Authorized Person Program and Bulletins

The Authorized Person (AP) Program provides efficient licensing services for pilots and Flight Training Units. Its policies and standards are managed by Transport Canada Headquarters in Ottawa. The Regional Offices are responsible for training, evaluating, monitoring and approving Authorized Persons.

AP bulletins help the civil aviation community keep up to date with changes to standards, policies, procedures and guidelines. Bulletins remain in effect until cancelled, replaced or integrated into applicable guidance material.
