EASA at AERO 2018: A vision for the future of General Aviation (GA)

Implementation of EASA’s simpler, lighter and better rules for the GA community has started to happen – milestones have been reached - enabling safe innovative technologies and safety promotion a growing priority

At this year’s AERO international GA fair (Friedrichshafen, Germany, 18th- 21st April 2018), EASA Certification Director Trevor Woods and his team presented the latest achievements of the GA Roadmap where milestones have been reached and implementation of many improved rules has started to happen. “The GA Roadmap project succeeded in establishing an effective cooperative spirit between EASA, stakeholders and National Aviation Authorities. A true example of Safety Together!”, he said, using the new EASA slogan for Safety Promotion activities.

Among the highlights this year are the simplified rulebook for balloon operations, Declared Training Organisations that make life easier for flying schools, and the revamp of Part-21 to simplify the certification process and the approval of organisations designing and producing light aircraft.
