ICAO NGAP Conference

Regional Air Suport participated as an exhibitor at the 3rd ICAO NGAP & TRAINAIR PLUS Regional Conference held at Pullman Bucharest – World Trade Center in Bucharest, ROMANIA, from 28 to 30 June 2011.

This Regional Conference has been organized by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and hosted by the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure (MTI) of Romania, Romanian Civil Aeronautical Authority (RCAA), National Airports Company Bucharest (CNAB) and Romanian Air Traffic Services (ROMATSA).

The aviation industry is challenged by a difficult economic context, changing demographics and new technologies with far-reaching potential. States are also facing similar situation with respect to human development and resource planning for the conduct of aviation safety oversight activities. This is especially critical as large contingent of the current generation of aviation professionals will retire, access to affordable training and education is increasingly problematic, and aviation competes with other industry sectors for attracting highly skilled professionals. In this context, it becomes urgent to propose a new regulatory environment for the recruitment, education, training and retention of the next generation of aviation professionals. Therefore, the 3rd ICAO NGAP & TRAINAIR PLUS Regional Conference has been held in preparation for the continued growth of the air transportation system and to address these challenges.

The objective of this Regional Conference were:

To develop awareness and establish effective communication links at a regional level with States, regional organizations, operators, the industry, training providers and organizations, and students;

To provide a forum to exchange best practices and experiences on various NGAP related matters at the regional level; and

To Reach out to the Next Generation: opened a discussion link between ICAO, the aviation community and the students in order to target and better direct NGAP initiatives.

Regional Air Suport is supporting the objectives of NGAP by providing high quality training for the industry as an IATA Authorised Training Center for Cargo Professionals, as a Romanian CAA authorised provider of training courses for airport staff or airport security courses authorized by the Romanian Ministry of Transports or through the pilotschool to all those wanting to embrace a carrier as private, commercial or airline transport pilot.
