NBAA, CBAA Hail Canadian Federal Court Decision

 - August 13, 2013, 3:20 PM

Both NBAA and the Canadian Business Aviation Association (CBAA) welcomed the Canadian Federal Court’s decision to overturn an appeal “that would have had adverse ramifications for companies using business aviation to conduct routine flights” between the U.S. and Canada. The Canadian Transportation Agency (CTA) had ruled that a U.S. company was providing transportation to the public, and would be required to provide the compliance and certifications of a scheduled airline. After several lengthy appeal rounds, the Canadian high court overturned the CTA’s position.
