ICAO Local Runway Safety Team handbook

In line with its ongoing cooperative efforts to resolve what remains the number one priority for global aviation safety experts, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has released a new Runway Safety Implementation Kit (iKit), developed in collaboration with IATA, ACI, CANSO, ICCAIA, FSF, IFALPA, IFATCA, IBAC, IAOPA, FAA, EASA and EUROCONTROL.

Fox Harbour action dismissed against CBAA

The CBAA has received a full and final release, without qualification or limitation, from legal action stemming from the November 11, 2007 accident at Fox Harbour, NS. Without this claim, the government’s Regulatory Impact Assessment Statement that guided the new 604 regulations and included Fox Harbour, is irrelevant and should be amended.
