Commentary and SATOPS Task Force Recommendations

The recommendations are preceded by a commentary reflecting issues that were identified by industry or Transport Canada. As stated in the Executive Summary, "SR" indicates a SATOPS Recommendation and "IA" indicates a corresponding Industry Action. The "IAs" represent a challenge to industry in partnership with Transport Canada to act on the recommendations and become proactive in their approach to safety. The purpose of the SATOPS project was to identify the Air Taxi industry's attitude toward operating practices and propose ways to reduce the number of accidents. Transport Canada should also take this opportunity to review its own policies and procedures.

Note:  These recommendations are based on user perceptions gathered throughout the consultative process. An in-depth analysis will be required during the implementation phase of this project.
