Airworthiness Notice - B054, Edition 1 - 14 June 2000

Foreign Designed Engines Eligible for use on Foreign Designed Aircraft Registered in Canada


The purpose of this notice is to inform the aviation public of foreign designed and manufactured engine models that are eligible for use on foreign designed aircraft registered in Canada on the basis of their foreign engine type certificate, and for which no corresponding Canadian Engine Type Certificate was ever issued.


For the purpose of this notice, "eligible" engine for use on foreign designed aircraft registered in Canada, means an engine designed and manufactured in a foreign country, which, prior to the introduction of the requirements for the issuance of a Canadian Engine Type Approval/Certificate, had been:

  1. type certificated by the airworthiness authority holding design responsibility for the given engine model; and
  2. accepted by Transport Canada as part of a foreign designed aircraft.

The eligibility of foreign designed engines for which no Canadian Engine Type Certificate was issued is limited to:

  1. those piston engine models listed on Attachment I; and
  2. those turbine engine models listed on Attachment II.

Information pertaining to foreign designed piston and turbine engine models, intended for use on Canadian registered aircraft, and for which a Canadian Engine Type Certificate was issued, is available on the Transport Canada web site at


In the past, mainly prior to 1980, most engines designed in a foreign country were accepted by Transport Canada as part of the foreign designed aircraft model being imported in Canada.

In the early 1990s, foreign engines type certified under Subpart H of JAR 22, were being accepted as part of the very light aircraft model being imported in Canada without the issuance of a Canadian Engine Type Certificate.

Change in Engine Type Certification Policy

Effective 1 March 2000, Transport Canada will be issuing an Engine Type Certificate for all types of engines imported from any foreign country that are intended for use on Canadian registered aircraft, except for the engines listed on the eligibility lists.  Hence, a Canadian Engine Type Certificate will be required for all engines not on the eligibility lists.


For further information, or to report any error or omission in the two lists attached, please contact Transport Canada, Aircraft Certification Project Management, in Ottawa, telephone (613) 952-4341 or facsimile (613) 996-9178.
