EMPIC was delighted to join the 17th meeting of the Regional Aviation Safety Group – Pan America (RAAC 17) as an exhibitor. The meeting was held by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) South American (SAM) office from April 10 to 15, 2023. The meeting took place in the Aerospace Museum on Santiago de Chile, Chile.
The meeting brought together representatives from civil aviation authorities, airlines, airport operators, and other industry stakeholders to discuss important issues related to aviation safety in the Pan America region.
The themes of RAAC 17 were “Harmonizing Safety in the Pan American Region” and “Sustainable Aviation”. The meeting focused on topics such as the implementation of the Global Aviation Safety Plan, the use of safety data for decision-making, and the integration of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) into the airspace.
Overall, the RAAC 17 meeting provided an important forum for stakeholders in the Pan America region to come together to share ideas, discuss challenges, and work towards enhancing aviation safety. The outcomes of the meeting will be used to inform future safety initiatives and policies in the region.
We thank ICAO for their efforts and contributions to Aviation and the possibilities to be part of these great events.
