Summary
Abstract: Terminal Area Charts (TAC) depict aeronautical navigation information for areas
around major airports at a larger scale. Vertical coverage is from the surface
up to, but not including 18,000' ASL. The charts are printed back-to-back on
one sheet.

Terminal areas covered: Gander, Halifax, Moncton, Quebec, Montreal, Ottawa,
Toronto, Windsor, Thunder Bay, Winnipeg, Regina, Saskatoon, Calgary, Edmonton,
Vancouver/Victoria, Bermuda, Iceland, Azores.Used by pilots for aeronautical
navigation around the major urban centres in Canada and the North Atlantic.
