New CAR/ACF Address
Posted by David Buhler on February 02, 2017

Hi Rocketeers

Just a reminder as we start looking to membership renewals, sending in those worn and wrinkly RI forms and the like. All the documents on CAR web have been updated with a new address so if you are using an old form or one prior to Feb 2017 it will go to Art and then must be sent my way. So, CAR/ACF address is now:

71 Bermuda Close NW
Calgary, AB T3K1G4

New Fax is 403-730-1971

Email me at:

The Secretary Treasurer position officially transitions on Feb 28th, there will be overlap before and after as a multitude of things also must be redirected my way. I want to thank Yves Dufour for helping get the French side of the house updated.

Some of you may remember the old days, well 10-15 years ago anyhow, I took on the moniker of “database slave”, it was and actually still is, except now there is this thing about looking after the financial side of the house too. So, I should look at a new name for the position, suggestions?

RSO Training Program and Revised HP Exam
Posted by Greg Dietlein on November 28, 2016

It is with great excitement that I am able to announce that Transport Canada has approved both the new RSO training program and a revised high power exam.

The RSO Training document brings RSO training into full alignment with federal requirements. It outlines training and recording of training as well as the final approval process. The process has taken many years to complete. Work by past presidents, executives, CRSOs, RSOs and BODs have played a real and important part towards the successful completion of this very important work.

The HP exam has updated as well as addresses concerns expressed by members over the years. It requires an updated study guide and conversion to a bilingual document. This is well in hand by the translation committee and will be made available very shortly.

Thank you to all those who made this work with special thanks to:

Pierre Laurendeau, past president and past CRSO
Angelo Castellano, past president

Their work on these documents proved to be decisively critical.

Again, thanks to the many, many people who helped and contributed.

Greg Dietlein
President, CAR/ACF

C’est avec le plus grand des plaisirs que je vous annonce que Transport Canada a approuvé le nouveau programme de formation RSO et la version révisée de l’examen Haute puissance.

Le nouveau document permet au programme de formation RSO de répondre aux exigences du gouvernement fédéral. On y décrit les étapes de formation, la consignation des activités réalisées ainsi que le processus d’approbation finale. L’élaboration de ce programme a pris de nombreuses années. Le travail des anciens présidents, des administrateurs, des CRSO, des RSO et des BOD a permis de mener à bien cet important projet.

L’examen Haute Puissance a été mis à jour pour répondre aux inquiétudes exprimées par les membres au cours des années. Conséquemment le guide de formation doit être révisé et se présentera sous forme d’un document bilingue. Le comité de traduction a entrepris le travail et les documents seront disponibles prochainement.

Merci à toutes les personnes qui ont collaboré à la réalisation de ces révisions avec des mentions spéciales à :

M. Pierre Laurendeau, ancien président du CAR/ACF et ancien président du comité RSO
M. Angelo Castellano, ancien président du CAR/ACF.

Leur contribution à la réalisation de ces documents a été des plus significatives.

Encore une fois merci aux nombreuses personnes qui se sont impliqué.

Greg Dietlein
Président, CAR/ACF
