The following Commercial and Business Aviation Policy Letters (CBAPL) are in effect and are available as separate entities.

These Policy Letters have been prepared as staff instructions for Transport Canada Inspectors. The issues dealt with in these Policy Letters are not meant to be regulatory in nature although they may deal with regulatory matters. Although they do not directly affect Industry, they are posted on the Web and available to the public for information purposes. Where the information affects Industry, an accompanying Commercial & Business Aviation Advisory Circular is also issued.
