Welcome to Uniting Aviation!

Successful Business takes Off

Most of our readers already know what we do…

We are the UN specialized agency that manages the administration and governance of the Convention on International Civil Aviation. We work with 191 Member States and industry groups to reach consensus on international civil aviation Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) and policies to ensure the civil aviation sector of the world is safe, efficient, secure, economically sustainable and environmentally responsible.

icao-councilICAO works in close cooperation with other members of the United Nations family such as the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the Universal Postal Union (UPU), the World Health Organization (WHO), the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) and the International Maritime Organization (IMO).
Non-governmental organizations that also participate in ICAO’s work include the Airports Council International (ACI), the Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation (CANSO), the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC), International Coordinating Council of Aerospace Industries Associations (ICCAIA), the International Council of Aircraft Owner and Pilot Associations (IAOPA), the International Federation of Air Line Pilots’ Associations (IFALPA) and the International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers’ Associations (IFATCA).
We know if we share our community, we’ll be able to grow it.

We’ve launched this online, community-driven magazine to bring together new aviation partners and to highlight the work and collaboration of existing ones. This is a forum where our subject-matter experts can explain how our standards and policies are used by ICAO Member States to ensure that their civil aviation operations and regulations confirm to global norms. And this is a place where our partners can share their own achievements, challenges, developments and partnerships.

We’ve been around since 1944, we know how to get information out there. This platform gives us the tool we need to connect digitally with the industry; to gage the subject areas that matter to you; and to bring you updates on more aspects of the industry, more often.

We were already working together – because we do our part and you do yours, every day more than 100,000 flights are leaving airports around the world and are operating safely and reliably. We want to improve our work by sharing your efforts that support ICAO’s Strategic Objectives and our own mandate to ensure No Country is Left Behind.

How can you be part of this movement?

By contributing content. If you have insight, information, developments, videos and interactive tools that support our “safe, efficient, secure, economically sustainable and environmentally responsible” Strategic Objectives, we want you to share them with us. While newsworthy updates are appealing to enquiring minds, we’re also looking for general interest content and profiles on industry professionals around the world.

The more people contribute to this voice, the better we can extend community-driven conversations about our Strategic Objectives. By incorporating your content in Uniting Aviation, we’ll be increasing the conversations, and not only will you gain visibility, but we will be meeting our goal in Bringing Air Transport Partners Together.
