On Monday May 15 2017, our association joined with eight other associations from across the country to speak with one voice in an open letter to the Minister of Transport, Marc Garneau on the subject of Fatigue Management. The associations have objected to proposed new Regulations on Fatigue Management on the basis that they will not improve safety, and that they do no recognize the unique requirements of diverse sectors of the commercial aviation community in Canada.

HAC Producing "Helicopter Operations and Your Constitutional Rights – A primer for Helicopter Operators"
January 18, 2018 - Recently, HAC has been receiving a flurry of calls from operators who are running afoul of local and municipal law-makers, on a broad range of issues, including fuel storage; helipad establishment (both temporary and permanent), noise by-law complaints, the requirement for local and municipal licenses and permits; violation of Zoning by-laws, to name a few. With the assistance of outside counsel, HAC is preparing a primer on these issues, which can often be resolved early in the process by educating local and municipal governments on the limits of their authority over a Federally regulated area of Canadian law – namely, aviation. The paper will be available to HAC members, and will be informed by some specific examples, taken from my monthly list of calls from members…Names will be changed to protect the innocent. The paper should be available in the early February edition of the HAC Communique.
January 18, 2018 -

Also included in the conference will be a discussion of the US Commercial Aviation Safety Team (CAST) Program and TC's vision for Data-Driven decision-making. Stay tuned to the HAC Newsletter for an up-date on the content and outcome of the Conference.
