GCAA holds meeting on new regulations
Dubai, June 22, 2011
The General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) recently conducted an industry familiarization session on its newly issued civil aviation regulations at Emirates Airlines Engineering auditorium in Dubai.
The session introduced CAR M and CAR 21, and changes to existing CAR 145 based on European standards. The GCAA is responsible to regulate aviation activities relating to airworthiness of an aircraft to ensure aviation safety in the UAE.
Around 132 representatives from UAE Aviation sector attended the familiarization session that was presented by GCAA specialists.
“The GCAA is working hard to bring its regulations in line with the international requirements which will enhance aviation safety and help the GCAA to work towards international agreements, hence enhancing international acceptability of the approvals and certificates issued by the GCAA,” said Ismaeil Al Balooshi, executive director, Aviation Safety Affairs.
“We appreciate the support from the industry and I am confident that as the industry grows the GCAA will develop more partnership to support the growth,” he added.
Ahmed Al Rawahi, director of Airworthiness, said: “It is an important time for the GCAA as it is transforming from its old regulatory regime to new which is in line with the European regulations. This would require even more cooperation between the GCAA and the Industry.”
The International Civil Aviation Organization (Icao) mandates states to formulate modern and updated regulations in the safety oversight management of the aviation activities.
The GCAA is always focusing on improving aviation safety and is continuously modernizing its safety regulations by updating them for aligning with Icao requirements – TradeArabia News Service
