Procedures for Aircraft Arriving from the U.S.

You might want to print out this page and use it as a checklist.

Documentation

      ID and Proof of Citizenship for each crew member or passenger
  This is very important; see below for details.
      If Experimental: Transport Canada "Standardised Validation" (see below)
      Pilot's License
      Aircraft Registration
      Airworthiness Certificate
      Proof of Insurance
      Radio Licenses
  Radio Station License (temporary copy good for 90 days; FCC Form 605)
  Radiotelephone Operator's License (temporary copy good for 90 days; FCC Form 753)

You must carry these documents on board the aircraft.

ID and Proof of Citizenship

Each crew member or passenger must carry identification and proof of citizenship. A passport is ideal. If you were born in the U.S. or Canada you can use a birth certificate and some photo ID, such as a driver's license. If you were born outside the U.S. or Canada, we strongly recommend that you bring your passport.

This is very important. The days of crossing the border with just a driver's license are probably gone for good.

Standardised Validation

Transport Canada (our equivalent of the FAA) requires U.S. aircraft registered under the Experimental category to carry a form that validates the Special Certificate of Airworthiness - Experimental. Just print one of the forms below (they are the same, just different file formats) and carry it on board the aircraft.
