Background

TRACECA II Project Objective


Overall Objective:
Support the sustainable development of civil aviation in the beneficiary countries, harmonise regulations and working practices to comply with international standards (ICAO), international best practices and prepare for the implementation of international standards and EU regulations concerning security, ATM and the environment.

Specific Objectives:
  • To continue to acquaint aviation personnel (in the sectors of security, ATM and environment of the beneficiary countries) from the administration and from operators with the requirements of international and European conventions, resolutions and standards.
  • To continue to provide aviation personnel (in the sectors of security, ATM and environment of the beneficiary countries) from the administration and from operators with improved knowledge, skills and capacities in the relevant technical sectors.
  • To contribute to further development and strengthening of the administrative capacity of the civil aviation authorities of the beneficiary countries in their implementation of international and, where relevant, European security, ATM and environmental standards.
  • To prepare the civil aviation authorities of the beneficiary countries for closer relations with (Central Asia) or integration (Caucasus, Moldova, Ukraine) to Pan-European aviation structures.
  • To promote closer regional cooperation between the aviation administrations of the beneficiary countries to optimise the use of scarce resources.
Requested outputs: 
  • Progress as regards regulatory approximation towards the EU aviation acquis for the ENPI countries;
  • Contributing to the extension of the Common Aviation Area to the ENPI countries; 
  • Progress as regards security issues and ATM safety for the Central Asian countries.

TRACECA I Project Objective

Introduce aviation personnel (in the sectors of safety, security and environment of the beneficiary countries) from the administration and from operators to the requirements of international conventions, resolutions and standards of the EU/EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) and of ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation).

  • Provide aviation personnel (in the sectors of safety, security and environment of the beneficiary countries) from the administration and from operators with improved knowledge, skills and capacities in the relevant technical sectors.
  • Strengthen the administrative capacity of the civil aviation authorities of the beneficiary countries to further develop and to fully implement international and, where relevant, European safety standards (EU-Ops, maintenance standards, occurrence reporting and just culture, oversight tools).
  • Prepare the authorities of the beneficiary countries for closer relations with (Central Asia) or integration (Caucasus, Moldova, Ukraine) to Pan-European aviation structures.
  • Provide support measures in the context of negotiations between beneficiary countries and the European Union on aviation agreements in the fields of safety and security, and in the context of safety discussions (blacklist).
  • Promote closer regional cooperation between the aviation administrations of the beneficiary countries to optimise the use of scarce resources.


Outputs

1. A complementary assessment and updated analysis of the situation is provided for the aviation sectors of safety, security and environment in each country.

2. A programme of training courses is implemented for aviation personnel from the administrations and operators (in the sectors of safety, security and environment) of the beneficiary countries, to strengthen their technical skills and their English language knowledge in the relevant areas.

3. A capacity-building programme in aviation safety, security and environment management systems is implemented and specific expertise support is provided, in order to develop the necessary regulatory frameworks, technical and institutional conditions, regional management and monitoring systems in line the requirements of international conventions, resolutions, recommendations and standards of the EU/EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) and of ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation).
Regional and international study tours will be organised for aviation personnel (in the sectors of safety, security and environment) of the beneficiary countries, allowing networking and demonstrating the application of best practices of knowledge, skills and capacities.

4. An awareness, communication and visibility programme is defined and implemented for all aviation safety, security and environment components of the project.
