CBAA/NBAA Cross-Border Issues Conference

Bookmark and Share

Although the United States and Canada have a close geographic and economic relationship, there are still unique operational and regulatory issues in each country that operators must be aware of when planning cross-border flights. CBAA and NBAA have jointly developed this conference to provide the information business aircraft operators need to safely and efficiently transport passengers in both countries.

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Understand the operational and regulatory issues that pertain to cross-border flights;
  • Utilize trusted traveler programs in Canada, such as CANPASS, and comply with U.S. Advance Passenger Information System requirements;
  • Comply with the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme monitoring, reporting and verification requirements;
  • Effectively use iPads and other tablet devices to streamline flight operations while complying with applicable regulations;
  • Understand cabotage restrictions and their impact on flights within the U.S. and Canada.
