Don't forget the two aprons.

Apron I - 121.3
Apron II - 129.7

The grand opening celebrations/festivities are this weekend. The runway opens for air traffic on 2014-06-28.

Not used to seeing planes landing in Calgary on 2 different north/south runways. Haven't been to the airport to watch since 35R/17L opened. But do hear the odd plane not turning on the right taxi way. Lot of pilots commenting on the lighting on the new runway.

East Tower frequency

In the posting above, the east tower frequency is 118.875. The RR Database indicates a frequency of 118.87. This is the often mentioned frequency when handing off planes. However, 118.87 does not show up in a Radio Frequency search on IC [or whatever it is called today]. In listening today from a distance, I could not hear anything on 118.87, but did hear them on 118.875. Should the RR Database be updated?

Fixed.

Thanks for spotting that.

Generally the trailing 5 is dropped when the frequency is read out over the air. Looks like somebody not familiar with this practice submitted the frequency to the database.

Having spent some time at the YYC airport over the past couple of months and getting ready for encryption of more services, I have heard planes at YYC referred to frequency 118.7. This frequency was licensed in 2016 May and shows as Tower 2. Doing some listening today, it appears to be simulcast with 118.4.

Still hearing activity on 118.7. Last night both 118.4 and 118.7 were being used at the airport with 118.7 being used for landings on 17R. Can anyone else confirm this?

Can confirm, 118.7 is east tower and 118.4 is west tower.
