Aeronautical Product Development Technologies program

To create a successful product, companies must advance emerging and maturing technologies in prototypes to a level where the risk is acceptable from both a business and a regulatory standpoint. The Aeronautical Product Development Technologies (APDT) program helps the Canadian aerospace industry by reducing the cost of the rigorous developmental testing and evaluation required to advance the technological readiness of aeronautical products from initial prototype to certified product.

By providing priority access to national facilities and technologies, the APDT program helps to reduce the time, costs and risks associated with development, testing and certification, thereby enhancing the success of Canada's aerospace sector. The program also works with Transport Canada to seek new and innovative ways to ensure that aeronautical products attain the same target level of safety while streamlining the associated regulatory efforts.
