Re-issuance of NCR-058-2021 COVID-19

NCR-007-2022 During recent internal and external consultation with industry stakeholders, it was deemed that the issues of flight crew members training with head and/or face worn devices was still a concern leading to this exemption being renewed.

The purpose of this exemption is to provide temporary measures in the public interest in response to travel restrictions and other impediments that air operators are encountering in the training of flight crew members following the declaration of a pandemic outbreak of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) by the World Health Organization (WHO) on March 11, 2020.

This exemption is to authorize Canadian operators to defer the requirement for flight crew members to perform hands-on practical drills using head or face covering emergency equipment such as quick donning oxygen masks during annual training only.

This exemption does not permit the operator to reduce the content in its approved flight crew member annual training program. The performance of the required hands-on practical drills shall either be completed within the validity period of the annual training or deferred for successful completion later by each flight crew member.

RPAS-002-2022

The purpose of this exemption is to fix an unintended consequence of the way the Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) regulations were drafted that is creating an administrative issue preventing foreign operators and foreign pilots from conducting RPAS activities within the RPAS regulatory framework. This exemption will be beneficial for a large number of international tourists, post-secondary education students, and researchers coming to Canada.

Part IX of the CARs requires every RPA between 250g and 25 kg to be registered in order to be flown in Canada. However, foreign RPAS operators and pilots are not able to register RPA, despite being able to fly in Canada when using a Special Flight Operations Certificate (SFOC). This creates an administrative issue that does not impact safety.

The purpose of this exemption is to enable a foreign operator or pilot (as described in paragraph 903.01(c) of the CARs) who does not qualify to be the registered owner of a RPA, as per subsection 901.04(1) of the CARs, to operate an RPAS without having their aircraft registered according to Division II – Registration of Remotely Piloted Aircraft.

This exemption aligns small RPA (250 g to 25 kg) with how Transport Canada permits operations of large (> 25kg) RPA, which do not require registration, for a person that does not qualify to be the registered owner of an RPA.

This exemption will allow students enrolled in Commercial Pilot Integrated Courses to delay completion of their courses beyond the regulatory time limits for a period ending October 31st, 2026. Many enrolled students will not be able to return to the FTUs for many months to complete their Commercial Pilot Integrated training. This five-year exemption will also allow time to process an amendment of standard 426.75 to remove the time-limit restrictions which have been a recurring irritant since promulgation in 2006. This exemption extends the regulatory relief previously granted under exemption NCR-070-2020.

In the majority of cases throughout the CARs and related standards, the term “manufacturer” is used when in fact “type certificate holder” is implied. Thus, the purpose of this exemption is to exempt a person who manufactures an aircraft, a person who owns an aircraft that obtains an authorization to attach an aircraft identification plate or a person who operates an aircraft in flight from paragraph 201.01(4)(a) of the CARs. This exemption is implementing the regulatory intent of NPA 2004-087. By doing so, the administrative burden of having to re-identify the manufacturer (currently defined as being the holder of a type certificate for an aeronautical product) on the aircraft identification plate upon change of type certificate ownership or upon a request to install an aircraft identification plate, is alleviated. This exemption also permits aircraft identification plates for new aircraft to be marked with the name of the “maker of the aeronautical product” in lieu of the holder of the aircraft type certificate.

Aircraft model: BD-700-1A10 & BD-700-1A11
Registration no.: n/a
The purpose of this exemption is to allow the changed Bombardier model BD-700-1A10 (Global Express) and BD-700-1A11 (Global 5000) aeroplanes with the Global Vision Flight Deck (GVFD) modification at the Version 3.2 (v.3.2) configuration to be certificated without a finding of compliance with AWM 525.1301 and AWM 525.1309 at the time of certification. The application of RTCA DO-254 is an acceptable means of demonstrating compliance to AWM 525.1301, and RTCA DO-178B is an acceptable means of demonstrating compliance to AWM 525.1309; however Bombardier has not completed the process prescribed by these standards for this v.3.2 configuration. The Global Vision Flight Deck (GVFD) is a change to the type designs of the Bombardier models BD-700-1A10 and BD-700-1A11, which were previously type certificated under Type Certificate Data Sheet A-177. The change involves replacing one avionics suite with another from another manufacturer. The GVFD designation for the BD-700-1A10 and BD-700-1A11 is a commercial designation for aeroplanes on which Major modification numbers TS533145 and TS000145 (for BD-700-1A10), or SO533145 and TS000145 (for BD-700-1A11) have been embodied. This exemption allows Bombardier to obtain a revised Type Certificate for the changed type design, and subsequently obtain standard Certificates of Airworthiness in order to deliver aeroplanes with the GVFD v.3.2 configuration to completion centres (subject to the Airplane Flight Manual (AFM) limitations for v.3.2 configuration and the conditions imposed in this exemption). Once aircraft are delivered and responsibility transferred, the STC work required to complete the aeroplane can commence (STCs approved and installed for interiors and other custom work common to large business jets). Bombardier intends to replace GVFD v.3.2 configuration in Global Express and Global 5000 aircraft models with an updated configuration at a later date. The updated configuration is expected to be demonstrated to be fully compliant with AWM 525.1301 and AWM 525.1309. This exemption only applies to the v.3.2 configuration; it does not apply to any other version or configuration. The AFM limitations imposed on aircraft operation with the GVFD v.3.2 configuration combined with the conditions imposed in this exemption are expected to drive all operators to implement the GVFD upgrade and displace the v.3.2 configuration from the operating fleet shortly after the updated and approved GVFD configuration is made available

This exemption allows NAV CANADA air traffic controllers to issue a clearance that will allow Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) aircraft to fly with 50 nm lateral spacing based on certain aircraft navigation performance capability that employs the use of long-range Inertial Navigation System (INS) and the Global Navigation Satellite System where those aircraft are certified to operate based on an RNP 10 or RNP 4 capability. The RNP 10, 50 nm standard is an International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) approved standard and is also in use by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for operations between flights at the same altitude on the Pacific Ocean, in Alaska and in Australian airspace. Use of this criterion in Canada allows the continuation of this separation standard between Canada and the United States in areas where our mutual boundary exists in Northern Canada with Alaska. Presently, an exemption exists for NAV CANADA to accept RNP 10, 50 nm separated aircraft arriving off the Pacific Ocean into Canadian Domestic Airspace in the Vancouver Flight Information Region (FIR).

Specifically, this exemption authorizes NAV CANADA air traffic controllers to issue a clearance that enables Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) aeroplanes to fly with 50 nm lateral spacing based on certain aircraft navigation performance capability that employs long-range Inertial Navigation System (INS) and the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), where those aeroplanes are certified to operate based on an RNP 10 or RNP 4 capability. The RNP 10 (50 nm lateral spacing standard) is an International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) approved standard and is also in use by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for operations between aeroplanes at the same altitude on the Pacific Ocean, in Alaska and Australian airspace. By using this criterion in Canada it will harmonize this separation standard between Canada and the United States in areas where our mutual boundary exists in Northern Canada with Alaska. Presently, a ministerial exemption exists for NAV CANADA to accept RNP 10 (50 nm) separated aeroplanes arriving off the Pacific Ocean airspace into Canadian domestic airspace in the Vancouver Flight Information Region (FIR).

The purpose of this exemption is to permit pilot training in Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) procedures utilizing an ATC 810 or AST 300 FTD, Level 2 Flight Training Device (FTD) which do not meet, in its totality, the requirements of Aeroplane and Rotorcraft Simulator Manual (TP 9685), specifically those of Chapter 4, Appendix 4A, paragraph 2.f. and Chapter 4, Appendix 4B, paragraph 3.2.C.9. The lack of oscillation in pitch, evident in the phugoid dynamic test, does not provide for negative learning of IFR procedures such as departure, enroute, holding, arrival, approach and emergency procedures. However, in the development of basic instrument flight skills, the devices are deemed unsuitable. Use of the devices for pilot training towards the private pilot licence (PPL), the VFR over-the-top (VFR OTT) and the night rating is not in the public interest. In recognition of the practice of training some radio navigation instrument procedures during pilot training towards the commercial pilot licence (CPL), a limited use of the devices for this purpose will be allowed.
