The Canadian Forces Flight Safety Manuals
Canadian Forces Flight Safety manuals are issued by the Chief of the Air Force Staff on the authority of the Chief of the Defence Staff.
Airworthiness Investigation Manual
The Airworthiness Investigation Manual (AIM) is produced under the authority of the Airworthiness Investigative Authority (AIA) IAW DAOD 2015-1 (Department of National Defence and the Canadian Forces (DND/CF) Airworthiness Program). The AIA conducts independent investigation of all matters concerning military aviation safety, which is a MND obligation outlined in the Aeronautics Act. The AIM delineates AIA policies, procedures and instructions for Airworthiness Investigations and details how the AIA interacts within DND/CF and with persons, agencies, companies or authorities outside of DND/CF. Consequently the AIM applies to all Flight Safety (FS) Investigation activities carried out by the DND/CF. As a policy document the AIM has a higher place in the governance hierarchy than other FS manuals. The effective date for the AIM is 15 Feb 10 and the compliance date is 16 Apr 10.
