Bulletin #3: Safely Navigating the Industry Restart

The COVID-19 pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on the aviation industry and its stakeholders. In order to help facilitate the industry restart in these challenging times,  the Civil Air Navigation Services Organization (CANSO), International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers’ Association (IFATCA), International Federation of Air Line Pilots’ Associations (IFALPA) and International Air Transport Association (IATA) recently held a webinar on the topic of Pilot & ATCO Interface during Restart. Following the webinar, IATA has drafted a bulletin highlighting the main points covered during the webinar.

IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: Safety Risk Assessments (SRAs) allow for the identification of hazards, risks and control measures associated with a given event or change. The example provided in this bulletin is for information only and is NOT a replacement for a proper SRA taking into account the local environment for which it will be used.

IFATCA will not be responsible for how the assessment is carried out, and is not responsible for the use of the example provided. It should be noted that nothing within the example provided overrides any requirements needed to comply with national regulation and approved procedures.

The assessment is a continuous, live process and must be monitored and audited, reviewed and revised with any change occurring. Any change could lead to new risks and hazards needing to be considered and no liability rests with IFATCA in this respect. The assessment should be programmed for review at appropriate intervals.

Webinar #2: Safely Navigating the Industry Restart

COVID-19 had an impact on training and licensing of ATCOs and dispatchers due to the lockdown imposed in many States, the inaccessibility to training facilities, the changing priorities in medical checks and the impact of physical distancing requirements on OJT. To ensure continuity of operations, many regulators approved the extension of licenses and alleviated some requirements for recurrent and refresher training. 

This webinar will discuss the impact of extension of licenses and recurrent training and what can be done to ensure continued competency with all the new requirements, e.g. physical distancing. The guest speakers will also share best practices and discuss the alternatives to training facilities and in-class room training.

IFATCA EU 373/2017 Regulation Workshop

On the initiative of our Lithuanian and Latvian air traffic controllers’ associations, IFATCA held a workshop on the implementation of EU regulation 373/2017 at Oro Navigacija in Vilnius, Lithuania from the 6-7th of January.

The workshop was a mix of presentations and group work with participants from Poland, Rumania, Ireland, Estonia, Latvia, Denmark, Lithuania and Eurocontrol. Fatigue, rostering, stress, CISM and the testing of psychoactive substance were among the topics discussed.

For more details on the regulation and its impact, IFATCA published a checklist for Member Associations to verify their ANSP/Country’s compliance with European Regulation 2017/373 on stress, fatigue and psychoactive substances. While obviously most relevant to European associations, it may be of use to others to crosscheck how they are doing in respect to this regulation.
