CIFIB plans to deploy about 100 sites across Canada. The network won’t cover every part of Canada, but we will install ground stations and grow the network based on demand and support from local groups, bringing these safety-enhancing services to popular GA airports and routes.

September: Ontario sites at Stratford and Burlington stations are online. Several more Ontario sites are in the pipeline.

October: We signed our first site outside Ontario, in High River, Alberta!

November: We signed up sites in Ottawa, and in Hanover, ON! Discussions are ongoing for sites in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Quebec.

The semiconductor shortage that has been affecting car manufacturing and many other businesses is also affecting CIFIB. One of the main chips used in manufacturing our ground stations is in short supply. We are evaluating options for sourcing them or replacing them with another chip.
