Mr. K.G. DeWitt
Old Town Municipal Airport,
P.O. Box 558,
Old Town, Maine,
U.S.A.

Dear Sir:-

1.  Your letter addressed to the Acting District Superintendent of Air Regulations at Moncton, N.B., dealing with the cancellation of the Canadian registration covering Republic RC-3 aircraft, CF-HAY was referred to this office for reply.

2.  We do not register liens, encumbrances, mortgages etc., against the title to an aircraft.  Therefore we are unable to certify that the recorded rights have been satisfied or that consent has been given to the transfer of registry.  The Civil Aeronautics Administration do accept a certification that the foreign registration has been cancelled when the foreign country does not supply information with respect to recorded rights.

3.  We hereby certify that Canadian registration and identification CH-HAY covering Republic RC-3 aircraft, Serial No. 786, registered in the name of Alton Brown MacDonald, Box No. 71, R.R. No. 1, Moncton, N. B., was cancelled on the Canadian Aircraft Register effective October 25th, 1954.

Yours truly,
(R. Dodds)
Controller of Civil Aviation.
