Operator Resource Centre (23)
The Operator Resource Centre is currently under construction and plans to be your one stop shop for all your operator needs. Here you will find required documents, important operator bulletins and more. Check back often for the most up to date information.
In late 1998, the Canadian Business Aviation Association (CBAA) embarked on a collaborative project with Transport Canada to transfer administration and management responsibilities surrounding CAR 604 from Transport Canada to CBAA. This would ensure that business aviation received the proper attention by a team of qualified staff, aiding in fulfilling business aviation’s purpose as a business tool and economic enabler. On March 26, 2010, the Transport Minister announced that the Private Operator Certificate (POC) program would be repatriated by Transport Canada on April 1, 2011.For all information relating to the transition process, please visit the Certification and Inspection section.

The current Contract Weather Office (CWO) facilities and meteorological compound at the North Bay Airport are no longer suitable. In place of the 24-hour CWO operations NAV CANADA is proposing that the Flight Service Station (FSS) be responsible for aviation weather observations (METAR/SPECI) during their 16 hours of operation (1130-0330Z‡) (6:30 – 22:30 local) and that an Automated Weather Observation System (AWOS) be installed to provide aviation weather observations for the 8 hours overnight when the FSS is closed (0330Z – 1130Z‡) (22:30 - 06:30 local).
The AWOS installation would include weather cameras for viewing weather conditions at the airport during daylight hours and a voice generator sub-system for VHF broadcast of the weather data including real-time wind and altimeter. In this way the current aviation weather services provided at North Bay - 24-hour METAR/SPECI and the 24-hour aerodrome forecast (TAF) - will be maintained.
IMPLEMENTATION DATE/TIME: a NEW GoMex route structure will be implemented on 10 January 2013 at approximately 0630 UTC. The NEW route structure is based on application of 50 NM lateral separation between aircraft authorized RNP 10 (minimum) or RNP 4.
OPERATOR RESPONSIBILITIES. Operators are expected to obtain RNP 10 or RNP 4 authorization from the appropriate State (country) authority. Aircraft equipped with a SINGLE LONG RANGE NAVIGATION SYSTEM can qualify for RNP 10 for GoMex operations. JOB AIDS are posted on the GoMex Project WEBPAGE:
