GAMA Hails Canada-EU Air Safety Pact

11 August 2011


Canada's General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) has welcomed the entry into force of the Canada-European Union Aviation Safety Agreement.

Following an exchange of diplomatic notes at the end of July between the country and the economic bloc, the agreement has now been enacted.

“The entry into force of this agreement is another positive step forward for our manufacturers and the broader aviation industry,” said GAMA President and CEO Pete Bunce.  "Structured bilateral cooperation will streamline certification, continued airworthiness, and maintenance efforts between all EU member states and Canada.  By reducing redundant regulatory oversight, both authorities and industry will realize greater efficiencies in delivering new aircraft, parts and maintenance services, while simultaneously strengthening international aviation safety cooperation,” Bunce said.

As the European Aviation Safety Agency’s (EASA) authority is extended to areas not currently covered under the agreement, the two sides will be able to negotiate new annexes to the bilateral agreement. With this first major step completed, GAMA has urged both sides to move promptly on the rapid implementation of the agreement, so that the benefits of the agreement can be realized by both industry and the authorities in a timely manner.
