EASA launches Airworthiness Convergence project with Ukraine
Cologne, Germany - It follows the signature of an Arrangement between the EC and the SAAU signed last January
A new chapter in EU-Ukraine aviation relations started today with the official launch of a new cooperation project between EASA and SAAU (State Aviation Administration of Ukraine) in the area of airworthiness. The three-year project, managed by the Agency, is designed to support the implementation in Ukraine of EU airworthiness rules, and thus prepare the country’s participation to EASA’s activities. The launch follows the signature of an Arrangement between the European Commission and the State Aviation Administration of Ukraine on the convergence of certification systems on 16 January 2017. To support this Arrangement, the project will focus on the development and implementation of a so-called “Convergence document”, and on technical cooperation activities in the fields of initial and continuing airworthiness.
