After the first technical level meeting held on 604 regulations this past May, TC is engaging with the CBAA in a meaningful way to address outstanding issues.  To deal with immediate concerns, TC is open to a “limited” extension applicable to small operators (likely operators with three aircraft or less), and looking at delegations for specific items.  At this point, CBAA has determined that the best interest of members regarding CAR 604 implementation and compliance will be more readily achieved by:

  • Extending the exemption where required;
  • Delegating special authorization approvals to an authorized person;
  • Making an administrative amendment to CAR 604;
  • Providing comprehensive guidance material that helps identify minimum compliance requirements; and
  • The CBAA providing a template Operations Manual that documents how to achieve minimum compliance
