ATS Services Limited is a Canadian owned company specializing in air traffic services, meteorological observations, the sales of meteorological instrumentation sales as well as a variety of related training programs. ATS represents several world-class manufacturers of state of the art meteorological instrumentation, which allows ATS to provide a range of professional grade, reliable, sensors and systems. To compliment and support the services and systems provided by our company, ATS also provides a wide range of training programs available at our training centers or at your location.



ATS was established in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories in 1998 and incorporated in 2000. ATS’s beginnings were with a single operation at the Fort Smith Community Aerodrome Radio Station providing a regimen of aviation communications and meteorological observing services.

ATS has continued to expand over the years to include over 60 similar operations, coast to coast to coast. These services are provided to NavCanada and government agencies, as well as the mining sector, oil and gas sector, and private airport operators.

Responding to meteorological instrumentation and services needs in the United States, ATS established a sister company, ATS Meteorology USA, incorporated in 2012. We are proud to provide organizations such as NOAA, NASA, USAF, and universities with world-class instrumentation.



ATS believes that in order to effectively manage aviation communication and meteorological services, management staff must be fully trained and certified operators who fully understand every aspect of the industry. As a result, our corporate staff brings decades of broad and progressive air traffic and meteorological skills, operational and management experience.



Aviation communications and meteorological services are what our company does best. We believe that safe and consistent air traffic service and meteorological operations is a full time job. Since our inception in 1998, we have been dedicated to providing continuous and reliable services, at standards that are second to none.



ATS provides the highest quality training programs designed to meet specific training needs, to be delivered on location or at our regional training centers, maximizing relevancy, minimizing operational down time and reducing training costs.

Through our highly qualified training staff and the latest in technology, ATS is continually working towards improved training, which ultimately equates to improved safety.
