Canadian In-Flight Information Broadcasting Association


Canadian In-Flight Information Broadcasting Association (CIFIB) is a not-for-profit corporation that is creating and managing the ground station network that provides in-flight weather and traffic services to GA pilots operating in our coverage area within Canadian domestic airspace. Our mission is to improve General Aviation safety by transmitting available weather and traffic information to pilots in the cockpit to improve decision-making and to raise awareness by promoting the use of this source of information.

The members that created and manage CIFIB are also members of various COPA (Canadian Owners and Pilots Association) flights, including Flight 26 (Waterloo – Breslau Flyers), Flight 28 (Burlington), Flight 172 (Kincardine), and Flight 70 (Oshawa). All members are volunteers and receive no compensation from CIFIB. Many have contributed financially to get this project off the ground.
