The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) has appointed CAA International (CAAi), the advisory arm of the UK Civil Aviation Authority (UK CAA), to help strengthen CAAT’s aviation safety oversight and compliance with the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO). The CAAi project will involve a team of around ten experts from the UK CAA to work collaboratively with CAAT to recertify Thai registered AOCs, to address the Significant Safety Concern (SSC) raised by ICAO in 2015. CAAi will also conduct on-the-job flight operations training to CAAT Inspectors, to help increase their core inspectorate competencies in accordance with international standards. The final work stream includes full-scale ICVM preparation assistance. This activity will cover all of ICAO’s eight critical elements of a safety oversight system ahead of Thailand’s impending ICVM safety audit by ICAO. The project is expected to commence in May 2016.
