The new IATA-ICAO-IFALPA Fatigue Risk Management (FRMS) Implementation Guide for Operators is now available as a free download.
Fatigue Risk Management Systems Workshops
Early September, ICAO hosted both a Fatigue Risk Management (FRMS) Symposium and an FRMS Forum meeting in Montreal. IATA’s SVP, Safety, Operations & Infrastructure, together with ICAO Air Navigation Bureau Director, IFALPA's President set the tone of the event on the opening day, discussing the collaborative approach in doing business as demonstrated with the creation of the FRMS Implementation Guide for Operators. This message was a theme throughout the four day event.
IATA Training and Qualification Initiative moves to full implementation - First workshop planned in London
Launched in 2007 to improve operational safety through the development of more effective selection and training for pilots and maintenance personnel, the IATA Training and Qualification Initiative (ITQI) is now successfully concluding its development phase to move to full implementation in 2012.
Join the ITQI conference
A joint two-day IATA/Royal Aeronautical Society Conference on ITQI will take place in London on 15-16 February 2012.
The conference will present an in-depth overview on ITQI’s six core elements: Multi-crew Pilot License, Evidence Based Training, Instructor Qualification, Flight Simulation Training Devices, Pilot Aptitude Testing and Engineering & Maintenance.
The focus will be on harmonization of training requirements and collaboration with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the International Federation of Airline Pilots' Associations (IFALPA) and the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS).
The IATA Fuel Efficiency Campaign enjoys successes in Beijing, Singapore and Brussels
As part of the enhancement of the IATA Fuel Efficiency Campaign, the Fuel Implementation Regional Workshops were launched in 2011 to support airlines to implement and improve their fuel conservation programs.
Recently, workshops were run in Singapore, Beijing and Brussels gathering over 80 delegates from 45 airlines. The Beijing workshop saw for the first time the attendance of Air Koryo and Mongolian Airlines.
During these workshops the IATA experts shared with the airlines the industry best practices and effective guidance about how to plan, implement and monitor an effective fuel conservation program. This is based on the IATA Green Team experience with 108 airlines assessed since 2005.
Several IATA members presented their fuel programs, triggering the debate.
Further information on how IATA supports the industry’s fuel efficiency improvement and CO2 emission reduction can be obtained by contacting the IATA Green Team at email@example.com or by joining the Green Team online community.
The following is an image of the Beijing workshop participants with the IATA Green Team and some members of the IATA Beijing office.
