Part 1: The information is intended to provide a general overview of the importation process to a prospective applicant. Part 1 is composed of two pages.

Part 2: Is to be completed by the applicant and submitted to Transport Canada. This should be done prior to purchasing the aircraft to ensure it is eligible for importation. An application for Provisional Certificate of Registration (form 26-0025) may be made when Part 2 is completed and verified eligible for importation by Transport Canada or a Minister's Delegate. Please refer to Standard 507 Appendix E - Additional Guidelines respecting the application for a flight authority. Part 2 is composed of 7 pages.

Part 3: Consists of three checklists that are to be completed by the applicant. The checklists are broken into two distinct methods of verification of conformity to an approved type design. Complete only the checklist that is applicable to the method of importation. Please ensure all segments of the checklist utilized are completed. Part 3 is composed of 3 checklists that cover a total of 9 pages .

Checklist 1: This checklist will be used when:

  1. conformity to an approved type design is shown by means of an Export Airworthiness Certificate issued by the civil aviation authority of a country with which Canada has entered into a bilateral airworthiness agreement or a similar arrangement, which provides for the acceptance of such certificates; or
  2. conformity to an approved type design is shown by means of an Export Airworthiness Certificate issued by the civil aviation authority of a country with which Canada does not have an agreement, where a Canadian Type Certificate has been issued and the product is being exported from the country of manufacture. Checklist 1 is composed of 3 pages.

Checklist 2: This checklist will be used when conformity to an approved type design is shown by means of an airworthiness inspection to procedures detailed in the Canadian Aviation Regulations for an aircraft, which will be imported without an Export Airworthiness Certificate. Checklist 2 is composed of 4 pages.

Checklist 3: The following checklist will be used to ensure essential operating requirements are met. This checklist is applicable to aircraft imported with or without an Export Airworthiness Certificate.

Part 4: Identifies additional airworthiness inspection requirements for aeroplanes, helicopters and balloons that must be complied with prior to the aircraft being operated under the authority of an Air Operator Certificate (AOC), Private Operator Certificate (POC), Flight Training Unit Certificate (FTUOC) or Privately Operated. It is important to note that not all sections are applicable therefore it is imperative the applicant review each area of inspection for applicability against the referenced regulation and standard. This checklist will be submitted to your Principal Maintenance Inspector as part of the process to add the aircraft to the AOC or POC. Part 4 is composed of 6 pages and is optional at time of import.

Part 5: Consists of 6 checklists. Each checklist identifies specific airworthiness / operational requirements for aircraft operated under CAR Part IV Subpart 6 - Flight Training Units, Part VI Subpart 4 - Private Operator Passenger Transportation, Part VII Subpart 2 - Aerial Work, Part VII Subpart 3 - Air Taxi Operations, Part VII Subpart 4 - Commuter Operations and Part VII Subpart 5 - Airline Operations. The applicant should review and complete the applicable checklist in conjunction with applicable portions of Part 4 of this document. This checklist will be submitted to your Principal Maintenance Inspector as part of the process to add the aircraft to the AOC. Part 5 is composed of 8 pages and is optional at time of import.

Part 1: General Overview

Airworthiness Requirements:

An aircraft may be issued a Canadian C of A whether or not it is imported with an Export Airworthiness Certificate, provided it can be shown and the Minister is satisfied that the aircraft conforms to an approved type design and is in a condition for safe operation.

Note: The term "in a condition for safe operation" is intended to cover general aircraft condition and whether or not the aircraft is configured for the type of operation it will be used for.

Aircraft may conform with the basic requirements of the Type Certificate Data Sheet (TCDS) but be in poor overall condition. Maintenance may be needed to restore the aircraft and it's systems to ensure proper operation. The aircraft may also be intended for operation in a role that requires the installation of additional equipment such as medivac or fire supression or where specific operational rules require the installation of certain items of equipment such as Flight Data Recorders, survival equipment, Ground Proximity Warning Systems and so on. The combination of proper maintenance and aircraft configuration meet the intent of "in a condition for safe operation".

It is not intended that a Transport Canada Civil Aviation Safety Inspector or Minister's Delegate assume any responsibility for the condition or safe operation of any aircraft. This is the responsibility of an appropriately qualified person per CAR 571.11 and/or the operator of the aircraft.

1.1 The following requirements must be met for the aircraft to be eligible for importation:

  1. The aircraft owner must be qualified to be a registered owner of a Canadian Aircraft pursuant to Canadian Aviation Regulations (CAR) Part II, Subpart 2 - Aircraft Marking and Registration, CAR 202.15; and
  2. The aircraft must conform to an approved type design. This may be demonstrated by compliance with CAR Part V, Subpart 7 - Flight Authority, CAR 507.07 and STD 507.07 - Applications made in respect of Imported Aircraft.

Information Notes: There is a distinct difference between eligibility for import and eligibility for the issuance of a Certificate of Airworthiness.

  1. For the aircraft type to be eligible for import, there must be a Canadian TCDS (reference CAR 507.07(6)(a)) for the aircraft type. Airworthiness Notice B038 contains additional information on aircraft that have not been issued a Canadian TCDS but are otherwise eligible for import.
  2. To be eligible for the issuance of a Certificate of Airworthiness, the applicant must demonstrate that the aircraft conforms to all the requirements of the TCDS. This will include correct aircraft model and serial number, correct engine, propeller and appliance models plus any additional requirements such as Canadian configuration modifications, flight manual status, life limitations, maintenance requirements and so on. The checklists contained in this document are designed for this purpose. Importers are cautioned to ensure that the aircraft they wish to import is specifically listed in the TCDS by model and serial number. Contact Transport Canada Aircraft Certification if there is any discrepancy with the aircraft model or serial number and the TCDS.

1.2 For aircraft to be operated commercially & added onto an Air Operator Certificate:

For aircraft that will be imported and added to an Air Operator Certificate (either commercial or private), additional airworthiness and operational requirements must be met prior to operation of the aircraft. These requirements are contained in Part 4 and Part 5 of this aircraft importation checklist.

1.3 For all aircraft to be imported:

To expedite the importation process, applicants shall ensure that the aircraft conforms to all the applicable import requirements before the aircraft is subjected to a conformity inspection.

Information Notes:

  1. The applicant is responsible to ensure that all major repairs and major modifications carried out prior to importation, are in accordance with approved data. Refer to CAR 571.06 and Standard 571.06(1), (2), (3), (4), (5) and (6) for definitions of approved data and Standard 571 Appendix A for criteria used to classify modifications and repairs. Aircraft Certification Staff Instruction (ACSI) 23, Acceptance and Approval of Foreign Design Changes, should also be reviewed where the aircraft incorporates design changes approved by a foreign airworthiness authority.

The applicant must provide a complete list of modifications,Supplemental Instructions for Continued Airworthiness (ICA) and Supplemental Type Certificates as early as possible during the import process. The applicant may be required to supply substantiating documentation on any or all modifications, STCs as required by Transport Canada. The applicant must ensure he has access to all information required to support the above.

ii. Canadian and Foreign Supplemental Type Certificates (STC's) will be reviewed against configuration, differences in design requirements, AFM supplements, and maintenance manual supplements.

iii. Where differences are noted between the two certificates, inform regional certification personnel who will action in accordance with ACSI 22 and/or Aircraft Certification Policy Letter (ACPL) 6.

iv. Canadian STC's must take precedence for matters relating to Canadian certification.

v. When confirming that Transport Canada has validated a foreign change (STC or FAA 337), check the conditions of that validation to ensure that they have been complied with.

vi. All major repairs and major modifications must be reported to the Minister upon importation pursuant to CAR 571.12.

vii. The applicant must ensure that the aircraft complies with the Noise Emission Standards for the type. To determine if an aircraft does or does not need to meet noise emission standards, the following documents must be consulted; the TCDS; CAR 602; CAR 516 and STD 516 or ICAO Annex 16.

viii. If the aircraft is equipped with a Mode "S" transponder, the applicant must ensure that the transponder code has been disabled and a new code applied for at the time of registration.

ix. The applicant is required to provide Transport Canada with a documentation "report" (survey) delineating proposed maintenance activities required to bring the aircraft to a condition of conformity to the certified type design and for safe operation. See Part 3 and Standard 507.07(7).

x. If any doubt exists during any importation stage, please contact your local Transport Canada Center.

1.4 Additional import requirements may be detailed in the following publications:
