Middle East & North Africa Aviation needs to beef up consumer protection and security says IATA ACCO




IATA

Infrastructure, Taxes and Charges, Consumer Protection and Security
Top IATA Agenda at AACO 




          

Casablanca - The International Air Transport Association (IATA) highlighted four priorities in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) which must be addressed for aviation to deliver maximum economic and social benefits. These are:
  • Sufficient and affordable infrastructure capacity (including air traffic management), aligned with user needs
  • Curbing the spate of unprecedented increases in taxes and charges over the last year
  • Aligning consumer protection regulations with global standards
  • Enhancing security efforts
Passenger demand in MENA is set to expand by 4.8% each year on average over the next 20 years, to become a market of 400 million passengers in 2035.


If that demand is met, the number of jobs supported by aviation in the region will grow from 2.4 million to 3.9 million over the same period.


And aviation’s contribution to regional GDP will increase from $157.2 billion to $359.5 billion.


"Aviation is the business of freedom. Its success generates prosperity. A safe, secure, efficient and sustainable air transport industry contributes to the welfare of nations. Strengthening aviation, in partnership with governments, pays huge social and economic dividends. Airlines in MENA face very different business challenges. But whether building or protecting competitiveness, cost-efficient infrastructure, global standards, reasonable costs and secure operations are critical," said A. de Juniac, IATA Director General and CEO, at the Arab Air Carriers Organization (AACO) 49th Annual General Meeting in Casablanca, Morocco. He continued:


  • Infrastructure : "Infrastructure in MENA reflects the foresight of Governments in the region to capture aviation’s economic and social benefits. However to keep this competitive advantage, continuous consultation is needed so that capital expenditure aligns with industry growth, required service levels and acceptable costs," 
De Juniac also sounded a note of caution on infrastructure privatization and urged governments to effectively balance public and private interests. "The desire to harness commercial discipline in managing airports is understandable. But, despite many airport privatizations around the world we have not seen any outcomes that have truly met expectations. It’s important to learn from experiences elsewhere, especially ensuring that any privatization is driven by real user consultation throughout the process,"
De Juniac called for cooperation to modernize air traffic management (ATM) in the region.  
"Studies show that the average ATM delay in the Gulf is 29 minutes with the potential to double by 2025. Without an increase in the overall efficiency of the ATM systems in the region through improved airspace design, MENA’s world-class hubs will be compromised with gridlock. We appreciate the many programs that are in progress - including the GCC Air Navigation Committee, the Middle East ATM Enhancement Program and others. But we must drive these efforts even harder to achieve a real breakthrough," said de Juniac.
  • Rising costs : IATA urged cooperation to reverse unprecedented rises in taxes and charges - about $700 million in extra costs in 2015 alone. "Every dollar that a passenger spends in the region creates jobs and spreads prosperity. And every dollar collected in taxes or charges is an incentive for travelers to go elsewhere. A low cost structure is a key component of the region’s success—particularly in the Gulf," said de Juniac.

  • Consumer Protection Regulations : IATA urged global standards to guide the proliferation of consumer protection initiatives in the region. Regulators in Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar, Jordan and the Arab Civil Aviation Commission are in various stages of activity in this regard. De Juniac called on governments in the region to keep the global standards and recommended practices arrived at through the processes of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) at the core of any developments.

  • Security : Security is a global issue. Keeping aviation secure is integral to a state’s responsibility for national security as highlighted in a UN Security Council Resolution earlier this year. Challenges include insider threats, landside exposure at airports, overflight of conflict zones, and cyber security. "Security is clearly a government responsibility. To stay a step ahead of those who would do aviation harm, intelligence gathering by governments and information sharing among governments and with industry is essential. Industry also plays a vital role in supporting their efforts. It’s a top priority for IATA and we will become even more active," said de Juniac.

COLUMBIA PLANE CRASH, 76 DEAD, 5 SURVIVORS, BRAZILIAN FOOTBALL TEAM ON BOARD. UK AAIB TEAM OF INSPECTORS FLYING TO COLUMBIA TO ASSIST IN THE INVESTIGATION


ABC NEWS TV COMPREHENSIVE PACKAGE:

http://abcnews.go.com/International/early-evidence-points-nightmare-scenario-brazilian-soccer-teams/story?id=43852713







Latest: The UK Air Accidents Investigation Branch [AAIB] is sending a team of three to Colombia to assist Aeronautica Civil with their investigation of the aircraft accident at Medellin.

The Air Accidents Investigation Branch is sending a team of three inspectors to Colombia to assist Aeronautica Civil with their investigation of the aircraft accident at Medellin.

AAIB’s involvement is as the State of Manufacture, in accordance with International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Annex 13 protocols.

Bogota (Colombia):
A chartered British Aerospace 146 short-haul aircraft operated by  Bolivian charter airline LaMia Airlines Flight 2933 [Registration CP-2933]  from Viru Viru International Airport in Bolivia to Medellin, Colombia crashed just outside Medellin.with 81 people on board, including a Brazilian first division football team heading to Colombia for a regional tournament final.

Aviation authorities said there are initial reports of at least six survivors.


"It's a tragedy of huge proportions," Medellin's Mayor Federico Gutierrez told Blu Radio, before departing for the site (set in a mountainous area outside the city) where the aircraft crashed.


Aviation authorities said the aircraft, a British Aerospace BAE 146 short-haul plane operated by Bolivian charter airline LaMia, declared an emergency at 10 p.m. Monday (0300 GMT) reporting electrical failure.


The BAE 146 has a good safety record and at one time (badged the HS 146) the RAF used the aircraft for the Queens Flight and transportation of VIPs.


The region had however been experiencing exceptionally heavy rain and severe electrical thunderstorms during the night, this might well have contributed to the incident.

Authorities and rescuers were immediately alerted however  an air force helicopter had to abort due to low visibility and poor weather conditions.

The aircraft, made a stop in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, and was transporting the first division Chapecoense football team from southern Brazil.

The team was scheduled to play on Wednesday in the first of a two-game Copa Sudamericana final against Atletico Nacional of Medellin.

The plane was carrying 72 passengers and nine crew. Local radio said the same aircraft transported Argentina's national squad for a match earlier this month in Brazil.

A video published on the team's Facebook page showed the team preparing for the flight earlier on Monday in Sao Paulo's Guarulhos international airport. In flight pictures were also posted on Twitter showing all the passengers seated and enjoying the flight. A short while later only 5 would survive. A local journalist suggests 2 of the survivors are footballers. Clearly as this is a rapidly developing situation, actual numbers of casualties may well change.


The team, from the small city of Chapeco, joined Brazil's first division in 2014, for the first time since the 1970s and progressed to the Copa Sudamericana finals last week by defeating Argentina's San Lorenzo squad. The final matches have been abandoned.

NEW CAA ELECTRONIC SYSTEM FOR FLYING DISPLAYS AND SPECIAL EVENT APPLICATIONS GOES LIVE DECEMBER 1



From December 1 2016, the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) will only accept applications for Flying Displays and Specials Events, plus Unusual Aerial Activity notifications online.


This online system will replace the existing SRG1303 and SRG1304 form applications but enables:
  • Multiple applications
  • Save the form to re-use
  • Calculate fees automatically
  • Pay by credit or debit card so the CAA can start to assess applications immediately
The CAA claims that as submissions are automatically verified, there is less chance of being able to submit an application without all the information the CAA needs to process it. 


The CAA say they will continue to accept and process 'paper' mail and email applications using SRG1303 and SRG1304 forms  that are received or post marked 30 November 2016. However applications from the December 1 2016 will have to be made electronically online.


As the majority of payments are already made by credit or debit card the CAA will also remove the BACS payment facility in the near future.

A few months late Sky News! UK drone (UAV) code has been in force since the Summer



Sky News are this morning belatedly trumpeting that a new drone UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) code has just been introduced by the Airprox board. Not so!


In reality, Aviation & Aerospace  Security Expert Julian Bray has frequently over the last 12 months reported on UAV danger and there is nothing new about a code being in place,  legislation is already available namely 2016 No. 765 CIVIL AVIATION The Air Navigation Order 2016 ) it can be viewed in full on the following link:


http://legislation.data.gov.uk/uksi/2016/765/made/data.pdf  and


The Air Navigation Order 2009 (as amended), Article 1381 states:  


1 Article 253 of the ANO details which Articles apply to small unmanned aircraft. Article 255 defines ‘small unmanned aircraft’. The ANO is available to view at http://www.legislation.gov.uk. 
Airprox 2015168


2
‘A person must not recklessly or negligently cause or permit an aircraft to endanger any person or property.’  Article 166, paragraphs 2, 3 and 4 state: 


‘(2) The person in charge of a small unmanned aircraft may only fly the aircraft if reasonably satisfied that the flight can safely be made.

(3) The person in charge of a small unmanned aircraft must maintain direct, unaided visual contact with the aircraft sufficient to monitor its flight path in relation to other aircraft, persons, vehicles, vessels and structures for the purpose of avoiding collisions.’

(4) The person in charge of a small unmanned aircraft which has a mass of more than 7kg excluding its fuel but including any articles or equipment installed in or attached to the aircraft at the commencement of its flight must not fly the aircraft

(a) in Class A, C, D or E airspace unless the permission of the appropriate air traffic control unit has been obtained;

(b) within an aerodrome traffic zone …; or

(c) at a height of more than 400 feet above the surface unless it is flying in airspace described in sub-paragraph (a) or (b) and in accordance with the requirements for that airspace.’ 

A CAA web site provides information and guidance associated with the operation of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UASs) and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). 


Additionally, the CAA has published a UAV Safety Notice which states the responsibilities for flying unmanned aircraft. 


This includes:  

‘You are responsible for avoiding collisions with other people or objects - including aircraft. 


  Do not fly your unmanned aircraft in any way that could endanger people or property.  


  It is illegal to fly your unmanned aircraft over a congested area (streets, towns and cities).  


finally… stay well clear of airports and airfields’.

Chancellor delivers downbeat fiscal Autumn Statement for the UK as it heads towards BREXIT



Sorry All, Hammond asked me to leave my sack behind...


"Since 2010, the government has made huge progress in turning the economy around following the Great Recession. The employment rate is at a record high and the deficit has fallen by almost two thirds. But more needs to be done. The deficit remains too high and productivity too low. In addition, the government wants to see more people sharing in the UK’s prosperity and ensure that the tax system is one where everyone plays by the same rules. 

In the near term, the UK’s economic outlook has become more uncertain. The British people’s decision to leave the EU presents new opportunities, but also new challenges.

The Autumn Statement sets out policies which support the economy during this transition. Alongside the forthcoming Industrial Strategy it prioritises investment to improve productivity and ultimately living standards.

It provides certainty for business to secure investment and create jobs; and reprioritises spending to build an economy that works for everyone. ............

FAA issues emergency order suspending authorization NavWorx Inc. uses to manufacture Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) navigation units.



FAA logo





FORT WORTH, Texas – The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration today issued an emergency order suspending the authorization NavWorx Inc. uses to manufacture certain Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) navigation units. Such units, when properly manufactured and operated, help to improve the safety and efficiency of aircraft operations.
 
The authorization, known as a Technical Standard Order Authorization (TSOA), enables suppliers to produce components for use on aircraft after proving that each component meets FAA standards.

Federal regulations set forth FAA’s authority to inspect suppliers’ quality systems, facilities, technical data, and products to determine whether they meet safety standards. These regulations also provide that FAA may witness any tests necessary to determine a product’s compliance.
 
The suspension order was issued after NavWorx declined on repeated occasions to allow FAA personnel to conduct the required inspections. The suspension is immediate and will remain in effect until NavWorx consents to the inspections and demonstrates compliance with FAA standards.
 
The FAA is concerned that two versions of the company’s ADS600-B units, carrying part numbers 200-0012 and 200-0013, may contain an internal Global Positioning System (GPS) chip that does not meet the FAA’s minimum performance standards for transmitting an aircraft’s accurate location.
 
On June 29, the FAA requested to inspect NavWorx’s facility to determine the specific GPS unit and software installed in part numbers 200-0012 and 200-0013, and if the units are marked correctly.

NavWorx informed the inspector that he would not be allowed inside the company’s facility. During subsequent correspondence, NavWorx agreed to allow an Aug. 31 inspection but then denied access when FAA inspectors arrived.
 
NavWorx later agreed to allow inspectors into the facility on Nov. 21 but they were again denied access.
 
Due to the company’s unwillingness to comply with these requirements, the FAA has determined that NavWorx’s continued use of its FAA authorization is contrary to the interests of safety in air commerce.

During the suspension, NavWorx may not mark or otherwise indicate that its ADS600-B units meet FAA standards.
