Canadian North and Nolinor Aviation, two prominent Canadian airline operators, have recently selected Invicta by Jetaire as their preferred ignition mitigation means and method of compliance to Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) airworthiness directive 2020-18-13.

This strategic decision underscores both operators’ commitment to meeting regulatory requirements for fuel tank safety well ahead of the upcoming 2026 mandatory timeline.


The FAA airworthiness directive 2020-18-13, which addresses ignition source mitigation in the fuel tanks of certain aircraft, has prompted Canadian North and Nolinor Aviation to proactively seek effective solutions to ensure the utmost safety and compliance within their fleets.

Invicta by Jetaire

Invicta by Jetaire is a cutting-edge ignition mitigation system that has garnered acclaim for its advanced technology and proven effectiveness in preventing ignition sources in aircraft fuel tanks.

Its adoption by Canadian North and Nolinor Aviation reflects their dedication to staying at the forefront of safety and innovation in the aviation industry. Invicta has received certification as an approved ignition mitigation means with both the FAA and European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), as well as Transport Canada under supplemental type certificate SA23-7.

Jetaire CEO, Michael Williams, celebrates the adoption of Invicta by both airlines, stating: “Our Invicta technology continues to see accelerated adoption by commercial and corporate operators due to its maintenance-free design, low cost of ownership, and industry leading warranty.”

Commitment to Safety

By implementing Jetaire’s Invicta flammability reduction means, Nolinor and Canadian North are taking proactive steps to enhance the safety of their Boeing 737 fleet.

Invicta is specifically designed to minimize the risk of ignition events in the centre wing tank by replacing vacated space within the tank or ullage with the industry’s only patented reticulated polyurethane foam solution.

The decision to adopt Jetaire’s Invicta ignition mitigation means is a testament to Nolinor and Canadian North’s dedication to continuous improvement and their willingness to invest in advanced safety technologies.

By utilizing these mitigation means, the airlines are effectively reducing the likelihood of engine-related incidents, which can have severe consequences for both passengers and crew members.

Furthermore, this adoption signifies the airlines’ compliance with the Airworthiness Directive 2020-18-13. This directive serves as a guideline for operators to ensure that their aircraft are quipped with adequate safety features and procedures.

By embracing this directive and adopting Jetaire’s Invicta ignition mitigation means, Nolinor and Canadian North are not only meeting regulatory requirements but also staying ahead of the curve in terms of safety standards.

On the selection of Invicta ahead of the upcoming compliance timeline, Willams added: “Operators such as Nolinor, Canadian North, and WestJet, who also selected Invicta for their 737 fleet, are not only ensuring they will have compliant aircraft ahead of 2026 but are also benefitting from today’s pricing and installation scheduling.”

The adoption of Invicta by Canadian North and Nolinor Aviation marks a significant step in bolstering aviation safety and compliance within the Canadian aviation industry.
