The government published in the Canada Gazette, Part I proposed new regulations that would require private and commercial airplanes with six or more passenger seats to be equipped with the “terrain awareness and warning system” (TAWS), which provides acoustic and visual alerts to flight crews when their aircraft’s path is predicted to collide with terrain, water or obstacles. The proposed regulations comply with the International Civil Aviation Organization’s standards and help harmonize Canadian regulations more closely with those of other aviation authorities.
