We have trained
someone you know...
We have told you in the past about the escalation of ramp inspections in Mexico over the past year. There have been several interesting developments over the past few months that have made this topic go from a nuisance to a full-blown operational concern going forward.
The following has been published by Manny Aviation, an established ground handler in Mexico.
“Civil Aviation Authority in Mexico (fka DGAC) has changed its name to AFAC (Civil Aviation Federal Agency) as of October 16th. As part of its change, part of broader overhaul authorities are undergoing, some departments within the agency have changed the way they operate and some procedures are being modified.
Unfortunately, it is yet too soon to brief you accurately on specific changes. Moreover, some changes might be overturned in the end due to its lack of practical application. What we can share with you so far is the following:
Our company provides International Procedures training to professional pilots within the business aviation community. This training focuses on the procedures and requirements to facilitate operations of an aircraft to, from or within any airspace in the world.
We employ a Curriculum Advisory Board for all of our International Procedures Pilot training courses allowing us to refine your training in-part based on experiences gained by our clients. These clients span the entire global spectrum from OEMs (aircraft and avionic manufacturers), Fortune 100 corporate flight departments, part 135 commercial operators, military, to the very people that make the rules under which you operate. Our involvement with industry leaders and governing bodies in identifying changes and areas of concern and then brilliantly breaking complex regulations down to the real intended application means all of our clients benefit from a combined experience base. Our clients have confidence that no stone will be left unturned. Hence our motto: "Because safety is in the details™."
With a rapidly changing international environment, clients need "Best Practice" wisdom. Clients need to be confident that the information received in training is the very latest and most accurate available. Our promise to you is that we will do just that. We also work with our clients on an ongoing basis outside of the classroom, providing consulting services and answering question as the need arises after the training event.
