35 FIRING PRACTICE AND EXERCISE AREAS


Explanatory Notes

 Firing and bombing practices, and defence exercises, take place in a number of areas off the coasts of Canada.

The principal types of practices carried out are:

 Bombing practice from aircraft.

(a) Air to air, and air to sea or ground firing.

(b) The former is carried out by aircraft at a large white or red sleeve, a winged target, or flag towed by another aircraft moving on a steady course. The latter are carried out from aircraft at towed or stationary targets on sea or land, the firing taking place to seaward in the case of those on land. All marine craft operating as range safety craft, target towers or control launches for radio controlled targets will display, for identification purposes, while in or in the vicinity of the danger area, the following markings:

(i) A large red flag at the masthead;

(ii) A painted canvas strip, 1.8 m (6 ft.) by .9 m (3 ft.) with red and white chequers in .3 m (1 ft.) squares, on the fore deck or cabin roof.

(c) Anti-aircraft firing.

This may be from guns, missiles or machine guns at a target towed by aircraft as in (b) above, a pilotless target aircraft, or at balloons or kites. Practice may take place from shore batteries or ships. Warning signals as a rule are shown from shore batteries; ships fly a red flag.

(d) Firing from shore batteries or ships at sea at fixed or floating targets. Warning signals usually shown as in (c).

(e) Firing at remote-controlled craft.

These craft are approximately 20.7 m (68 ft.) in length and carry not under command shapes and lights, as well as normal navigation lights. Exercises consisting of surface firing by ships, practice bombing, air to sea firing and rocket firing will be carried out against these craft or targets towed by them.

A control craft will keep visual and radar watch up to approximately 8 nautical miles and there will be cover from the air over a much greater range to ensure that other shipping will not be endangered.

 Warning signals, when given, usually consist of red flags by day and red fixed or red flashing lights at night. The absence of any such signal cannot, however, be accepted as evidence that a practice area does not exist. Warning signals are shown from shortly before practice commences until it ceases.

Ships and aircraft carrying out night exercises may illuminate with bright red or orange flares.

 CAUTION. A vessel may be aware of the existence of a practice area from Local Notices to Mariners or similar method of promulgation and by observing the warning signals of the practice. The Range Authorities are responsible for ensuring that there should be no risk of damage from falling shell-splinters, bullets, etc., to any vessel which may be in a practice area.

Except where stated under Employment, areas are only in use intermittently or over limited periods, and when it is intended that a firing practice and exercise area be used, this information willbe promulgated by local Canadian Coast Guard Marine Radio Broadcastsand may also be advertised in local newspapers. Maritime Command vessels are informed by Navigational Warning Messages CANHYDROLANT or CANHYDROPAC.

(a) The DND Sea area alphabetical identification designators in this Notice are used for marine purposes and are quoted in marine warning messages advertising the reservation of sea space for armed forces exercises. They are also shown in areas displayed on marine charts, however, not all areas are so displayed. Designators for marine areas on the West Coast are prefixed W ; those for areas in the Great Lakes are prefixed L ; those for the East Coast are not prefixed.

(b) Area descriptions

All bearings are true and those relating to arcs are from seaward. Miles are in nautical miles. Unless otherwise specified coordinates are based on North American Datum 1983 (NAD 83) which is equivalent to WGS 84.

(c) Employment abbreviations

The following abbreviations are used to indicate the employment of DND Exercise Areas:

A/A Anti-Aircraft Firing
Missile Surface to Air Missile Firing
S Surface Firing
S.ht Surface Firing High Trajectory
T Torpedo Firing
NF Non-Firing area for general purpose type exercise
A to A Air to Air Firing
A to S Air to Sea Firing
B Bombing
R Rocket Firing
A Non-Firing area for general purpose type air exercises
A/S.he Exercices anti-sous-marins comprenant l'emploi de projectiles explosifs
A/S Anti-Submarine Exercise including high explosive projectiles
SS Subsurface Exercises

The airspace identification numbers used in this Notice conform to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Standards for airspace designations.

The identification system consists of a three-part code as follows:

(a) The assigned national identification letters - Canada is CY;and

(b) The letter Rfor a restricted area or the letter Dfor a danger area; and

(c) A three-digit number which will identify the airspace. This number will also indicate the region of Canada within which the area is located according to the following criteria:

101 to 199 British Columbia
201 to 299 Alberta
301 to 399 Saskatchewan
401 to 499 Manitoba
501 to 599 Ontario
601 to 699 Québec
701 to 799 New Brunswick; Nova Scotia; Prince Edward Island; Newfoundland
801 to 899 Yukon Territory
901 to 999 Northwest Territories; Arctic Islands

EXAMPLE: CYD401

CY CY indicates Canada,
D Indicates Danger Area,
401 Indicates the assigned number of the area in Manitoba
7  Warning

The portion of WG (Diagram 14) enclosed by pecked lines is an active surface, sub-surface, air and torpedo firing/operations area which may also include use of active sonar. Operations are generally (though not exclusively) conducted from 0700-1730 Monday to Saturday during which times area WG is considered extremely hazardous to marine traffic. Additionally, any number of lit and unlit Mooring Buoys may be within Area WG at various locations throughout the year to be used for military purposes. These buoys may be placed, moved and/or removed without notice. Mariners are to exercise caution whenever transiting this area, and vessels are required to remain clear whenever WG is active. Area WG constitutes a defence establishment as defined in the National Defence Actto which the Defence Controlled Access Area Regulations apply.

Canadian Forces Maritime Experimental and Test Ranges (CFMETR) - Nanoose Bay, BC

The Canadian Forces Maritime Experimental and Test Ranges tests ship and aircraft systems and torpedoes launched by surface vessels, submarines, or aircraft. No explosives are used; however, a hazard exists due to the possibility of the torpedo homing on vessels and then the vessel being struck by the torpedo on its way to the surface.

Testing is usually carried out during daylight hours Monday to Saturday. During testing, area "WG" is "Active". Any vessel within the area will be required to clear or stop on demand from the "Winchelsea Island Control" or any of the range vessels or range helicopter. The positions of these coordinates are clearly marked on the diagram above.

A transit area 1,000 yards north of Winchelsea Island and 1,000 yards east of South Ballenas Island is recommended to enable mariners to transit safely around the active area. It also facilitates unimpeded access to marina facilities in Schooner Cove and Nanoose Bay. The active range area is clearly depicted on CHS charts 3512, 3456 and 3459 by means of pecked lines.

Additional information on active range hours or for safe transit through the area may be obtained from:

  1. Winchelsea Island Control at 1-888-221-1011 (next day's activity only);
  2. CFMETR Range Officer at 250-468-5002 (long range planning);
  3. Winchelsea Island Control VHF CH 10 or 16 (for safe transit area information when approaching Area "WG"). or
  4. CMB VHF 21B or Weather 3 (listen only, for active times)
  5. Notice to Shipping, Victoria MCTS Centre, 
    (250) 363-8904 
    E-mail: mcts@pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca

Area "WG" constitutes a "Defence Establishment" as defined in the National Defence Act to which the Defence Controlled Access Area Regulations apply. Vessels which do not comply with direction from either Winchelsea control or Range Patrol Vessels may be charged for trespassing.

Range vessels exhibit a flashing red light in addition to the prescribed lights and shapes. These vessels may operate outside of scheduled hours and should not be approached within 3,000 yards because they may be in a three-point moor with mooring lines extending to buoys 1,500 yards away. Additionally, lighted and unlighted mooring buoys are randomly located within the area. Mariners are advised to use caution when transiting this area during non-active range periods to avoid mooring buoys and lines.
