7. These Regulations come into force on the day on which the requirements prescribed in subsection 5.6(2) of the Aeronautics Act are met.

SCHEDULE (Sections 1 and 2)

In this schedule, all grid coordinates are in metres (m) and refer to the 1983 North American Datum, Zone 19, Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) projection. Grid coordinates have been computed using a combined average scale factor of 0.99959894.

In this schedule, all elevation values are in metres (m) and are based on the Canadian Geodetic Vertical Datum (CGVD28).

PART 1

AIRPORT REFERENCE POINT

The airport reference point, as shown on the zoning plan, is the geometric centre of the runway thresholds, at grid coordinates 7 069 965.223 N, 521 899.939 E (latitude 63°45′24″ N, longitude 68°33′22″ W). It is located on the centre line of the strip surface at a distance of 1 371.43 m from the end of the strip surface associated with runway 17-35 and its assigned elevation is 21.24 m above sea level.

PART 2

APPROACH SURFACES

The approach surfaces, as shown on the zoning plan, are described as follows:

(a) an imaginary inclined surface abutting the end of the strip surface associated with runway approach 17 and ascending, from an assigned elevation of 33.01 m above sea level, at a ratio of 1 m measured vertically to 50 m measured horizontally, to an imaginary horizontal line drawn at right angles to the projected centre line of the strip surface and distant 15 000 m measured horizontally from the end of the strip surface; the outer ends of the imaginary horizontal line being 2 400 m from the projected centre line and 300 m above the assigned elevation at the end of the strip surface associated with runway approach 17; and

(b) an imaginary inclined surface abutting the end of the strip surface associated with runway approach 35 and ascending, from an assigned elevation of 21.24 m above sea level, at a ratio of 1 m measured vertically to 50 m measured horizontally, to an imaginary horizontal line drawn at right angles to the projected centre line of the strip surface and distant 15 000 m measured horizontally from the end of the strip surface; the outer ends of the imaginary horizontal line being 2 400 m from the projected centre line and 300 m above the assigned elevation at the end of the strip surface associated with runway approach 35.

The elevation of an approach surface at any point is equal to the elevation of the nearest point on the centre line of that approach surface. The elevation of an approach surface centre line is calculated from the elevation of the abutting end of the strip surface, and increases at the constant ratios set out in this Part.

PART 3

OUTER SURFACE

The outer surface, as shown on the zoning plan, is an imaginary surface extending outward from the airport reference point to a radius of 4 000 m. It is situated at a constant elevation of 45 m above the airport reference point, but at 9 m above the ground when that elevation would place the outer surface at less than 9 m above the ground.

PART 4

STRIP SURFACE

The elevation of a strip surface at any point is equal to the elevation of the nearest point on the centre line of that strip surface. The elevation of the strip surface centre line between the strip surface end and the closest strip surface threshold is equal to the elevation of the strip surface end. The strip surface centre line between the strip surface thresholds has a slope that decreases at the constant ratio set out in Column 7 of the table below. The elevation of any point along the centre line is calculated using the data set out in that table.

The strip surface, as shown on the zoning plan, is an imaginary rectangular surface described as follows:

the strip surface associated with runway 17-35 is 300 m in total width, being 150 m on either side of the centre line of the runway. The strip surface commences 60 m to the northwest of threshold 17 and ends 60 m to the southeast of threshold 35, having a total length of 2 742.86 m. The 17 end of the strip surface has an assigned elevation of 33.01 m and the 35 end of the strip surface has an assigned elevation of 21.24 m. The azimuth of the centre line of runway 17-35 is S 44°50′23″ E. Threshold 17 has grid coordinates of 7 070 894.76 N and 520 975.59 E, and threshold 35 has grid coordinates of 7 069 035.68 N and 522 824.29 E.

PART 5

TRANSITIONAL SURFACES

Each transitional surface, as shown on the zoning plan, is an imaginary inclined surface ascending at a ratio of 1 m measured vertically to 7 m measured horizontally at right angles to the centre line and projected centre line of the strip surface, extending upward and outward from the lateral limits of the strip surface and its approach surfaces to the intersection with the outer surface.

The elevation of a point on the lower edge of a transitional surface abutting a strip surface is equal to the elevation of the nearest point on the centre line of the abutting strip surface. The elevation of a point on the lower edge of a transitional surface abutting an approach surface is equal to the elevation of the nearest point on the centre line of the abutting approach surface.

PART 6

LIMIT OF AREA CONTAINING LANDS TO WHICH THESE REGULATIONS APPLY

The limit of the area containing the lands to which these Regulations apply, as shown on the zoning plan, is described as follows:

commencing at a point being the intersection of the arc of a circle with a radius of 4 000 m centred on the airport reference point, and a 4 000 m line commencing at the said point and drawn on a bearing of N 45°09′23″ E;

thence southeasterly, southerly and southwesterly along the arc of the said circle a distance of 5 742.93 m, more or less, to the intersection with the northeastern limit of the approach surface associated with runway approach 35;

thence southeasterly along the said approach surface a distance of 12 546.82 m, more or less, to the southeastern corner thereof;

thence southwesterly along the southern limit of the said approach surface a distance of 4 800 m to the southwestern corner thereof;

thence northwesterly along the southwestern limit of the said approach surface a distance of 12 546.82 m, more or less, to the intersection of the said approach surface with the arc of the said circle;

thence westerly, northerly and northeasterly along the arc of the said circle a distance of 11 485.63 m, more or less, to the intersection with the northwestern limit of the approach surface associated with runway approach 17;

thence northwesterly along the northwestern limit of the said approach surface a distance of 12 546.58 m, more or less, to the northwestern corner thereof;

thence northeasterly along the northern limit of the said approach surface a distance of 4 800 m to the northeastern corner thereof;

thence southeasterly along the northeastern limit of the said approach surface a distance of 12 546.58 m, more or less, to the intersection with the arc of the said circle;

thence northeasterly, easterly and southeasterly along the arc of the said circle a distance of 5 742.35 m, more or less, to the point of commencement.
