No. 478.
CANADA/WEST INDIES TRADE.

The United Kingdom/West Indies
Working Party on Canada/West Indies
Trade held its final meeting on 13th
September in the Colonial Office.
The Working Party has provided an
invaluable opportunity for joint discus-
sion between representatives of the
West Indian Governments and of the
Departments in London on all aspects
of Trade between the West Indies and
Canada.
The Working Party re-affirmed the
importance of maintaining trade be-
tween Canada and the West Indies at
the highest possible level consistent
with the need to safeguard the present
difficult balance of payments position of
the sterling area. All aspects of the
Trade were examined by the Working
Party with a view to seeing whether it
was practicable, having regard to pre-
sent circumstances, to remove any ob-
stacles which might be impeding the
free flow of trade.
The Working Party noted with regret
the decision of the Canadian National
Steamships Company to withdraw the
"Lady" Boats, which have served the
many islands of the Eastern Caribbean
so well in the past. Further study is to
be made of inter-island shipping. It is
of considerable economic importance in
this area, particularly to the smaller is-
lands, that there should be adequate
services between the islands.
The West Indies look upon Canada,
as the traditional market for much of
its most important product, sugar, and
the Working Party expressed the hope
that the decision recorded in the Com-
monwealth Sugar Agreements, to return
the sale of West Iiidian and other Com-
mnonwealth snuar to Canada to private
hands from the beginning of 1953,
would help to ensure the maintenance
of the sales of West Indian sugar to
Canada at a high and stable level.
The Report of the Working Party is
now to be studied by Hier Majesty's
Government and the West Indian Gov-
ornments.

MQvement Signals.
44. Traffic may be controlled by day or by night by the use of radiotelephony
or radiotelegraphy between an aeroplane and the Control or by the use of the
following signals :-
(a) to authorise a movement on the manoeuvring area, other than taking
off, the Control shall direct at the aeroplane or vehicle an intermittent
green luminous beam;
(b) to authorise an aeroplane on the ground to take off, the Control shall
direct at the aeroplane a continuous green luminous !eam;
(c) subject to the proviso to paragraph (1) of Rule 41, to prohibit temporarily
landing, taking off or any movement on the manoeuvring area, i1j
Control shall direct at the aeroplane or vehicle a canunuous id
luminous beam;
(d) to instruct an aeroplane in the .air that, owing to the aerodrome being
unfit or for any other reason, a landing should u made elsewhere, or to
instruct an aeroplane or vehicle on the ground which has moved on to
the landing strip in use preparatory to departure or lor any other reason
to move clear of the landing strip immediately, the Control shall direct
at the aeroplane or vehicle an intermittent red luminous beam;
(e) to authorise an aeroplane to land, the Control shall direct at the
aeroplane a continuous green luminous beam;
(f) to instruct an aeroplane in flight that it should return to the aerodronme
and await the signal for permission to land, the Control shall direct at
the aeroplane an intermittent green luminous beam;
(g) to instruct an aeroplane or vehicle on the ground, which has moved on *
to the manoeuvring area, that it should return to the place from which
it started, the Control shall direct at the aeroplane an intermittent
white luminous beam and this signal shall, when necessary, Lk preceded
by a continuous red luminous beam.

SECTION VIII.
Rules for Ground Marks and Signals by Day at Aerodromes in the Colony.
45. The Rules in this Section and in Sections IX and X of thec2 Rules shall be
complied with at any licensed aerodrome and at any Government aerodrome
which has been notified as available for use by civil aircraft, except in so far as
exemption therefrom may be notified in respect of any such aerodrome. These
Rules should be read in conjunction with Rule 59.






Aerodrome Rules.
46. Whenever aircraft are making use or may be expected to make urs of a
land aerodrome in the Colony the following rsquircments shall be complied with
by day :--
(1) The direction of the surface wind shall be clearly indicated by a w'nl
sleeve. Any other method of wind indication may be used in addition.

(2) (a) The manoeuvring ar;,a shall be kept free from obstructions as far
as possible and any obstructions on the manoeuvring area shall be
indicated by clearly visible aerodrome markings.
(b) Any area set apart as a pa'riidng ar ea shall ie hl.iua:-d -o a: to
be clear of the landing strip in use and so as not to interfere with the
normal movements of aircraft manoeuvring on the ground.

(3) At an aerodrome where aircraft manoeuvres are not confined to
runways and taxiways the boundaries of the lancing area shall be
made clearly visible both to aircraft in the ar and to aircraft
manoeuvring on the manoeuvring area by means of markers as
illustrated by the type below, and, in case part of the manoeuvring area
should become unfit for use, such part shall be delimited by clearly
visible markings or flags, and shall in addition be indicated by one or
more clearly visible crosses.

(b) When aeroplanes are required to land on or take off from a runway and
the dumb-bell signal described in (a) of this paragraph is displayed, but when the
manoeuvring area, nevertheless, is not confined to runways and taxiways, two
black strips may be placed at right angles to the shaft of the said dumb-bell signal
one across each of the circular discs as illustrated below :-

(5) When any of the above conditions cannot be complied with the signal to
prohibit all landings referred to in (a) of paragraph (4) of Rule 47 shall be
displayed.
Rules relating to land aerodromes having an Aerodrome Control.
47. The Governor may establish an Aerodrome Control at any land aerodrome
where in his opinion this course is necessary in the interests of safety and may
apply to such aerodrome any or all of the following requirements as to signals by
day, which shall be complied with to such extent as they are so applied :-







(1) (a) A landing T as described in paragraph (1) of Rule 37 shall be
displayed in the signal area. When a runway is to be used for landing,
a second landing T shall be placed on and at the approach extremity of
the runway.
(b) Every landing T shall be placed so as to indicate the direction
in which aeroplanes must land, save in tLe exceptional circumstances
referred to in (d) of this paragraph, and normally the direction in
which aeroplanes must take off, save in the exceptional circumstances
referred to in (c) and (d) of this paragraph, and so as to afford the
most favourable conditions available at the time for these manoeuvres.
The shaft of the T shall be set parallel to the direction in which
aircraft are to land, and the end of the shaft at which the cross arm is
set shall indicate the direction in which such landing is to be made;
when a runway is to be used fir landings and take-offs the shaft of the
T shall be set parallel to the runway.
(c) Exceptionally, where the natural conditions do not permit
landings and departures to be made in the same direction, the landing
T shall indicate the direction for landing and, by day, a black ball, 2
feet in diameter on a mast shall be displayed so as to be clearly visible
to aircraft on the manoeuvring area to indicate that the directions of
landing and taking off may not coincide. A disc, 2 feet in diameter, of
the same colour as the T shall be displayed alongside the cross piece of
the T and in line with the shaft of the T to indicate to aircraft in the
air that the direction of the take-off and landing do not coincide.
(d) Exceptionally, in circumstances liable to be prolonged when a
single direction of landing and departure is not suitable for all types of
aircraft using the aerodrome, the signal described in (b) of paragraph
(4) of this Rule shall be displayed to indicate to aircraft in the air the
necessity for the observance of precautions in landing, the black ball
and disc signals referred to in (c) of this paragraph shall be displayed
and a landing or take-off in a direction other than that indicated by the
T shall be authorised by means of the signals prescribed in Section VII
of these Rules or by pre-arrangement with the Aerodrome Control.
(2) (a) To indicate to aircraft on the manoeuvring area prior to departure
the direction in which aircraft are to take oh one or more sets of two
figures, denoting the magnetic direction of tha take-off in units of ten
degrees to the nearest ten degrees, may be displayed vertically at or
near the position of the Aerodrome Control so as to be clearly visible to
such aircraft.
(b) To indicate to aircraft on the manoeuvring area that aerodrome
traffic is subject to control by means of the movement signals described
in Rule 44 a flag, or vertical ball, having 12 equal squares four arranged
horizontally and three arranged vertically coloured red 'and yellow
alternately, shall be displayed at or near the station of the Aerodrome
Control.
(3) (a) When in accordance with paragraph (4) of Rule 37 the Governor
temporarily suspends wholly or partially the application of the
Aedrome Flight Rules in Section VII of these Rules there shall, to
indicate such suspension, be placed horizontally in the signal arsa a
red square panel at least ten feet square.







(b) If during any such suspension as aforesaid it is also provided
that an aeroplane flying within the traffic zone is to keep the
manoeuvring area, on its right and that the circuit or partial circuit is
to be right-handed, the signal area shall along two of its sides be
bordered by a rectangular panel at least 3 feet wide, and at the
extremity of one of the rectangular panels there shall be placed an
equilateral triangle in such a manner as to indicate a right hand circuit.
The rectangular panels and the triangle aforesaid shall be coloured
with red and yellow bands.
If, however, without any such suspension, the Air Traffic Control
requires that the manoeuvring area shall tv, kept on the right and that
circuits or partial circuits shall be right-handed, the above signal shall
be displayed without the red square panel.
(4) (a) When special circumstances necessitate a prohibition to land
liable to be prolonged there shall be placed horizontally in the signal
area a red square panel at least 10 feet square, the diagonals of which
shall be marked by yellow strips at least 20 inches wide, arranged in the
form of an X.
(b) When owing to the bad state of the manoeuvring area or for
any other reason the observance of special precautions in approaching
to land and in landing is required, there shall be placed horizontally in
the signal area a red square panel at least 10 feet square, one of the
diagonals of which shall be marked with a yellow strip at least 20
inches wide.
(5) (a) When landings by means of a radio guide are taking place or are
about to take place the fact may be indicated by hoisting on a mast in
the signal area .a yellow triangular equilateral pyramid each side of
which measures at least 6 feet.
(b) Square yellow panels at least 10 feet square, or such other
signal as may be notified, may be placed horizontally at intervals along
the boundary of a control zone or traffic zone for the guidance of
aircraft which are operating under Visual Flight Rules. The display of
such a signal shall indicate to the pilot of an aircraft that Instrument
Flight Rules are in force within the control zone.
(c) At an aerodrome situated within a control zone, when conditions
of cloud or visibility are such that flights to and from such aerodrome
cannot be made under Visual Flight Rules, save with the consent of the
Air Traffic Control, a flashing amber light may be displayed at or near
the station of the Aerodrome Control.
(6) There shall be displayed vertically, so as to be clearly visible to aircraft
on the manoeuvring area which have landed or are about to depart, in
a position at or near the place at which the person in command of an
aircraft is required by Rule 38 to report to Aerodrome Control, the letter
C in black against a yellow background.

SECTION IX.
Rules for Night Lighting at Aerodromes in the Colony.
48. (1) Whenever aeroplanes are making use of or may be expected to mak2
use of any aerodrome referred to in Rule 45 by night the Rules in this Section shall
be complied with, except in so far as exemption therefrom may be notified in
respect of such aerodrome :







Provided that at a water aerodrome the Rules in this Section shall apply only
in so far as compliance therewith is practicable in the circumstances.
(2) In this Section the following expressions shall have the meanings hereby
respectively assigned to them, namely :-
(a) Angle of approach light" means a light at or near ground level at an
aerodrome to indicate to an aeroplane in the approach way, which is
approaching for the purpose of laLding, its position in the vertical
plane relative to a predetermined safe path of descent for landing, and
so arranged as to show an orange-yellow light when the aeroplane is
above the said path, a green light when it is within the said path, and a
red light when it is below the said path;
(b) Runway threshold lights means a line of lights placed across the end
of a runway or landing strip to indicate the usable limit thereof, the
lir-e being at right angles te the axis of the runway or landing strip, the
lights to be equally spaced and not less than four in number and to
show green in the direction of approach.

Dangerous Lights.
49. No light shall be exhibited by any person at an aerodrome which may
endanger the safety of aircraft, whether by reason of glare or by causing confusion
with or preventing clear visual reception of the lights or signals required by these
Rules to be displayed.

Lighting of Obstructions.
50. Fixed red lights shall be displayed-
(a) on all obstructions within the manoeuvring area;
(b) on all obstructions within the approach way;
(c) on all other obstructions in the vicinity of the aerodrome which, in the
opinion of Governor, constitute a danger to aircraft in flight.
Flashing red lights may, however, be displayed to mark particularly dangerous
or extensive obstructions.

Lighting for Landings and Take-offs.
51. (1) The landing strip or strips (where take-offs and landings are made on
parallel runways) which afford the most favourable conditions for the landing or
take-off of an aeroplane at the time of using the aerodrome, having regard to
the strength and direction of the wind and all other relevant circumstances, shall
be illuminated by fixed lights in the manner described in this Rule as may be
appropriate and no other part of the manoeuvring area shall be so illuminated at
the same time, except for such lights as may be necessary for guiding aeroplanes
manoeuvring on the ground.
(2) Non-runway Aerodromes.-At an aerodrome where a runway is not being
used for landing or take-off, the landing strip in use shall be illuminated by one of
the following methods :
Method A.
(i) By floodlight, and an illuminated landing T;
(ii) in addition, by white boundary lights spaced 300 feet apart along the
boundary of the aerodrome.
