CBAA Weekly Update: Board of Directors Meeting on your Behalf

Earlier this week, CBAA’s board of directors met in Montreal, QC. Their discussions centered on initiatives and programs aimed at strengthening support for our members and championing the voice of business aviation in Canada.
The CBAA Board is committed to advancing safety, business opportunities and reducing red tape. Our goal is to keep Canadian business flying into the future.
Thank you to our Board for their support!
Member Input - New Proposed Victim & Family Requirements for Air and Airport Operators
Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) is seeking input from the aviation industry on the provision of assistance to aircraft accident victims and their families in response to an ICAO requirement that Canada needs to consider.  Input is being sought via the consultation paper titled Victim and Family Assistance Requirements for Air Operators and Airport Operators.
Important note for CBAA members – TCCA’s preliminary assessment of options suggests that requirements may apply to CAR 704 commuter operators and airline operators (705). Transport Canada is also assessing the pros and cons of including air taxi operators (703) and private operators (604)
Although we are reviewing the paper on behalf of members, to contribute to the upcoming CARAC discussion, we are seeking operator member input to provide a consolidated response to TCCA.
To facilitate your input, we have summarized the questions to be addressed at this link. Please submit your contribution to this important consultation by Friday, December 1st, 2023. Your contributions will be kept anonymous.
