Civil aviation authorities from Brazil and Singapore strengthen ties of cooperation and training

Brazil’s Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) informs that, at the end of April, it carried out an official visit to the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS). Represented by its director, Luiz Ricardo Nascimento, ANAC participated in the meeting that aimed to explore possibilities for closer cooperation and training opportunities between the two civil aviation authorities. During the visit, Luiz Ricardo met with the interim director general of CAAS, Ng Tee Chiou, to discuss the ongoing negotiation of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the two agencies, which covered aspects of aeronautical product certification for enable acceptance of ANAC approvals by CAAS, after validation of Embraer aircraft in Singapore. There was also discussion on possibilities for cooperation related to cyber security, landside facilitation (biometric boarding and automated baggage handling), airside facilitation (yard management and aircraft volume processing), and the design and operation of compatible infrastructures for new electric and hybrid-electric Vertical Takeoff and Landing aircraft (eVTOL) technologies. In the end, they addressed the various opportunities for capacity building and training between the two agencies, using ANAC’s experience and institutional structure. – https://aeroin.net/autoridades-de-aviacao-civil-do-brasil-e-de-singapura-estreitam-lacos-de-cooperacao-e-capacitacao/
