NOTAM for Pilots!: The Flight Simulator runway numbers for Halifax (CYHZ) are wrong:
Runway 06/24 is runway 05/23
Runway 15/33 is runway 14/32
Please note that the Localizer frequencies and courses remain the same; ATC will be referring to the new runway numbers

Welcome to the Moncton FIR!
The Moncton FIR is located in eastern Canada and it covers the Maritime provinces: New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. It also includes some airspace of the North Atlantic in the vicinity of Sable Island and a significant portion of the Gulf of St. Lawrence (including Les Iles de la Madeleine, Quebec). The Montreal FIR borders us to the north, Gander to the east, New York Oceanic Control Area to the south, and Boston ARTCC's airspace is west of us.
There are many reasons to fly the Maritime provinces. Just look at us on the map! There are so many routes both within the Moncton FIR, and the adjoining FIRs of Gander, Montreal and Boston that are within easy reach of even the slowest airplanes. Whether you want to fly a jet, a turboprop or a piston engine aircraft, we have a route for you to fly. Moncton, NB, to Charlottetown, PEI, is only about 60 NM, while runs like Halifax International, NS, to St. John's, NF, is about 500 NM. So many combinations give you those short flights for time killing, or the longer routes for when you just have to fly for a while. Then, of course, the international routes and longer cross country and oceanic routes are always available, allowing those with the stamina to make those longer stints to fly across North America or the North Atlantic Ocean.
Please note, that the information contained in the pages on this website are meant only for a simulated environment associated with the online flight sim community of VATSIM, and for entertainment only. This is not meant to be a reference site for current aeronautical information, nor is it affiliated in any way with any of the real-world control agencies. While every attempt is planned to keep the information up to date, it takes a lot of work for a volunteer, so the information is expected to fall behind from time to time. It is therefore advisable for real-world pilots to obtain current publications of the Canada Air Pilot, Canada Flight Supplement, and the appropriate LO en route navigation charts. If you're looking for the real Moncton Centre, please contact NAV CANADA, and not me. Thanks! Mike Freeman, Moncton FIR Chief.
