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.

CRM Training Requirements Continue to Frustrate and Confuse Operator-Members
December 13, 2018 - In May of last year, the Transportation Safety Board released an occurrence report that Recommended that:
The Department of Transport require commercial air operators to provide contemporary crew resource management (CRM) training for Canadian Aviation Regulations (CARs) subpart 703 air taxi and CARs subpart 704 commuter pilots.
The recommendation was originally based on a 2007 accident that occurred to Trans West Air – but has since been re-assessed by the TSB on a number of occasions.
You will recall that HAC requested a six month extension to the January 31 2019 deadline, to give operators some time to comply, and to clarify the requirements of the AC. The request was denied.
December 13, 2018 - For the last year or so, HAC’s e-Newsletter has been prepared by NAYLOR. As-of January 2019, HAC will be moving to MEDIA EDGE Communications as its e-Newsletter provider.
