The Calgary Airport Authority and its many partners have developed an airport familiarization program for individuals who would benefit from becoming familiar with airport processes and procedures from curb to gate, prior to their actual flight.
YYC Navigators is tailored to meet these needs for families who are affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). As airport processes are unfamiliar for many, and some families are unsure if they can travel due to sensory and communication challenges, many choose to not travel by air. By giving families affected by ASD the opportunity to become more familiar with airport processes, flying can be a more pleasant and viable option.
Thank you so much for your interest in YYC Navigators! Due to a tremendous response, registration for the 2017 edition of YYC Navigators is completely full. We will accommodate as many applicants as possible and all those who applied will be notified no later than May 3, 2017.
We look forward to working with our partners to bring the program back in 2018. Thank you again for your interest.
