Pursuant to paragraph 704.01(c) of the Canadian Aviation Regulations (CARs) and after taking
into account that the authorization is in the public interest and is not likely to adversely affect aviation safety, I hereby authorize Private Air Inc., 2039 Derek Burney Drive, Thunder Bay Ontario, P7K 0A1 (hereinafter “Private Air “) to operate its Douglas DC3-TP67 aeroplanes under Subpart 704 of the CARs, notwithstanding that the maximum certified take-off weight (MCTOW) of the aeroplane exceeds the 8,618 kg (19,000 pounds) limit prescribed in paragraph 704.01(a) of the CARs, subject to the conditions set out below.
Section 704.01 of the CARs is set out in Appendix A to this authorization.
This authorization allows Private Air to operate its Douglas DC3-TP67 aeroplanes under Subpart 704 of the CARs notwithstanding that the MCTOW of the aeroplane exceeds the 8,618 kg (19.000 pounds) limit prescribed in paragraph 704.0 1(a) of the CARs.
This authorization applies to Private Air for the purposes of operating its Douglas DC3-TP67 aeroplanes under Subpart 704 of the CARs.
Commercial Air Service must be limited to “on-demand” charter operations as defined in CAR Standard 724 — Commuter Operations — Aeroplanes, Division I. This authorization does not apply to scheduled commuter operations.
This authorization is subject to the following conditions:
The pilot-in-command of the aeroplane shall ensure that, prior to each flight or series of flight segments, the crew members of the aeroplane are given a pre-flight briefing that includes the fo1lowing:
anticipated flight conditions;
- any additional information necessary for the flight including information respecting unserviceable equipment or abnormalities that may affect passengers.
No person shall be admitted to the flight deck of the aeroplane other than:
a flight crew member;
a crew member performing their duties;
an inspector referred to in subsection 704.2 1(1);
in accordance with the procedures specified in the company operations manual;
an employee of the air operator who is not a crew member performing their duties; and
a pilot, flight engineer, flight attendant or cabin crew member employed by a wholly owned subsidiary or a code share partner of the air operator; and
a person who has expertise related to the aeroplane, its equipment or its crew members and who is required to be on the flight deck to provide a service to the air operator.
No person shall conduct a take-off in the aeroplane unless one unit of protective breathing equipment with a 15 minute portable supply of breathing gas at a pressure-altitude of 8,000 feet is available
at at the entry into each Class A or B cargo compartment accessible to crew members during flight; and
- at the site of each hand-held fire extinguisher.
No person shall operate the aeroplane unless hand-held fire extinguishers meeting the following requirements are carried:
at least one shall be conveniently located on the flight deck and readily accessible for use by the flight crew members;
at least one shall be readily accessible for immediate use in each Class A or Class B cargo compartment that is accessible to crew members in flight; and
if passengers are carried, at least two shall be readily accessible for immediate use and uniformly distributed in the passenger compartment.
The air operator shall assign a cabin crew member to all passenger-carrying flights to fulfill the passenger safety responsibilities under Sections 704.33 and 704.34 of the CARs and associated Commercial Air Service Standards (CASS).
When a hand-held fire extinguisher is stowed in a bin or compartment, the bin or compartment shall be clearly marked as containing a hand-held fire extinguisher.
The air operator shall provide a cabin safety inspector who is performing an in-flight cabin inspection with a confirmed passenger seat in the passenger compartment that is most suitable to perform the inspector’s duties, as determined by the inspector.
Each cabin crew member shall, for take-off and landing, occupy a seat in the passenger compartment that meets the following requirements:
The cabin crew member seat shall:
be located in the passenger compartment near a required floor level emergency exit or, because of exit type and distribution or the access to the communication system, at some other approved exit;
to the extent possible, without compromising proximity to a required floor level emergency exit, be located to provide a direct view of the cabin area for which the cabin crew member is responsible to exercise aural and visual supervision of the passengers;
be positioned so that the seat will not interfere with the use of a passageway or exit when the seat is not in use;
be equipped with a restraint system consisting of a combined safety belt and shoulder harness unit;
provide access to the communication system when the cabin crew member is seated; and
be located to minimize the probability that occupants would suffer injury by being struck by items dislodged from service areas, stowage compartments or service equipment. Secondary latching mechanisms shall be used to prevent items from being dislodged.
The aeroplane shall be equipped with either a forward or rearward facing seat designed to at least the inertial load factors established under the original type certification basis of the aeroplane. The seat shall provide an energy absorbing rest to support the arms, shoulders, head, and spine.
There shall be means to secure each restraint system when not in use to prevent interference with rapid egress in an emergency.
The selection of the cabin crew member seat shall consider the air operator’s emergency procedures for the aeroplane type/model as well as conditions imposed during the original type certification of the aeroplane.
No person shall operate the aeroplane unless the aeroplane is equipped with:
a placard on each door that provides passenger access to a passenger emergency exit, stating that the door must be secured or locked open during take-off and landing; and
a means for the crew, in an emergency, to unlock each door that leads to a compartment that is normally accessible to passengers and that can be locked by passengers.
No person shall operate the aeroplane unless:
a readily visible sign that clearly displays a symbol indicating that smoking is prohibited or the words “No Smoking” and “Defense de fumer” is installed above the door handle on both sides of the door to each lavatory in the aeroplane.
a readily visible sign that clearly displays a symbol indicating that cigarette disposal is prohibited or the words “No Cigarette Disposal” and “Defense de jeter des cigarettes” is installed adjacent to the opening of each waste disposal receptacle that is located in a lavatory in the aeroplane; and
- a self-contained, removable ashtray is installed on or near the outside of the door to each lavatory in the aeroplane or in some other location or locations where it is readily visible to the users of each lavatory from outside the lavatory.
No person shall operate the aeroplane with passengers on board unless the aeroplane is equipped with an interphone system that:
can be operated independently of the public address system, except for handsets, headsets, microphones, selector switches and signalling devices;
provides a means of two—way communication between the flight deck cornpartment and each passenger compartment;
is accessible for immediate use from each crew member station in the flight deck compartment; and
is accessible for use from the cabin crew member seat.
No person shall operate the aeroplane with passengers on board unless the aeroplane is equipped with a public address system that:
can be operated independently of the interphone system, except for handsets, headsets, microphones, selector switches and signalling devices;
is accessible for immediate use from each crew member station in the flight deck compartment;
has a microphone that is readily accessible to the seated cabin crew member;
is capable of operation within 10 seconds from the time a microphone is removed from its stowage; and
is intelligible at all passenger seats, lavatories and cabin crew member seats and work stations.
Notwithstanding condition 12(c), where the cabin crew member can communicate orally with all passengers, no public address system access is required for the cabin crew member.
The air operator shall not permit a person to act - and no person shall act - as a cabin crew member on board the aeroplane unless the person has successfully completed the air operator’s training program as set out in conditions 15 and 16 or equivalent training that meets the requirements of condition 17.
The air operator shall establish and maintain a training program in respect of cabin crew members that is approved by the Minister in accordance with section 704. 115 of the CARs and in accordance with the elements of the TP 12296, Flight Attendant Training Standard —
