EASA presents practical results of smart regulation and risk-based approach – many waypoints of the EASA GA Roadmap have been reached – other highlights include BlackShape certification
At AERO 2017, EASA has presented a number of tangible results of its GA strategy based on minimum necessary rules and a flexible, risk-based approach. The strategy’s key objectives have now mostly been reached, and they mean good news for pilots, training schools, manufacturers and, in general, aircraft users and owners.
Also in the scope of AERO, which celebrated its 25-years anniversary, new and cutting-edge aircraft and other aviation technology such as the Italian-made light aircraft Black Shape TC 115 received EASA Type Certification, handed over by EASA Certification Director Trevor Woods. Among the turbine-engine aeroplanes, the Socata TBM 910 received the EASA Type Certificate, and the Quest Kodiak 100A model was given EASA validation of its FAA Type Certificate. Further events included the signing of a Charter, signed by 3 flight sharing companies (COAVMI, Flyt.club, Wingly) respectively, to promote the safety of non-commercial GA flights with light aircraft.
EASA keeps word on its GA Roadmap objectives
Much progress has been made on alleviations for training schools and better access to Instrument Flying for GA pilots, the stand-alone OPS rules for Balloons and Sailplanes, the single set of rules for specialised operations, simplified maintenance rules and specifications for changes and repairs.
EASA’s re-written CS-23: great potential for industry!
EASA‘s re-written CS-23 certification rules for small aircraft will enable innovative solutions to enhance safety and ease red tape, time and costs. The new rules establish objective and design-independent requirements. New designs will not be hampered by detailed prescriptive rules. Industry took a positive stand on the new CS-23 at AERO and greatly welcomed its potential!
