A-GA-135-003/AG-001 Airworthiness Investigation Manual

The Airworthiness Investigation Manual (AIM) delineates Airworthiness Investigative Authority (AIA) policies, procedures and instructions for Airworthiness Investigations and details how the AIA interacts within the Department of National Defence and the Canadian Forces (DND/CF) and with persons, agencies, companies or authorities outside of DND/CF. Consequently the AIM applies to all Flight Safety Investigation activities carried out by the DND/CF.
