ANAC and ALTA advance in unprecedented partnership for safety and efficiency in aviation

During the ALTA Pan American Aviation Safety & Operations Summit, held in Santiago, Chile, Brazil’s Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) and the Latin American and Caribbean Air Transport Association (ALTA) signed, on June 14, the Technical cooperation that represents the advance of the unprecedented partnership for the promotion of flight safety and efficiency. The main objective of the agreement is the exchange of technical knowledge, experiences, and information between civil servants and collaborators of ANAC, ALTA, and its associates, aiming to subsidize the construction of a Supplementary Instruction that establishes rules applicable to the procedures of Required Navigation Performance Authorization Required (RNP AR) in take-off operations, in addition to the qualification of the ANAC team to assess compliance with these criteria by air operators. The Technical Cooperation Agreement is the result of a Memorandum of Understanding signed between ANAC and ALTA in September 2022. The first resulting action is a pilot exchange project between ANAC’s technical staff and the industry to regulate the authorization of take-off procedures with the reduced roof, known as Required Navigation Performance Authorization Required Departure (RNP AR DP). This initiative is particularly relevant, as it aims to deal with the negative impacts that adverse weather conditions have on air operations, preventing aircraft from taking off. In other words, it will especially benefit users of the aviation system. The expectation is that this partnership will bring significant benefits to both airlines and passengers, and that it will be a leading case for other countries. – https://www.gov.br/anac/pt-br/noticias/2023/anac-e-alta-avancam-em-parceria-inedita-para-a-seguranca-e-eficiencia-na-aviacao
