Transport Canada increased the minimum visibility required before beginning an approach from the previous 1,200 feet to 1,600 feet, effective December 1. Transport Canada also amended the regulations to prohibit commercial operators, including air taxis, from beginning an approach under conditions in which a successful landing is unlikely. However, the rule will not apply to operators and crews already approved to lower visibility limits at specified runways. Transport Canada said that the new rules will help harmonize Canadian regulations with international standards, including those in the U.S.
