One way to support the self-sufficiency of developing countries in aviation, is to strengthen their civil aviation institutions by enabling States to better face the continuously changing aviation environment. A new implementation support agreement has been formalized with Sudan which aims to heighten the application of the ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) in the State.
Undertaken in close coordination with the ICAO Middle East Regional Office, this marks the first technical cooperation agreement with Sudan. It will see ICAO provide an array of capacity-building services, such as the provision of aerodrome inspection, airworthiness, air operations and personnel licensing experts. The project also encompasses the development of training programmes, checklists, procedures and guidance material for the Sudan Civil Aviation Authority, which represent implementation support services provided by the ICAO Technical Cooperation Bureau.
The new agreement was signed by ICAO Secretary General Juan Carlos Salazar (front right) and the Director General of the Sudan Civil Aviation Authority, Mr. Fakhreldin Osman (front left), on the sidelines of the 2nd Civil Aviation Legal Advisor’s Forum (CALAF/2) in Muscat, Oman.
