Transport Canada has also provided the following note and Advisory Circulars as guidance:
The Regulations Amending the Canadian Aviation Regulations (Parts I, VI and VII — Flight Crew Member Hours of Work and Rest Periods) were published in Part II of the Canada Gazette on December 12, 2018 [http://www.gazette.gc.ca/rp-pr/p2/2018/2018-12-12/html/sor-dors269-eng.html].
Associated standards to Subpart 702 - Aerial Work of the Canadian Aviation Regulations can be found at
The following three Advisory Circulars have been updated to reflect this amendment; draft Issue 2 of these ACs can be found at http://wwwapps.tc.gc.ca/Saf-Sec-Sur/2/npa-apm/actr.aspx?id=13&aType=1&lang=eng:
- AC 700-047: Flight Crew Fatigue Management – Prescriptive Limitations
- AC 700-046: Fatigue Risk Management System Requirements
- AC 700-045: Exemption and Safety Case Process for FRMS
After releasing Issue 2 of these three ACs, we will continue to work with stakeholders to improve future issues.
Furthermore, TC will continue to work with operators to develop and refine guidance material, and build common tools to support their operations. This will be led by TC’s Fatigue Risk Management System Special Advisor and in collaboration with industry through focus groups, workshops, and pilot projects. TC is also contracting out the development of small operator guidance materials and tools, to further support this group.
