|New Aviation Document Booklet|
It's here! That simple paper pilot license you've carried around for years is being replaced. Transport Canada has made significant changes to the document, adding more details, including pilot photograph, ratings, machine-readable bar codes and a number of security features.
Most classes of current Canadian commercial and private aeroplane and helicopter pilots and ATP holders should have applied for the new document by now. The deadline for applications was June 30, 2010. If you haven't obtained your new pilot document yet, you can't fly until you get it. Transport Canada says applications are taking 4 to 6 weeks to process.
Glider Pilot, Balloon Pilot, Gyroplane pilot permit, recreational and ultra-light licence holders can also apply now for the new document. Those categories of existing licences will expire on December 31, 2010.
The application form is available on-line for the new Canadian Aviation Document Booklet. Want to know more? Check this . More information about the new license document is also here on the Transport Canada website.
