Canada Airport Manoeuvring Surface
Entry ID: Canada_ACS_AirportManoeuvring


Summary
Abstract: The Canada Airport Manoeuvring Surface (CAMS) is a digital product which
provides pictorial displays of Canadian airport manoeuvring areas found in the
Canada Air Pilot or the military GPH 200, and may be reproduced for the sole
purpose of assisting pilots during aircraft ground movement operations.
Up-to-date information on flight planning procedures and airport services,
including fuel, lighting, and local prohibitions or procedures is found in the
Canada Flight Supplement.The airport diagrams are readily available to general
aviation pilots through NAV CANADA's website to enhance aviation safety and to
help to mitigate some of the risks associated with runway incursions.
