Pursuant to subsection 5.9(2) of the Aeronautics Act, and after taking into account that the exemption is in the public interest and is not likely to affect aviation safety, I hereby exempt all persons operating an aeroplane for flight training and pilot testing from the requirements set out in paragraph 425.23(1)(b) of the Flight Training Standard made pursuant to Section 405.23 of the Canadian Aviation Regulations, subject to the following condition.
Section 405.23 of the Canadian Aviation Regulations states that no person shall operate a training aircraft unless the aircraft meets the personnel licensing standards.
Paragraph 425.23(1)(b) of the Flight Training Standard states that an aircraft that is used for flight training shall in the case of an aeroplane, be equipped with a turn and slip indicator or a turn coordinator.
The purpose of this exemption is to permit persons operating an aeroplane for flight training and pilot testing on aeroplanes, which are not equipped with a turn and slip indicator or turn coordinator, but which have an alternate means of displaying (e.g. glass-cockpit primary flight display), the rate of turn and the indication of slip.
This exemption applies to all persons operating an aeroplane for flight training and pilot testing in accordance with Subpart IV of the Canadian Aviation Regulations.
This exemption is subject to the following condition:
- Persons shall not operate an aeroplane for pilot testing which is not equipped with a turn and slip indicator or turn coordinator on a flight test for the commercial pilot licence – aeroplane, during the assessment of limited panel skills (exercises 24B and 24C).
This exemption is in effect from November 1, 2008 until the earliest of the following:
- 11:59 EST on April 30, 2010;
- the date on which any condition set out in this exemption is breached; or
- the date on which this exemption is cancelled in writing by the Minister where he is of the opinion that it is no longer in the public interest or is likely to affect aviation safety.
Dated at Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, this 30th day of October, 2008, on behalf of the Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities.
