The ASL is moving to the Web!

Starting with Issue 1/2012, Transport Canada's Aviation Safety Letter (ASL) will officially become an online publication only. The decision to end the printing and distribution of paper copies of the ASL was not taken lightly, and was made in order to reduce our environmental footprint and to better manage public funds.

The good news is that this transition offers new possibilities for our publication, such as unrestricted use of colours, length of magazine, interactivity, and exploring the use of social media. Safety awareness activities need to adapt to current industry trends to become as effective as possible. This shift moves us in the right direction and highlights Transport Canada's continual progression and growth in its safety awareness strategy.
