Collaboration with Commonwealth of Independent States Strengthened

Cooperation between the European Aviation Safety Agency and the Inter-State Aviation Committee of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) has been intensified, addressing in particular the continued airworthiness of pre-CIS legacy built aircraft.
Extending their current working arrangement, both organisations signed at the end of January the implementation procedures for design approvals of aircraft, engines and propellers from the European Union. This agreement complements the implementation procedures for design approvals of aircraft, engines and propellers from the CIS, previously signed in 2004.
In addition both organisations agreed on an action plan to address the continued airworthiness of pre-CIS legacy aircraft operated in new EU Member States, in particular of Kamov 26, IL-76 and MI-8 aircraft.
