Service Difficulty Advisories and Alerts Are Being Consolidated Into Civil Aviation Safety Alerts (CASA)

Currently, Transport Canada distributes aviation safety information to stakeholders through the use of several types of documents, which include Service Difficulty Advisories and Service Difficulty Alerts.

As part of our continuous improvement process, Transport Canada identified a need to consolidate these documents into one single document, now entitled, Civil Aviation Safety Alerts (CASA).

As of the 1st of October, CASAs will replace Service Difficulty Advisories and Service Difficulty Alerts.

CASAs are non-mandatory notifications used to convey important safety information and recommended action items. The information contained in CASAs are critical and will be conveyed to the appropriate recipients in a timely manner. Recipients are then expected to take the recommendations of the CASAs into consideration during ongoing operations and maintenance.

Transport Canada’s public website now features a dedicated web page for CASAs:
