The Jamaica Civil Aviation Authority (JCAA), through its Flight Safety Department, will be hosting a symposium on Wednesday, December 5, 2018, at the Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay, beginning at 8:30 a.m.
It will target foreign operators, contracted ground handlers and maintenance providers in an effort to advise them of the surveillance and certification responsibilities of the JCAA.
“The symposium will be an outreach to all stakeholders where we will share the perspective of the JCAA, our roles and responsibilities, so that our main priority of safety and security can be maintained at the highest level,” Deputy Director General, Regulatory Affairs, Rohan Campbell, told JIS News.
Meanwhile, Manager, Airworthiness Oversight at the JCAA, Gary Carr, informed that the regulatory requirements for foreign operators are among the topics to be discussed as well as breaches of these requirements, which have been observed in the past by the JCAA.
Mr. Campbell noted that the event should positively impact stakeholders’ operations, so they can operate successfully and grow.
The JCAA said that through the symposium it hopes to improve its relationship with stakeholders by creating awareness of the JCAA’s role in its surveillance of foreign operators, which should result in seamless inspections at aerodromes and reduce the possibility of delays and service interruptions.
