Welcome to the CBAA Minimum Equipment Lists (MEL) Delegation page

We are pleased to announce that the MEL delegate is Ed Ratzlaff, President of Aerofoil Consulting who brings years of experience in safety, quality, and management systems to the role, and has the expertise and knowledge to review the highly technical documentation related to MELs. 

   In the interest of simplifying business aviation the application process has been revised and applicants should now contact Aerofoil directly at or 204-479-0594.

We are aiming for a six-week turn around time (TC approvals can take up to a year!) with one caveat:  This is a pilot project and actual processing times may vary due to workload and unforeseen circumstances.
