Transport Canada Air Safety Campaign - “Ready for Take-Off"

Transport Canada recently launched a three-year Air Safety Campaign titled “Ready for Take-Off” (see references 1 & 2). This campaign, originally planned for 2020 was delayed due to the pandemic, is to address the Transportation Safety Board’s recommendation A19-02 from the TSB report A15H0001, which is to “collaborate with industry associations to develop strategies, education products, and tools to help air-taxi operators and their clients eliminate the acceptance of unsafe practices.”

The campaign builds on the success of the General Aviation Safety Campaign (GASC) with an integrated multi-year approach that includes:

·         Statistics-gathering to support campaign objectives and effectiveness;

·         Facilitation of seminars and participation at association events; and

·         Developing safety promotion and education publications, as well as tools that support the elimination of unsafe practices in the air taxi sector.

Although the campaign is aimed at air carriers operating under the Canadian Aviation Regulations (CARs) 703 and some activities related to the Campaign may not apply to CAR 604 Business Aviation operations, the CBAA will participate with other associations given some operational similarities between CARs Part 7 and 604, and that some CBAA members also operate under Part 7.

Through active participation and engagement, the CBAA will support the development of best practices, safety promotion and awareness information that will serve the interest of our members.
