507.01 Application

Information Notes:

  1. (i) Nothing in these standards, or their associated regulations, relieves the operator of a Canadian aircraft from complying with local regulations when operating outside Canadian domestic airspace. 

  2. (ii) An aircraft for which the Minister has issued a certificate of airworthiness, is considered to be fully in compliance with Article 31 of the ICAO Convention, hence meeting the code established in Annex 8 by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO). Aircraft meeting this code can be flown without, in regard to airworthiness, further approval, in the airspace of any participating ICAO State. Conversely, an aircraft, for which a special certificate of airworthiness or a flight permit is issued by the Minister, is not considered to be in compliance with all requirements of the code of ICAO - Annex 8, and cannot be flown in the airspace of another country without special authorisation by the civil aviation authority of the other country. 

507.02 Issue of a Certificate of Airworthiness

  1. (1) A Certificate of Airworthiness (C of A) shall be issued for an aircraft which fully complies with all standards of airworthiness for aeroplanes in the normal, utility, aerobatic, commuter and transport category, rotorcraft in the normal and transport category, glider, powered glider, airship, or manned free balloon, as applicable.
    (amended 1999/06/01)

  2. Information Notes:

    1. (i) The C of A is transferable with the aircraft when sold or leased, providing the aircraft remains a Canadian registered aircraft.

    2. (ii) The C of A also provides an indication of the aircraft compliance status in respect of the noise limitations specified in Chapter 516 of this manual.

    3. (iii) When applying for a C of A it is advisable for the owner to have, or obtain a copy of the applicable type certificate data sheets. A copy of the data sheets can be obtained from the type certificate holder.

    4. (iv) Very Light Aeroplanes (VLA), certified to VLA standards, are included in the normal or utility category.
      (amended 1999/06/01)

  3. (2) Where the application is made in respect of an aircraft for which an export airworthiness certificate (EAC) has been obtained, the applicant shall ensure that the aircraft:

    1. (a) is eligible for Canadian registration and a certificate of airworthiness;

    2. (b) is being imported as a complete aircraft;

    3. (c) has the manufacturer's identification plates, or equivalent markings, attached to the aircraft, engine(s), and propeller(s) as required by CAR 201.

  4. (3) Where the application is made in respect of an aircraft for which the last permanent flight authority issued was a Special Certificate of Airworthiness - Owner-maintenance, in addition to subsection (1), the following requirements shall be met: 
    (amended 2002/03/01)

Appendix E - Additional Guidelines Respecting the Application for a Flight Authority

Content last revised: 1996/10/10

  1. Pursuant to CAR 605.92, technical records (which include the journey log) are required for all Canadian registered aircraft. In the case of an aircraft manufactured in Canada, the technical records shall be assigned for the first flight as soon as the aircraft is certified to be in a condition for safe flight by an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (AME), or an authorised inspector of an approved company, or the builder of an amateur-built aircraft. The technical records shall be used from the first flight of an aircraft even if the aircraft is to be operated by the manufacturer prior to sale. The hours flown on a new aircraft will be transferred from the technical records to Transport Canada form #24-0043 when application is made for a certificate of airworthiness.
  2. In the case of aircraft being imported into Canada, the owner shall assign aircraft technical records as soon as the aircraft reaches its import destination. The owner of the aircraft shall enter on the first page of each record the last two entries from the technical records which are being replaced. In the case of an aircraft which is inspected after arrival in Canada by a licensed AME, or an authorised inspector of an approved company, and has been brought to a state of conformity and a condition for safe operation, the work done and inspection performed shall be entered in the technical records. The hours shown on the technical records shall be transferred to Transport Canada form 24-0043 when applying for a certificate of airworthiness.
  3. Under normal circumstances a copy of maintenance manuals are made available, by the applicant, to Transport Canada personnel for their review. However, when an aircraft is the first of its type for which a certificate of airworthiness is being requested, the type certificate holder shall provide Transport Canada with seven copies of the aircraft maintenance manual.
  4. When applying for a certificate of airworthiness for aircraft being imported, in addition to ensuring that an aircraft is eligible for registration in Canada in accordance with CAR 202.16, it is the owner's responsibility to ensure that the aircraft being imported is de-registered in the exporting country, and that arrangements are made to have a copy of the de-registration papers, or other proof of deregistration, sent to the Transport Canada office to which the application for a Certificate of Registration is to be submitted.
  5. When an aircraft is being imported with an Export Airworthiness Certificate, the applicant is responsible for arranging for the original copy of the Export Airworthiness Certificate to be sent by the civil aviation authority of the exporting country directly to the Transport Canada office to which the application for a Canadian certificate of airworthiness is to be submitted.
  6. In the case of an aircraft being imported without an Export Airworthiness Certificate, the applicant is responsible for providing evidence that the aircraft has had a certificate of airworthiness, either by making available to the Transport Canada office the original of the certificate, or a copy of the certificate, or certification from a civil aviation authority to the effect that a certificate of airworthiness had been issued for the aircraft.
  7. The owner is fully responsible for all arrangements necessary to move the aircraft from the location from which delivery is to be made in the exporting country to a location in Canada where the aircraft is to be inspected or repaired as necessary preparatory to the submission of a request for a certificate of airworthiness.
  8. After an aircraft has been deregistered, special permission to fly the aircraft out of the country is required, unless it is to be transported by land or water. Arrangements for such permission shall be made by the importer with the appropriate office of the civil aviation authority of the exporting country.
  9. Information regarding the manner in which permission can be requested shall be provided by the exporter or obtained directly from the civil aviation authority of the exporting country. When required, Transport Canada personnel will refer the importer to the appropriate office of the civil aviation authority of the exporting country regarding permission to fly the aircraft out of the country.
  10. When an aircraft being imported has not yet been registered in Canada, it can be flown to Canada under a foreign flight authority, provided that flight authority is validated in accordance with the requirements of this Chapter. This validation will cover those portions of the flight from the Canadian border to the destination airport identified on the application. If the aircraft is to land at a location other than its final destination, for customs clearance or refuelling, information regarding such landings shall be included in the request for the validation - refer to Section 507.05.

Information Note:

It is important, due to the various categories of aircraft covered by a special certificate of airworthiness, that the applicant is fully conversant with the information and data they will be required to provide with their application. It is recommended that the applicants contact the Transport Canada regional or district office serving their geographic area, to obtain from an Airworthiness Inspector the information with regards to these requirements.

Appendix F - Standards Respecting Ex-military Aircraft

Content last revised: 1996/10/10

Information Notes:

(i) Over the past years, a number of ex-military aircraft, for which a type certificate was not issued, have been issued continuous flight permits for private non-commercial use under the provisions of the former Air Navigation Orders (ANO) Series II No. 3. 

(ii) With the publication of subchapter 507D of the Airworthiness Manual in 1991, privately registered aircraft for which a Canadian flight permit (Private) had been issued became eligible for the issue of a Special Certificate of Airworthiness - Limited. Ex-military aircraft imported since 1991 have been evaluated against the criteria set out in subchapter 507D, and Airworthiness Manual Advisory (AMA) 507D/2, in order to determine their eligibility for the issue of a flight authorisation. The eligibility criteria are now set out in this appendix.

(iii) As a result of changing political situations, a large quantity of ex-military aircraft which do not meet civil standards have become available for private use. The lack of technical knowledge with respect to their design standards and/or military specifications, and uneasy access to the responsible military or civil aviation authority for follow-on technical support, including the availability of spare parts, is a cause for major concern.

(iv) The prime reason for allowing ex-military aircraft to operate in Canada under a "Special Certificate of Airworthiness - Limited" is to afford the aviation public with the possibility to use these aeroplanes in special air events, and not necessarily for recreational purposes.

1. Definitions

For the purposes of this Appendix, the following definitions apply:

"Ex-military aircraft" - means an aircraft, designed for, constructed for and used by a military organisation (Canadian or foreign).

"Flight authority" - means a certificate of airworthiness, special certificate of airworthiness, or flight permit.

"High performance aeroplane" - means an aeroplane requiring a minimum crew of one pilot and having a VNE of 250 knots or greater, or a VSO of 80 knots or greater.

2. Eligibility

Eligibility of foreign ex-military aircraft for the issue of a "Special Certificate of Airworthiness - Limited" is limited to those aircraft that were produced over 30 years ago and for which continued airworthiness support is no longer provided by the manufacturer.

3. Exclusions

The following types of aircraft will not be eligible for the issue of a "Special Certificate of Airworthiness - Limited":

  1. (a) high performance turbine engined aeroplanes;
  2. (b) ex-military aircraft types currently in production;
  3. (c) ex-military aircraft types for which continued airworthiness support is still available from the manufacturer;
  4. (d) ex-military aircraft destined for commercial use;

Information Note:

In any of the cases referred to at items (b), (c) and (d) above, the imported aircraft will require a type certificate activity in accordance with the procedures set out in Chapter 511 of this manual. Subpart 511 of the CARs is still at the draft stage. As an interim measure, pending the promulgation of Subpart 511, Chapter 511 of the Airworthiness Manual in effect up to the promulgation of the CARs continues to apply.

  1. (e) ex-military aircraft for which the type was previously issued with a type certificate;
  2. (f) any ex-military aircraft previously declared unacceptable for civil operation, for whatever reasons, by the military and/or civil aviation authorities of the country of origin.

4. Acceptance Criteria

Aircraft considered eligible for issue of a flight authority will still be required to meet the criteria set out in this chapter and developed in line with CAR 507.

5. Commitments

Information Note:

Before making any firm commitments for the importation of ex-military aircraft from any foreign country, interested parties are urged to contact the Transport Canada Airworthiness office located in their region for guidance as to whether the aircraft is eligible for, and can meet the requirements of a flight authority.

Airworthiness Evaluation Process for Ex-military Aircraft

""

(6) Steps in the Evaluation Process

This explains, in detail, the individual steps to be taken in evaluating ex-military aircraft for flight authority.

Step Explanation

  1. 1. Has the aircraft type been issued a type certificate by Transport Canada or the civil aviation authority of the original country of manufacture?
  2. 2. Is the type certificate in the normal or restricted category?
  3. 3. Is the aircraft in question to be used for private (non-commercial) recreational flying only?
  4. 4. For an aircraft being imported, a validation of the type certificate by Transport Canada will be required.
  5. 5. Upon successful completion of the validation process a Canadian type certificate will be issued.
  6. 6. An aircraft can be approved for a Special C of A - Restricted provided it meets all the requirements applicable to it under the CAR, and a complete history of the aircraft is available. An aircraft can be imported under CAR 509, provided a complete history of the aircraft is available.
  7. 7. Same as Step 4.
  8. 8. Same as Step 5.
  9. 9. Aircraft will be issued a certificate of airworthiness. An aircraft can be imported under the provisions of CAR 507.
  10. 10. Is the aircraft of a type that was manufactured to civil airworthiness standards?
  11. 11. Through the familiarisation or validation process, the aircraft type is determined to meet the standards applicable to normal or transport category aircraft.
  12. 12. A Canadian type certificate will be issued in accordance with the procedures developed under CAR 511.
  13. 13. Same as Step 3.
  14. 14. If the aircraft is to be used commercially, a Canadian type certificate in the restricted category will be issued. The aircraft is then eligible for a Special Certificate of Airworthiness - Restricted.
  15. 15. Where the aircraft is to be used for private (non-commercial) recreational flying only, it will be eligible for a Special Certificate of Airworthiness - Limited, provided it is shown through inspection that it is in compliance with its original type design and that a complete history of the aircraft is available.
