In November 2021 the second workshop delivered by AESA Subject Matter Experts (SME) to the SAAU personnel and Ukrainian stakeholders was dedicated to introducing delegates to the European requirements to practice as Aero-Medical Examiner (AME), and to broaden the concepts that were introduced in the first workshop.
The main objective of the second workshop was to:
The presentations from the workshops were distributed to the delegates to be used in the future as reference documents by the inspectors of the SAAU, aero-medical centres and practitioners.
Since the project commenced in 2019, the consortium has been working with Ukraine’s aviation regulator to adapt the National Air Operations and Flight Crew Licensing regulations to the EASA regulations. As the Authority is set to transition to these new regulations by end of 2021, the objective of these events was to provide the SAAU personnel and the Ukrainian industry with guidance on implementation of rules related to Flight Time Limitation and Approved Training Organisation under EU Air Operations and Flight Crew Licensing regulations.
“As our partners in Ukraine approach the transition to EU Air Operations and Flight Crew Licensing regulations, it is important that we provide the Authority personnel and relevant industry stakeholders with the right tools to enable smooth conversion. I would like to thank our consortium partners for their collaboration in supporting the Authority towards safer and sustainable development of aviation system in Ukraine”. Richard Dobson, Contract Manager for SAFER-U, commented.
