Chapter 5. Airworthiness Control Procedures
5.12 DND Modification Approvals
ACPL 31 has been prepared for Aircraft Certification personnel, including delegates, looking for information on TCCAs position regarding the approval of modifications intended for installation on military aircraft operated by the Department of National Defence (DND).
Canadian Aviation Regulations (CARs), more specifically CAR 102.01(a), which came into effect in 1996, stipulates in part that Canadian regulations "do not apply to military aircraft of Her Majesty in right of Canada where operated under the authority of the Minister of National Defence." Given the restrictions imposed by CAR 102.01(a), the prevailing resource constraints, and TCCAs inability to monitor the continuing airworthiness for non-civil registered aircraft, TCCA will no longer support applications for the approval of modifications exclusively intended for DND-operated aircraft.
