Advisory Circulars

Please note: All documents issued after 01 Feb 2007 are available on the Online Reference Centre.

Commercial and Business Aviation Advisory Circulars (CBAACs) are intended to provide information and guidance regarding operational matters. A CBAAC may describe an acceptable, but not the only, means of demonstrating compliance with existing regulations. CBAACs in and of themselves do not change, create any additional, authorize changes in, or permit deviations from regulatory requirements.

The following CBAACs are in effect and are available as separate entities. All other CBAACs (previously Air Carrier Advisory Circulars) have either been cancelled, revised or included in the Canadian Aviation Regulations (CARs) or other aviation publications.

CBAACs are now available in Microsoft Word Document format. This version allows viewing of the original CBAAC format including revision marks. CBAACs published before 2004 are not available through this version at this time. Visit the Microsoft Office download center to acquire a free download of Word 97/2000 (Word 2000) (Windows 95/98/NT).
