The Special Certificate of Airworthiness Owner-Maintenance

During 1998 and 1999, the Owner-Maintenance Aircraft Category had passed through the CARAC Part V Technical Committee but stalled in the Department of Justice during the rule-making process.

Feedback from more than 400 COPA members identified the importance of the new category. In February 2000, Transport Canada issued ministerial exemptions to provide for the issue of a Flight Permit Specific Purpose Owner-Maintenance.

In March 2002 the new rules were enacted, entered the CARs and the exemption phase ended. Aircraft in this category now may qualify for a Special Certificate of Airworthiness Owner-Maintenance.
