109 - titled - Aircraft Under an Agreement for Transfer of Functions and Duties in Accordance with Article 83 bis of the Convention. These new requirements apply to foreign-registered aircraft operated by a Canadian operator and to persons performing any functions or duties in respect of the aircraft if the requirements set out in these Regulations are specifically included under the terms of an agreement in force between Canada and another contracting State in accordance with Article 83 bis of the Convention.

CAR 203

203.03 (1) (c) – Leasing Operations General, this paragraph has been amended to remove the reference to CAR 604.48, which was removed from subpart 604, which applies only to Private Operator Passenger Transportation, which has also been completely rewritten as part of this December amendment of the CARs.

STD 223

223.03 - Operation of a Leased Aircraft by a Non-registered Owner was also amended to reflect changes to subpart 604. The reference removed form subpart 604 was 604.48, which no longer exists in the CAR. The link to 604.48 provided in STD 223.03 (1) (c) takes you to the beginning of subpart 604. This error has been identified and will be corrected at the next revision to the standard.
