The Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAA) will co-operate with the US Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) to conduct an assessment of CAA’s capacity to oversee safety in accordance with International Civil Aviation Organisation standards in May.


Aviation authority prepares for US FAA safety assessment


National carrier Vietnam Airlines last November asked the Ministry of Transport to allow it to open a direct route to the US by the end of 2018. 

However, a prerequisite for the United States to consider approval is that the country’s aviation authority has reached CAT 1 rating. 

The move is a preparation step for the FAA’s International Aviation Safety Assessment Programme, which is an attempt to appreciate the local aviation authority’s ability to adhere to standards and recommended practices for aircraft operations and maintenance.

The CAA last year set up a project on strengthening supervision capacity of aviation safety with the financial aid of US$0.56 million, funded by the US Trade and Development Agency.

The project, which is aimed at helping Viet Nam reach FAA’s Category 1 rating (CAT 1), focused on perfecting the CAA’s action plan on supporting vocational training on supervision and updating related regulations and legal documents.

If the local aviation authority is qualified for CAT 1, Vietnamese air carriers will be able to transport goods and passengers directly between Viet Nam and the United States.

Viet Nam currently has no direct route to the United States. National carrier Vietnam Airlines last November asked the Ministry of Transport to allow it to open a direct route to the US by the end of 2018. 

However, a prerequisite for the United States to consider approval is that the country’s aviation authority has reached CAT 1 rating.

According to reports, some 689,000 passengers traveled between Viet Nam and the US in 2016, marking an average growth rate of 8.4 per cent per year in the 2010-16 period.

Emissions of key greenhouse far higher than thought: study

Global emissions of the potent greenhouse gas methane may be double current estimates, posing an added challenge in the fight against climate change, researchers said Wednesday. The new study is based on a database 100 times larger than previous ones, and uses a methodology that avoids debatable assumptions underlying earlier models. Within the figure, the methane leaked during the production and use of natural gas, oil and coal is 20 to 60 percent higher than previously thought, they reported… chat_bubble_outline Read More...
