Aviation Document ‘Blue’ Book Reissuing Delayed – Again

Transport Canada announced recently that holders of ‘Canadian Aviation Document Booklets’, referred to many as the aviation blue book, that were valid on April 1, 2023, and have expired or are due to expire soon, will remain valid until at least August 31, 2024.

The aviation regulator cites COVID-era supply chain issues as the cause for the delay in issuing replacements. This extension (NCR-023-2023) is itself an extension of an earlier exemption issued two years ago (NCR-059-2021).
