Prior to acceptance by the pilot-in-command of the Operational Flight Plan (OFP), operational control, as delegated by the Operations Manager in the company operations manual, is exercised jointly by the flight dispatcher and the pilot-in-command of a flight. fter the pilot-in-command accepts the Operational Flight Plan, the flight dispatcher and the pilot-in-command share responsibility for Flight !atch. "he flight dispatcher and the pilot-in-command shall share pertinent and related flight information, including any proposed changes to the Operational Flight Plan. fter the pilot-in-command accepts the Operational Flight Plan, the flight dispatcher and the pilot-in-command share responsibility for Flight !atch. Once a flight has commenced, the final decision on any changes to the Operational Flight Plan shall be ta#en by the pilot-incommand based on considerations of safety. For the purpose of operational control systems, a flight is deemed to be $commenced$ after bra#e release for ta#e-off. %imited pilot self-dispatch of flights may be permitted at those enroute stops &here a lac# of communications facilities pre'ents the coauthority dispatch of a flight. (n such cases, (name of air operator) shall de'elop, and submit to "ransport )anada - )i'il 'iation for appro'al, these additional procedures are intended to compensate for the lac# of flight dispatcher participation in the flight*s next operational flight plan.
