Miscellaneous Papers & Reports

The report aims at providing an overview of how the EPAS actions owned by the States are being implemented.

It highlights areas where possible difficulties lay and brings up issues (in an aggregated way) and good practices which could serve as examples for other States.

This report’s compilation is voluntary on the part of EASA. It responds to an effort to monitor EPAS implementation by collecting all relevant information provided by States in one document, useful for the stakeholders and enticing for the general reader alike.

The Practical Guide on ‘Assigning pilots to oversight tasks’ is made available on EASA website. This document is the outcome of the Working Group established following the ‘Proposal for a Competency Framework for the Competent Authorities' presented by EASA to the Management Board meeting 2016-02.

European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) joined Engine and Aircraft Certification Working Group (EACWG) report on improving engine/aircraft interface certification practices.

The document ‘Proposal for a Competency Framework for the Competent Authorities' Inspectors’ is now available on the EASA website. This report illustrates the outcome of the Working Group established by EASA Management Board that developed a competency framework for Civil Aviation Authority Inspectors.

Activity Report - June 2015 – May 2016

Aviation by nature operates across borders. Member States and their competent authorities, therefore need to work together. Such cooperation between competent authorities ensures that aviation activities of organisations/persons active in one Member States, but certified by the competent authority of another Member State, are properly overseen.

After the initial draft was issued in July 2015, several comments were received and incorporated. At the same time the text has been updated to reflect the amendment of ICAO Annex 19.
The document is published under the provision of Art. 5(3) of Regulation (EU) No 628/2013: “The Agency shall provide competent authorities of Member States with relevant information to support the uniform implementation of the applicable requirements.” and is intended to offer a possible solutions to a common issue.

European Plan for Aviation Safety

The EPAS, a key component of the European Aviation Safety Programme, provides a coherent and transparent framework for safety work at European level, helping the identification of major safety risks and defining the actions to take. It also supports the Member States of the European Union to implement their State Safety Programmes and facilitates the sharing of best practice and knowledge.

Annual Safety Review

EASA preliminary analysis of the Commercial Air Transport operations 2017

EASA's preliminary analysis of the Commercial Air Transport operations in 2017 shows the lowest number of fatal accidents in modern aviation history in 2017. 

The preliminary analysis covers both worldwide operations and those involving the 32 EASA Member States.

 

This publication provides an early overview of the aviation safety statistics for 2016 in the domain of Commercial Air Transport Aeroplanes. The reports covers both worldwide operations and those involving the 32 EASA Member States.

Safety Promotion

Promoting a safe and extensive career in Aviation

Aviation is a complex environment covering a variety of activities. The human component is one of the most important elements in this system, thus having fit aeronautical personnel is essential in order to ensure aviation safety. This creates the need for Aeromedical Examiners (AMEs) to be aware of the different operational environment and the corresponding risk factors.
 

The purpose of this document is to share recommended practices and information on Crew Resource Management (CRM) and promote the development of CRM training for both Air Operators having CRM training responsibilities, and Competent Authorities having oversight responsibilities.

The EASA Safety Risk Management process has identified CRM as one of the most important safety factor in the domain of Commercial Air Transport (CAT) Aeroplane operations.

Issue 2

EHEST has developed this comprehensive and fully illustrated Helicopter Flight Instructor guide based on a manual developed by the Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and other international organisations. CASA kindly made the contents of the publication available to EHEST for dissemination without restriction. In Issue 1, EHEST incorporated changes to reflect European terminology and syllabus content and also enriched the manual.

This leaflet aims to reinforce to pilots the need to understand aviation weather, including the appropriate threat assessments and strategies to adopt in relation to pre-flight, in-flight and post-flight operations for a helicopter flight to be conducted under Visual Meteorology Conditions (VMC).

This leaflet discusses the factors affecting helicopter performance. It then provides pilots with guidance, tips and techniques to ensure safe operations.

Most of performance-related accidents can be avoided if the pilot is conscious of the performance limitations of the operated rotorcraft.

Pilots should keep in mind that performance calculations must be part of each and every flight preparation briefing.

One of the core capabilities required to support effective implementation of safety management is the ability to monitor the effectiveness of an organisation's management systems. Competent authorities must be able to assess the effectiveness of management systems as part of their oversight. The EASA Management System Assessment tool is intended to support authorities with this task.

Practical guide

This Practical Guide on ‘Management of hazards related to new business models of commercial air transport operators’ is part of EASA’s safety promotion strategy. The Guide has been developed by a group of dedicated safety management managers from Europe’s airline industry and includes a number of easy to use and practical examples for SMS managers for hazard identification and management in the following five areas:

The Mission Request Vade Mecum has been developed to help emergency front-line personnel to safely deal with helicopters. Policemen, firefighters, ambulances, and all the personnel who may be involved in requesting and handling a helicopter mission will benefit from the tool. A comprehensive document explains what information should be given to the helicopter pilot and describes how to set up the landing area. Together with the emergency dispatch centre they can go through the R.O.M.A. checklist in order to quickly check all the required information and  safety provisions.

Here is a link to the International Helicopter Safety Team (IHST) webpage dealing with Safety Management. Several Safety Promotion materials and toolkits are available.
In particular, SMS toolkits (please use the latest version) are available in English and Spanish.

ECAST sponsored the European Plan for the Prevention of Runway Incursion (EAPPRI) and ECAST organisations participated in its development.
