The European Aviation Safety Agency has released its strategic plan for aviation safety for the next four years.
The highlights of the 2018-2022 plan and rulemaking program include:
EASA proposes what it describes as a rulemaking “cool-down” over the next five years relative to recent years. It states that it is emphasizing the support of recently accepted rules and focus on oversight and safety promotion campaigns rather than proceeding to craft rules at the same torrid pace.
A full review of research actions has been conducted that has led to new research projects.
EASA wants to spotlight the harmonization and facilitation of cooperation and technical training campaigns at the regional level in support of the “No Country Left Behind” decree.
And as part of the global aviation safety blueprint, a project team is being set up to advance the plan and present an more advanced version at the next regional aviation safety group-Europe gathering.
They are keeping a close eye on oversight, global tactics for tackling identified “high-risk categories” and approaches for backing state safety programs.
