Investigation of Military-Civilian Aircraft Accidents

Under Canada’s Aeronautics Act, the Minister of National Defence is required to designate a member of the Canadian Armed Forces or an employee of the Department of National Defence as the Airworthiness Investigative Authority (“AIA”).  The AIA is responsible for advancing aviation safety by investigating military occurrences and military-civilian occurrences (which are accidents or incidents involving a civilian aircraft and a military aircraft).  Canada’s Director of Flight Safety has been designated as the AIA.

As you may know, most states charge sales tax on the purchase of tangible property, including aircraft. In some cases, a buyer may be able to take advantage of an exemption such as a "fly-away exemption" to avoid having to pay sales tax to the state where the buyer takes delivery of the aircraft.
