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 adversely affect aviation safety, I hereby exempt pilots (hereinafter “the pilot”) who hold a valid United Arab Emirates Military pilot licence and appropriate medical certificate while acting on behalf of the government of the United Arab Emirates, from the requirements prescribed in subsection 401.03(1) of the Canadian Aviation Regulations (CARs), when receiving type rating training and Surveillance flight training on DH8 (Dash 8) type aeroplanes owned and operated by PAL Aerospace Ltd., P.O. Box 29030, Hangar 4, St. John’s International Airport, St. John’s Newfoundland, A1A 5B5, subject to the conditions prescribed below.
Subsection 401.03(1) stipulates thatsubject to subsection (2), no person shall act as a flight crew member or exercise the privileges of a flight crew permit, licence or rating unless
the person holds the appropriate permit, or rating;
the permit, licence or rating is valid;
the person holds the appropriate medical certificate; and
the person can produce the permit, licence or rating, and the certificate, when exercising those privileges.
This exemption authorizes “pilots who hold a valid United Arab Emirates Military pilot licence and appropriate medical certificate”, while acting on behalf of the government of the United Arab Emirates, to exercise the privileges of a flight crew member in a Canadian registered DH8 aeroplane, while receiving type rating training and Surveillance flight training with PAL Aerospace Ltd., without having a civilian flight crew permit, licence or rating or foreign licence validation certificate. This exemption provides more time to PAL Aerospace Ltd. to complete the training they contracted out from the United Arab Emirates military.
This exemption applies to a pilot who holds a valid United Arab Emirates Military pilot licence and a valid Medical Certificate when receiving type rating training and Surveillance flight training conducted by PAL Aerospace Training Captains on DH8 aeroplanes owned and operated by PAL Aerospace Ltd., St. John’s Newfoundland.

The pilot shall hold a valid United Arab Emirates military pilot licence and a valid Medical Certificate.
The pilot shall be trained to meet PPC requirements in accordance with PAL Aerospace Ltd. Company Operations Manual (COM).
The pilot shall act as First Officer only.
The pilot-in-command duties shall be exercised at all times by PAL Aerospace Ltd. training Captains.
The flight must be operated in accordance with the guidelines of Level B Captain and First Officer flight training for low level Maritime Surveillance and SAR techniques set out in the PAL Aerospace Ltd. Flight Operations Training Manual (FOTM).
Only essential flight crew members necessary for the purpose of the Surveillance flight training shall be carried on board.
In the case of a flight conducted outside the Canadian airspace, PAL Aerospace Ltd. shall prior to entry into a foreign territory obtain the appropriate authority by the Civil Aviation authority of the state whose territory is being entered.
- The pilot shall carry a copy of this exemption while operating the DH8 aeroplane and the exemption shall form part of the licensing documents carried by the pilot.
This exemption is in effect until the earliest of:
December 31, 2015 at 23:59 (EST);
b) the date on which any condition set out in this exemption is breached; or
c) the date on which this exemption is canceled in writing by the Minister where she is of the opinion that it is no longer in the public interest or is likely to adversely affect aviation safety.
