In theory, this agreement will make it easier to accept aircraft built in China within the European Union. The same is naturally true for aircraft built in the EU inside China. While there is nothing new to see that European planes are being built in China (Airbus is the most obvious), the latest result could be that of Chinese planes flying in The European skies. In May last year, the EU and China signed the agreement to “support global trade in aircraft and related products” by eliminating “unnecessary duplication” in assessment and certification activities carried out by the relevant authorities. In addition, the agreement will prevent civil aviation authorities from carrying out double assessments and unnecessary certification activities for aviation products, which will result in lower costs in the aviation sector (source: European Commission). According to BASA, it will be easier for manufacturers and suppliers of ETSO (European Technical Standard Order) items to obtain CTSOA (Chinese Technical Standard Orders Authorization) certificates issued by CAAC and vice versa. The ETSO published by EASA is a minimum standard for certain components, equipment and materials used in civilian aircraft. The parts of the ETSO therefore have their own official approval (source: AERO Impulse). This agreement is the result of years of successful efforts by experts from the European Commission, EESA and CAAC. While this agreement covers a wide range of aviation aspects, including licensing and staff training and air transport services, we focus on mutual acceptance of certificates and the “free movement of civil aviation products.” The normalization of diplomatic relations between Bahrain and Israel has resulted in a new maintenance agreement under which Gulf Air aircraft are maintained by Israel Aerospace Industries. IAI states that its aviation group has a “comprehensive technical response” to all Gulf Air aircraft that … Aviation is the safest, fastest and most efficient form of long-distance transport.
More than 40 million flights took off worldwide in 2016, ensuring that millions of passengers reached their destinations safely (source: IATA). In order to ensure aviation safety, international aviation safety standards have been established and must be properly implemented to ensure that they meet their objectives. However, in 2016, according to reports from the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the global average of implementation of international civil aviation safety standards was estimated at only 63%. These estimates illustrate a lack of international aviation security in different regions, as not all countries are able to implement sustainable safety surveillance systems without delay, in accordance with international standards.
