News & Regulatory Updates
Transport Canada Issues Regulations for Equipage of Aircraft with Terrain Awareness Warning Systems
On July 4, 2012, Transport Canada Civil Aviation issued amendments to the Canadian Aviation Regulations for equipage of aircraft with a terrain awareness warning system. The TAWS regulations will apply to commercial air taxi, commuter and airline operations (Subparts 703, 704 and 705 of the CARs) and certain private operators (Subpart 604 of the CARs). They are effective immediately for airplanes manufactured on or after July 4, 2012. This also applies to newly manufactured aircraft that enter Canada on a lease-back arrangement. Affected airplanes manufactured before this date will be required to be in compliance within two years or by July 4, 2014. Additionally, those airplanes required to have TAWS must be in compliance with the TAWS enhanced altitude accuracy requirements within five years or by July 4, 2017. TAWS is required for airplanes conducting the following types of operations: • CAR 604 – Private turbine-powered airplanes configured with six or more seats, excluding pilot seats.

QUESTION: Will the FAA allow portable/handheld units, or will they have to be panel mounts only? ANSWER: Installed transponders and GPS units must meet certification standards. Handheld devices and displays that serve only for situational awareness have more flexibility and are not certified installations. In order to comply with 14 CFR §§ 91.225 and 91.227, aircraft intended to fly in ADS-B airspace must have installed and certified equipment. Portable installations are not compliant to the rule and would only be usable for receiving FIS-B services for situational awareness. The FAA is in the early stages of investigating a portable device for glider aircraft.
