Canadian aviation regulators are reviewing an assessment by the nation’s helicopter industry on how the industry might take on more management of the aviation regulation system. Transport Canada in 2003 shifted some management of standardization, certification and oversight of business aviation to the Canadian Business Aviation Assn. as part of a broader effort to boost the efficiency of Canadian government operations. It subsequently asked the Helicopter Assn. of Canada to consider similar changes in the management of helicopter air operator certificates. The association judged such a move mutually beneficial and has proposed fleshing out a detailed agreement between it and Transport Canada to move forward, assuming its members and the government concur. The association largely represents commercial helicopter operators in Canada.  For related news
