired charts, and they'll gladly mail them to you. The new charts come into effect in the next week I believe so you'll have more of a selection to pick from.

That's why I made sure to email a local biz jet operator a couple days ago wondering if they'd throw some of their expired stuff my way. Big grin You guys think they'll be nice enough to do that?

Anyways, just in case, do they (Threshold) accept orders by email (don't believe in phones)?  Smile

Hey guys, sorry if this is a little off-topic, but let me introduce myself. I'm Scott, out in Ajax and have had my membership here FOREVER but hardly ever post - I just lurk! I've been happy to see that you get together what seems like fairly often at YYZ as a group and would be interested in meeting you all at some point; problem is I'd probably be the youngest member of the group at 18. If that's not an issue I'd love to join you guys sometime in the near future!

Take care!

Captain, you are most welcome to meet up with us! I have a feeling this weekend we're all getting together again. You will not be the youngest member though, AirCanadaMan is only 17, C-GRYK is 19, Slawko is 20. I'm 24 so the age isn't a big deal at all! Keep looking for threads of when we will get together or email one of us.

LY744, you can email them at info@thresholdaviation.com and you can do the transaction that way. Obviously you'll need a credit card to do the order, and you might be more comfortable phoning in with the credit card number. I might be working there on Friday from 10 to about 2 or so, but I'm not sure at this point. In any case good luck with that.
