International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) of the United Nations is expected to conduct an audit of India’s aviation safety around the end of 2021. This time around, the focus is expected to be on areas such as aircraft airworthiness, aircraft operations, personal training, licencing etc.
The last time ICAO conducted this audit for India was in 2017-2018, where one of the main concerns was the licensing of air traffic controllers by Airport Authority of India. As this role now has been taken over by the DGCA, government officials expect an improvement in the ratings.
Also, US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is also expected to conduct an audit of India’s aviation safety system in 2021.
