Sector Map

The sector map below shows the entire Reykjavik Control Area (CTA) and its neighbours. Both the BGGL and BIRD FIRs are combined to form the CTA, which is further split into sectors north, east, south and west. The CTA sectors are NOT the same as the FIR boundaries.

The radar corridor between Europe and North America is within the BIRD_CTR sectors. No position reports are required when under BIRD_CTR (but you still need oceanic clearance).
