National Aircraft Certification establishes and regulates standards for aeronautical products designed and operated in Canada, and guides the aerospace industry with respect to certification in highly technical fields such as:
- aircraft design, structures, avionics;
- electrical and mechanical systems;
- power plants;
- and engineering flight tests.
Each year, more than 1,500 new and modified aeronautical products built or operated in Canada are approved
- reviewing and verifying design and performance data;
- supervising and performing ground and flight tests;
- and awarding Transport Canada Type Certificates.
Along with the Maintenance and Manufacturing Branch, National Aircraft Certification is also responsible for the continuing airworthiness of aeronautical products.
