1.     PURPOSE

       1.1 The purpose of this letter is to advise personnel of a change to the policy and procedures regarding
           validations. The issuance of the attached standardised validation is applicable only to a Special
           Airworthiness Certificate - Experimental, for the purpose of operating a United States (US) - registered
           amateur-built aircraft in Canada.

2.     BACKGROUND

       2.1 Transport Canada, Aircraft Maintenance and Manufacturing Branch has determined that a simplified
           method of issuing validations in respect of a Special Airworthiness Certificate - Experimental, for the
           purpose of operating a US-registered amateur-built aircraft in Canada would be in the best interest of both
           Transport Canada and the owners and operators of US-registered amateur-built aircraft. The manpower
           and budgetary resources required for the process of completing the appropriate forms, issuing validations
           and keeping and maintaining records far exceed the safety benefits, if any, realized through such an
           administrative process.

3.     POLICY

       3.1 The attached document constitutes a standardised validation of the Special Airworthiness Certificate -
           Experimental, for the purpose of operating a US-registered amateur-built aircraft, in Canada. Its
           continuing validity is subject to compliance with the Canadian Aviation Regulations and the operating
           conditions which form part of the validation.

       3.2 The standardised validation shall be carried on board the aircraft when operating in Canadian airspace; a
           copy of this Maintenance Policy letter is not required to be carried onboard the aircraft.

       3.3 Copies of the standardised validation may be obtained free of charge from Transport Canada Centres or
           directly from the Transport Canada Civil Aviation Internet (electronic) Web Site at:

             Internet: http://www.tc.gc.ca/aviation/mainten/regs&docs/download.htm

             or on the Transport Canada internal Web Site at:

             Intranet http://info.tc.gc.ca /aviation/mainten/regs&docs/download.htm

4.     EFFECTIVE DATE

       4.1 This policy comes into effect on July 31, 1999.

5.     EXPIRY

       5.1 This letter expires upon incorporation of the policy into Standard 507 - Flight Authority.
