Online Survey: Please take a moment to complete the following short survey in order to share your thoughts on Feedback.

Feedback is a safety awareness communication for the aviation community. Subscribe to receive quarterly updates through e-news.

The Diamond DA62 is a twin engine 7-place aircraft for which Diamond Canada has recently acquired all rights to (along with the DA40) from Diamond Austria. Production of the DA40 (4 seat single) and DA62 (5/7 seat twin) is expected to transition from Austria to Canada by end of 2017.

Heads up

Welcome to Transport Canada Continuing Airworthiness’ new Feedback website. If you’ve been a regular reader of Feedback, you know that the magazine has been published online in PDF format for years. However, the time has come to update and modernize our publication in order to make it more accessible and responsive to the needs of the aviation industry. This latest update changes Feedbackfrom a quarterly PDF magazine into a more dynamic information website.

You will still find all the standard features of Feedback magazine including; articles on airworthiness issues as well as the latest Service Difficulty and Suspected Unapproved Parts notifications. This transformation allows us to publish safety information more frequently, make it more readily available on mobile devices and provides an improved archive and search functionality so that you can find safety data that is relevant to you.

Safety communication has been a cornerstone of Continuing Airworthiness’ mandate since its inception and is something that hasn’t been affected by this change. Transport Canada has always relied on both the professional and recreational members of the aviation community to submit airworthiness issues through the Service Difficulty Reporting (SDR) system. This communication forms a critical part of our aviation safety program and given the growth of the aviation industry, both in Canada and abroad, it has never been more important. We would like to encourage you to continue to submit service difficulties through the Web Service Difficulty Reporting System (WSDRS) as accurately and as timely as possible. Each one of your submissions is reviewed and they do make a difference.

We hope you find the changes to Feedback useful. We value your feedback so please take a moment to respond to the survey on this page and let us know what you think.

Suspected Unapproved Parts (SUP)

In Canada, SUPs are reported in accordance with section 571.13 of the standard of the Canadian Aviation Regulation (CAR).

When you suspect an unapproved part, the SUP report can be submitted on the SDR form or through the Web Service Difficulty Reporting System.

FAA Unapproved Parts Notifications (UPN)

Unapproved Parts Notifications are published by: FAA, AIR-140, P.O. Box 26460, Oklahoma City, OK 73125.

FAA Special Airworthiness Information Bulletins (SAIB)

A Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) SAIB is an information tool that alerts, educates, and makes recommendations to the general aviation community. It is non-regulatory information and guidance that does not meet the criteria for an Airworthiness Directive (AD).

EASA Safety Information Bulletin (SIB)

European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) SIB is an information tool that alerts, educates, and makes recommendations to the general aviation community. It is non-regulatory information and guidance that does not meet the criteria for an Airworthiness Directive (AD).

Transport Canada (TC) endeavours to send copies of new Airworthiness Directives (ADs), which are applicable in Canada to the registered owners of the affected products. Equipment/appliance ADs are often only distributed to our regional offices because the owners of aircraft affected by this type of AD are not generally known.

Aircraft Maintenance Engineers (AMEs) and operators of the affected products are encouraged to obtain further information or a copy of the ADs from their regional TC office, their local Transport Canada Centre (TCC), their Principal Maintenance Inspector (PMI), or from the Civil Aviation AD website

Service Difficulty Reports (SDR)

Service Difficulty Reports are submitted by Aircraft Maintenance Engineers (AMEs), owners, operators and other sources to report problems, defects or occurrences that affect aircraft airworthiness in Canada.
