ICAO wants to close ‘gaps’ in air safety regulations

Soumis
 
MONTREAL — The International Civil Aviation Organization says it will take immediate and decisive action to close “gaps” in air safety regulations and practices following the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 this month. The Montreal-based UN body, which governs civil aviation across the globe, called a meeting of top officials from four international organizations on Tuesday morning to discuss ways to “mitigate potential risks” to commercial airliners travelling over conflict zones.

For ICAO to take immediate and decisive action would be a first. Why do I think they'll still be talking about it by this time next year.

I always support the ICAO which gives structure and a solid basis for aviation recommendations. Some Civil Aviation Authorities by law, government acts and bylaws have strict authority to directly implement and enforce the recommendations. Unfortunately the US with its disjointed different state legal systems can only have a FAA recommendations which can not be universally applied.

Therefore individual countries with their own legal systems same as the differential US states carry their own aviation legal systems.

Therefore in war-torn ruined places run by nutters and idiots, just as all the world talk and condemnation meaning zero, so does an ICAO committee "closing the loopholes" mean a big fluffy nothing.

Sorry Martin but the FAA has FULL regulatory over almost all aspects of commercial aviation (and much private aviation too). States rights are superseded (the preemption doctrine) by the Federal authority in almost all aspects of airport, air traffic, aviation safety (planes, pilots, airlines, mechanics)and more recently commercial space travel.

In the United States and over carriers flying in her. He is talking primarily about overseas, where contrary to public opinion, there are still countries making what power grab they can, regardless of ICAO and the EU. They are just now getting halfway close to a centralized Air Routing rather than individual countries.

He started by making the assertion the "the US with its disjointed different state legal systems can only have a FAA recommendations", which is totally false. Similarly, the planned ICAO regulations are NOT to dictate to "war-torn" regions on how THEY should behave but how airline members of the ICAO should behave with respect TO those war-torn regions. A "loop-hole" that presumably would be closed is the approval of flight-paths over high-risk airspaces like part of the Ukraine that was permitted for MH17 even though many airlines were already avoiding the airspace. So, the regulation would NOT be useless as Martin suggests, except perhaps that the ICAO operates too slowly, even in a rush.

I missed that US part. You are entirely correct. The regulation is a good idea and won't be useless, BUT the thing here is how much time will it take. ICAO is about as slow as smoke off of doo doo.
