Classic Aero-TV: Canadian Pilots Speak Out - Privatization North of the Border

From 2017 (YouTube Version): Canadian Pilots Open Up To Aero-News At AirVenture…

Canada has had a privatized Air Traffic Control System for some time. With the debate raging over privatization in the U.S., Aero-News stringer Maxine Scheer caught up with some Canadian GA pilots at AirVenture to ask them what it was like to fly under such a system.

EAA Canadian Council member, Ian Brown, told Scheer that they don't notice that it is a privatized system at all. "We get a bill once a year, and my bill for my RV is $68 per year for all Air Traffic Control services," Brown said.

He said it is his impression that most of the fear for GA pilots about a privatized system in the U.S. is who gets control of the system.

Council member Paul Dyck is a former Air Traffic Controller as well as a pilot in Canada. He said that he went through the privatization transition when the service went from Transport Canada to NavCanada, and the modernization that happened after the transition "jumped ahead in leaps and bounds." He said that he believes that the service is much better under NavCanada.

So, at least these two Canadian pilots feel that the privatization benefitted GA, and the system as a whole.
