AKIPRESS.COM - This agreement will allow the AAK to “enhance competence and qualification of its staff, as well as to transfer the best experience from aviation authorities to Kazakhstan”, the International Airport Review reports.
CAA International (CAAi), the technical cooperation arm of the UK Civil Aviation Authority (UK CAA), has been awarded a new consultancy project to help the Kazakhstan aviation regulator (AAK) adopt a new aviation oversight model, based on that used in the UK.
The new regulatory system will support Kazakhstan’s air transport sector growth and provide a foundation for Kazakhstan’s aviation industry to become a world player.
Over the next 12 months, regulatory experts from the UK CAA will assist the AAK to review Kazakhstan’s primary legalisation and propose ways to further incorporate EASA/EU provisions and alignments with the UK CAA model. A second workstream will focus on the organisational design of AAK and provide recommendations in accordance with the UK CAA model. CAAi has also been tasked with conducting a training needs analysis of AAK’s technical staff. The outcome of this analysis will influence AAK’s inspectorate training plan.
