Regulations Amending the Canadian Aviation Regulations - Flight Crew Member Hours of Work and Rest Periods

On July 1st the Government of Canada published their latest proposal for new Flight Crew Fatigue regulations in Canada Gazette Part 1 for comment. Some changes that ATAC had been seeking during our prolonged advocacy have been incorporated in this latest proposal however overall ATAC is not pleased with this latest proposal. Many of the specific new requirements penalize our industry that already has one of the best safety records in the world. The Government’s ”one size fits all” approach isn’t justifiable nor practical! ATAC will continue to work closely with our members, and our other industry colleagues, over the 90 day comment period to ensure the Government understands our concerns and hopefully listens to us prior to proceeding to Canada Gazette Part 2 in 2018.

Please refer to the following link for copies of the gazette proposed regulations and associated documents:
