The members and observers of the Top Level Safety Team of the Middle East Aviation Safety Roadmap held their summit on 14 January 2010, key focus included progress evaluation of the steps outlined to implement the Global Aviation Safety Roadmap.
Al Suwaidi addressed members countries on the progress and challenges faced following the first year of implementing the Aviation Safety Roadmap. Ensuring equal regional representation, the Middle East Safety Team will be co-chaired by both governments and industry experts on a rotational calendar thereby increasing involvement and including broader viewpoints.
The resolutions following the summit hosted in 2008 in Abu Dhabi received strong support from leading global aviation councils including the ICAO, FSF, EASA and others.
Suwaidi added, "Both regional and global heads of aviation recognise the challenges aviation departments face during a period of widespread growth and expansion. The necessity of ensuring sufficient numbers of aviation professionals on hand, changing cultural protocol systems, preparing to adopt and include the latest in aviation technology and larger aircrafts, channelling commercial and military air traffic are just a few among primary concerns a rapidly developing region like the GCC faces."
It was agreed during the summit to focus on ensuring the highest air safety protocol, systems, safety management programs and standards, and collaborative strategy that aims to make air safety management in the Middle East a paradigm for other countries to follow.
