GENERAL AVIATION SAFETY STRATEGY PAPER ENDORSED BY THE EASA MANAGEMENT BOARD
David Roberts, EAS President, reports on ‘the first step’ and ‘a majormilestone’
At its meeting on 18th September, the EASA Management Board (MB) endorsed the GA sub group’s paper on a future safety strategy for GA. The MB commissioned the paper in March 2012 following a paper written by EAS with IAOPA (Europe). It is the result of work from April to July of a group of GA personnel including two EAS board members, 5 NAAs, the Commission and EASA, led by the French DGAC’s Patrick Cipriani.
The endorsement is a major milestone in the journey towards a more proportionate approach to European safety rulemaking for GA. The principles, guidelines and 10 recommended actions covered by the paper now have to be programmed into the work of the European Commission, EASA, the Member States and indeed GA representative bodies. This work is unlikely to be concluded in a short period, though some actions are planned to take place over the next six to nine months.
