Freewheel Posted September 15, 2014 Report Share Posted September 15, 2014 Bulletin – September 15, 2014Transport Canada About to Release DRAFT F&DT RegulationsOn Monday September 15, we are led to believe that Transport Canada will be releasing the first draft of new Flight & Duty Time Regulations for the Commercial and Business Aviation Communities. It has been almost two years since the Flight & Duty Time Working Group Report was tabled in the CARAC process, over the objections of HAC and eight other allied regional and National Associations.With the exception of the National Airlines Council of Canada (NACC) all the national and regional associations in Canada representing the interests of Commercial and Business Aviation joined forces in opposition to the Recommendations contained in the Fatigue Risk Management Working Group Report [read the Working Group Report - http://www.h-a-c.ca/F&DT_WG_Final_Report.pdf.Nine Associations including the Air Transport Association of Canada (ATAC), Association québécoise du transport aérien (AQTA), Aviation Alberta (AA), British Columbia Aviation Council (BCAC), Canadian Business Aviation Association (CBAA), Manitoba Aviation Council (MAC), Northern Air Transport Association (NATA), and the Saskatchewan Aviation Council (SAC), and the Helicopter Association of Canada (HAC), joined forces to reject the Recommendations contained in the report. Read the Dissent – attached.The content of the draft Regulations has been a closely-held secret, but HAC and its allies will be reviewing the regulations this week, and planning our the next-steps in our advocacy efforts based on their content. Stay tuned for more.Fred L. Jones BA LLBPresident and CEOHelicopter Association of Canada“Bringing the Industry Together” 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
