Set out below is a recently-issued Circular from Transport Canada on the use of Protective Clothing for Crew Members

Please find attached Advisory Circular AC 700-058 - ISSUE 01 - CREW MEMBER UNIFORM MATERIALS AND PROTECTIVE CLOTHING, effective April 1, 2021.

The purpose of this Advisory Circular (AC) is to inform air operators of the potential hazards for crew members when crew member uniforms do not provide adequate protection while fighting a fire or during an evacuation of the aircraft. It is recommended that this AC be taken into consideration when air operators update, modify, or replace existing crew member uniforms. 

Stay informed by subscribing to the Transport Canada Civil Aviation e-Bulletin and be notified by e-mail when an AC has been newly published. You can also subscribe to receive other TC publications such as newsletters and important safety information.
