Engineering & Maintenance
IATA considers design, certification and airworthiness issues and promotes optimal means of improving safety, reliability and productivity in aircraft engineering. We establish guidelines on engineering best practice and the standardization of technology.
The IATA Engineering & Maintenance Group (EMG) gives airlines a voice on E&M matters. It assists and supports the IATA Operations Committee
(OPC) in all matters relating to optimizing engineering and maintenance measures to improve safety, reliability and productivity.
Engineering and Maintenance Group (EMG)
The Engineering and Maintenance Group
(EMG) develops policies, standards and recommendations for consideration by the OPC in all aspects of safe and efficient aircraft engineering and maintenance activities, airworthiness and reliability issues, aircraft recovery, aircraft performance, and avionics. Additionally, it develops and promotes related IATA positions to ICAO, regulatory, industry and other relevant organizations.
Maintenance COst Task Force
IATA's Maintenance Cost Task Force
(MCTF) is a volunteer work group dedicated to supporting Technical Operations (Maintenance and Engineering) in an environment where costs are ever increasing.
Aircraft Leasing Advisory Group
IATA's Aircraft Leasing Advisory Group
(ALAG) was created under the Maintenance Cost Task Force (MCTF) to assist in all matters relating to aircraft leasing, make recommendations related thereto, and indicate how its recommendations may be implemented.
Paperless Aircraft Operations
IATA’s Paperless Aircraft Operations
(PAO) is an IATA initiative to support the airlines in identifying areas and solutions for a more efficient aircraft operation in all aspects that involve technical operations
Aircraft Recovery Task Force
The Aircraft Recovery Task Force
(ARTF) assists the EMG in addressing aircraft recovery requirements for new larger aircrafts. The EMG provides guidance to the ARTF and maintains oversight of its activities through the approval and review of its work program. The ARTF can bring forward to the EMG new subjects not on the work program that need immediate attention.
