Dangerous Goods

Sable Aviation is certified by Transport Canada to transport dangerous goods by air. We are authorized to carry all dangerous goods in classes 1 (explosives), 2 (gases), 3 (flammable liquids), 4 (flammable solids), 5 (oxidizing substances and organix peroxides), 8 (corrosives), and 9 (other miscellaneous types). We can also carry class 6.1 (toxic substances) and specific items in class 7 (radioactive materials).

Please note that we are certified for transporting of dangerous goods only - the documentation, packaging, and labelling requirements must be met by having the dangerous goods looked after by a certified shipper such as DG Atlantic, a local company certified for DG shipping who can package your goods to both ICAO and IATA standards.

Safety is our primary concern, so it is vital that you are cognizant of what items you are carrying in your cargo that, although seemingly harmless on the ground, could pose a threat to safety in the air, either during normal carriage or in the unlikely event of an emergency. Things such as aerosols (with a few exeptions), many paints, some batteries, and certain chemicals are just a few examples of items that may be forbidden to be transported by air, or may have certain restrictions such as quantity limitations or special packaging. One indication that your item may be classed as dangerous goods is if it contains one of the following warning symbols:

Please mention any items that you are carrying that may be classed as dangerous goods when making your booking, or at the very latest, to your pilot.
