CAR 421.05(2)(c) states that the Minister may approve recurrent training programs in order to comply with the requirements of 401.05(2)(a). In accordance G.A. Policy Letter 98-07, approvals of recurrent training programs in accordance with CAR 421.05(2)(c) have been processed by the Recreational Aviation and Special Flight Operations division in headquarters. In processing such requests, the Recreational Aviation and Special Flight Operations division have coordinated with regional staff and with other divisions for input, where required, to ensure the adequacy and appropriateness of the proposed program.
Since this has proven to be an effective means of ensuring a consistent national approval process, application has been made to amend the Ministerial Delegation of Authority Schedule C-2 - Chief, Recreational Aviation and Special Flight Operations, accordingly. Once Schedule C-2 has been amended, Policy Letter 98-07 will be cancelled.
Regional offices receiving requests for approval of recurrent training programs should obtain details of the proposed program and forward the information to Recreational Aviation and Special Flight Operations in headquarters.
