Calling all manufactures and maintenance members!

The CBAA 2023 Economic Impact Study has been launched. The overhauled information in the 2023 study will take the discourse to the next level. It will allow the CBAA, its members and the sector as a whole to use new, comprehensive data to take advantage of a window of opportunity, to inform and educate our Parliamentarians on the value of business aviation, with compelling and credible data. We are asking all manufactures and maintenance members to participate in this confidential and important survey


CVR/RIPs Global Exemption

The CBAA, with its industry partners, were instrumental in having the below exemption issued.

Here is NCR-005-2023 – The purpose of this exemption is to allow Canadian operators operating under Subparts 604, 702, 703, 704 and 705 of the CARs to continue operations without fully complying with the cockpit voice recorders (CVRs) and data link communications Regulations and Standards (reproduced in Appendix A of the enclosed exemption) coming into effect on May 29, 2023, as many operators need more time to retrofit aircraft or to acquire new aircraft to comply with the provisions coming into force. 

The aviation industry is experiencing delays in production, supply chains, and transportation, as well as labour shortages among manufacturers and installers of aircraft components. These delays, which are due in part to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, have resulted in longer lead times in the procurement and installation of the equipment (CVR, recorder independent power supplies (RIPS), and data-link recorders (DLR)) required to be installed and operational by May 29, 2023, pursuant to the coming into force of the above-mentioned provisions. CARs provisions: Subsection 605.34(1) and Paragraph 605.34(4)(c) 605.34.3

This exemption is in effect from May 29, 2023, until the earliest of the following: 

1.       a)  May 29, 2026, at 23:59 (EDT); or 

2.       b) the date on which the exemption is canceled in writing by the Minister where he is of the opinion that it is no longer in the public interest or is likely to adversely affect aviation safety or security.
