REPORTING OF POSSIBLE AVIATION VIOLATIONS

Occurrences and alleged violations of the regulations are investigated to ascertain whether a violation has occurred.  ONLY TRANSPORT CANADA HAS THE AUTHORITY TO IMPOSE PENALTIES FOR AVIATION VIOLATIONS.

LOW FLYING AIRCRAFT - Canadian Aviation Regulations (CARs) 602.14-602.16, prescribes 1,000 feet as the minimum altitude that an aircraft may over-fly a built up area (500 feet for water), unless the aircraft is conducting a take-off, approach or landing (other exemptions may apply).

To report possible violations, you may also contact Civil Aviation Communications Centre (CACC) at:

1-800-305-2059 or services@tc.gc.ca

When contacting CACC, ensure that you have as much information available as possible.  This would include the date and time of the incident, what was happening, the tail number, color of the plane, type and size of plane (bi-plane, fixed wing, helicopter, etc.).
