For more than 10-years commercial aerodromes should have implemented a functioning Safety Management System (SMS), based on ICAO requirements and Guidance Material (i.e. ICAO Safety Management Manual Doc 9859/Annex 19), or national regulations.
Since the adoption of EU Commission Regulation 139/2014, before 31st December 2017, aerodrome operators shall be required to demonstrate to their competent authorities the compliance of their Management System (MS), integrating an SMS, to the new European regulations.
While these new regulations are somewhat based on ICAO, they do include new elements, which differ in content and structure, and therefore may impact existing concepts, responsibilities and requirements related to aerodrome organization, management and safety management. Adapting existing management systems has been the greatest challenge, recently, faced by many aerodrome operators.
Attendees of this 2-day training course will gain the necessary knowledge to adapt and extend their existing MS and SMS in order to fulfil the new European requirements, and to demonstrate compliance within the conversion of their aerodrome certificate.
This course will provide first a detailed overview of the structure of the new requirements: Implementing Rules (IRs), Acceptable and Alternative Means of Compliance (AMC/AltMoC), and Guidance Material (GM). New elements, such as “personnel and training requirements”, “compliance monitoring and record keeping”, “coordination with other organisations” will be explained and demystified based on current best practices already implemented at different European aerodromes.
Attendees will be encouraged to participate by providing examples of strengths and weaknesses of their existing MS, SMS, and other elements such as compliance monitoring and quality management system).
airsight offers this training course on request, worldwide. At the end of the course, all participants will receive an airsight certificate based on EASA training regulations, which is highly recognized throughout the aviation industry.
