Who We Are
RAA Canada is the only aviation organization that works with Transport Canada exclusively on non certified category aircraft, and provides representation to you in Ottawa and in your own province. Our representatives attend Ottawa meetings to ensure that regulations remain favourable to our chosen means of aviating. We interface between the pilot/builder and Transport Canada, MD-RA Inspection Services, Enforcement, and other government bodies. We are all volunteers and we are the only organization working on your behalf to ensure the freedom to build and fly non certified aircraft in Canada. Regulations change slowly and anyone may read them online, but the interpretations can change significantly with far-reaching effects. RAA National members are kept apprised in a timely manner in our Recreational Flyer magazine, on our www.raa.ca website, in our email forums, and by personal phone call or email.
RAA Canada has chapters across Canada and at no charge provides insurance coverage of $5 million for all RAA events across the country.
