Runway Safety Rep Leads Webinar for ICAO
NATCA Runway Safety/Runway Status Lights Representative Bridget Singratanakul (Gee) helped lead an International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) webinar this month featuring presenters from across the global aviation community, including ICAO, the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the Airports Council International (ACI), the Civil Air Navigation Services Organization (CANSO), the International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers’ Associations (IFATCA), the International Federation of Air Line Pilots’ Associations (IFALPA), and the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).
The webinar, entitled “Runway Safety: A Key to Re-building Confidence Post-COVID-19,” discussed the challenges facing aviation as the world begins to recover from the current crisis.
ICAO wrote about the webinar, “Runway safety has long been considered as a global safety priority by ICAO. There is also an important association between the safety of runway operations and confidence. As demand returns, aviation’s focus upon the safety of operations on progressively busy or recently recommissioned runways should be renewed.”
Representatives joining Singratanakul (Gee) during the webinar were from countries that included: Ghana, India, Italy, Pakistan, Brazil, Yemen, Philippines, Australia, Paraguay, Guyana, Bolivia, Bangladesh, Israel, and Colombia.
