Controller: James White

"Very compentent and friendly controller. Requested a SRA 18 CYWG. The controller told me that he never did this approach before. His vecoring was very precise and professional. On top of that the whole ACT (CTR and DEP) was very friendly and well trained - they made possible what ever I requested. Love to come back! :)"

Controller: James White

"Just was great! Flew through the airspace on a flight from YYC to YYZ and had him up the whole time. Winnipeg may not be the busiest airspace on VATSIM but it's very nice to fly through."

Controller: Justin

"I just want to say a huge thank you to all controllers in the Winnipeg FIR for your professional, friendly and helpful service. Keep up the great work and I look forward to many more flights in and out of Winnipeg and Manitoba."

Controller: Nate Power

"Honestly - thank you so much for an awesome, low pressure, SUPER HELPFUL, first time on VATSIM. I kept screwing up and Tavis talked me through it. Keep on being awesome!"

Controller: Tavis Harrison

"Always a pleasure to be in your airspace Sir. You're 'Canadian' polite, easy to understand and patient."

Controller: Nate Power

"Thanks for the help, even though I didn't talk to you much, you were a big help! :D"

Controller: Joshua Ettinger

"I was performing my first flight ever on a network and when almost at T/D, the controller went online. At first, I was scared and nervous but Justin was very clear with the messages and safely guided me to the ground. Huge thanks to him and all the best to people of Winnipeg FIR!"

Controller: Justin

"Very good controller, managed to handle all that traffic! Very impressive."

Controller: Luke Wightman

"I was very pleased that Winnipeg was picked as an arrival airport for CTP. I know the CZWG staff and controllers have been working very had with the FIR and I hope that their efforts will be rewarded. Unfortunately it is not the most travelled area in the world and I'm sure that does not help matters. I know some addon scenery will be worked on soon so hopefully that will help and encourage pilots to fly there. Your briefing was excellent as well but I was most impressed that you even went as far as arranging to have add-on scenery available for FSX/P3D pilots! What a great example of going above and beyond! Thank you and keep up the great work!"

Controller: Tavis Harrison

"Great attitude! Keep the good work up."

Controller: Dylan

"I have completed a few flights on the network and Justin was very friendly and patient with everyone flying through the Winnipeg sector. 10/10 will recommend and fly through the sector again."

Controller: Justin

"Even though I was stumbling all over my ground communication today, Kathryn was very professional, friendly and patient! :-)"

Controller: Kathryn

"Very professional and friendly service. Thank you for being online on a Sunday evening!"

Controller: Dylan

"Great controller he is fast and great Thanks for your service."

Controller: Dylan

"Great controller, very professional. As a new pilot I appreciated the help. Thanks for making flying in Canada fun and keep up the good work. :)"

Controller: Dylan

"Professional and very friendly."

Controller: Benjamin Cook

"Absolutely one of the most professional controllers, all while being relaxed and fun to fly with. Wasn't monotoned or aggressive, but rather kind, caring, and one helluva controller. Props! :)"

Controller: Zachary Collison

"Thanks for being on early in the morning for our Deltapalooza event, and well done handling the traffic!"

Controller: Zachary Collison

"What a controller, very helpful and facilitating to help me test a new CPDLC client, helped us find a bug and was very happy for CPDLC to be used very chirpy and happy. Great job man. appreciate it"

Controller: Ryan Miltenberger

"Kathryn was very accommodating and came online with minimal traffic just in time for arrival. Kathryn was also hospitable for one of my few times out of VATUSA airspace and we'll certainly try to go out of our way to CYWG in the future!"

Controller: Kathryn

"Excellent work, provided instructions and advisories clearly allowing for a quick departure. It was my first time flying out of Winnipeg and this controller made it as easy as it could be."

Controller: Kathryn

"VATSIM has a tendency to simplify many real world procedures for the simple fact that most on the network have little or no real world experience to bank on. However, every now and then a facility introduces a less-familiar procedure which can greatly improve the enjoyment of an event. Winnipeg FIR, and Zachary in particular, did so tonight running Winnipeg Pad Control during the FNO. When I heard discussion on the ground frequency of de-ice procedures in effect, I figured I'd give it a go and see what was happening. Much to my surprise, all communications, procedures and operations were being conducted. I de-iced in YYZ real-world a few days ago, and there was no difference between those communications and those tonight. Zachary spoke like a seasoned veteran with experience de-icing aircraft and even took time to explain procedures and different fluids to newer pilots who were unfamiliar. This realistic and fun learning experience, with a positive attitude, made my night, and certainly makes me want to return to YWG again."

Controller: Zachary Collison

"Very nice and easy with pilots!"
