Pursuant to Subsection 5.9(2) of the Aeronautics Act, and after having determined that the exemption is in the public interest and is not likely to affect aviation safety, I hereby exempt pilot-in-command of basic ultra-light aeroplanes from the requirements of paragraph 602.29(1)(c) of the Canadian Aviation Regulations (CARs). This exemption is subject to the following conditions.
Paragraph 602.29(1)(c) of the CARs stipulates that no person shall operate an ultra-light aeroplane in controlled airspace subject to paragraphs (2) and (3).
The purpose of this exemption is to allow the pilot-in-command of a basic ultra-light aeroplane to operate in any other Class E airspace not referred to in paragraphs 602.29(2)(a) or (b) of the CARs.
This exemption applies only to pilots-in-command of basic ultra-light aeroplanes.
This exemption is subject to the following conditions:
- For operation in Class E airspace, the basic ultra-light aeroplane shall be equipped with a portable or fixed altimeter;
- For operation on a cross country-flight in Class E airspace, the basic ultra-light aeroplane shall be equipped with a portable or fixed magnetic compass or Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver.
This exemption is in effect until the earliest of the following:
- On June 30th, 2011 at 23:59 (EST);
- The date on which any one of the conditions set out in this exemption is breached;
- The date on which an amendment to the appropriate provisions of the Canadian Aviation Regulations or related standards comes into effect; or
- The date on which this exemption is cancelled in writing by the Minister, where he is of the opinion that the exemption is no longer in the public interest, or that it is likely to affect on aviation safety.
Dated at Ottawa, Ontario, Canada this 15 day of Feb. 2010, on behalf of the Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities.
