The LBA was audited by EASA. What did they find? Was the severity of the pan European organization in line with one of its broader themes?
European Aviation Safety
EASA is seeking to expand its European safety regulation by directly regulating production, surveillance, cybersecurity and the data systems which feed SMS.
A recent report recommends the creation of a common European risk assessment of conflict zones and a quick alert mechanism to notify the aviation community.
It would be wise for the FAA to take a more perspicacious approach and try to learn from other CAAs. They serve as useful aviation policy laboratories.
Partly due to stresses created by competition from Gulf Carriers, but like the Delta/A4A situation, there were divides about whether the threat was legal.
A review of the primary findings of EASA’s response to the Germanwings tragedy.
TCCA, EASA and the FAA agree to rely on each other’s regulatory systems. What does that mean and what is the significance?
The EU has issued a “new safety authorization scheme” and has granted certifications to 20 Third Country Operators. The press release trumpets that this new scheme will cut “red-tape by replacing today’s maze of national authorisations with a single document and maintaining high level of aviation safety in Europe. EASA will be the ‘one-stop shop’, delivering the authorisation to airlines.” Each carrier will receive an individual TCO, but the historical country-to country safety recognitions seem to be ignored. The TCO seems to be beyond historic safety structures.
