ASSIGNMENT 3 AVM4700 INT. AVIATION OPS. CAMPBELL 2 Assignment 3 AVM4700 Int. Aviation Ops. Question 1: What is the International Air Transport Association (IATA)? How did it come to exist? What is its role in today’s aviation landscape? Answer: IATA is an organization which supports aviation with global standards for airline safety, security, efficiency, and sustainability. IATA consists of 290 airlines which represent 117 countries which have joined together to create a trade organization. IATA was formed in Havana, Cuba in April 1945. It was created as a successor to the International Air Traffic Association which was originally formed in 1919. Today IATA’s role is to promote safety among regular air traffic, to foster air commerce, to study and minimize foreseeable problems with the airline industry, to provide a means of collaboration between air transport companies and aid agencies and to cooperate with international air transport organizations. Question 2: What is an air operator certificate (AOC)? What must be evaluated by a civil aviation authority (CAA) before one is issued? In your own words, describe how an AOC is associated with international aviation safety. Answer: An air operator certificate (AOC) is required for organizations that wish to operate a commercial air operation. In other words, you can think of it as a license to operate that aircraft as a commercial air operator. In order for an airliner to acquire an AOC it must first demonstrate to the local Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) or National Aviation Authority (NAA), that it is capable to handle safe operations for its organization, training, flight operations, ground handling and maintenance sectors. After the evaluation, if the company if found competent then they may be issued the AOC. In my opinion, the AOC is a way to establish guidelines for the safety of the

When an ordinary person gets onto an aircraft for the purpose of a cross-country flight on an airliner or simply a sightseeing tour on a smaller aircraft, they do not have the necessary knowledge to check that company’s maintenance records or to verify the airworthiness of that aircraft. The AOC passes that responsibility to the government and allows a way for them to regulate safety and operation of commercial aircraft, in order to create a safe environment for the public. Question 3: Why do you think personnel licensing was such an important issue that it became the first annex to the Chicago Convention? Explain. Answer: Personnel licensing is required for pilots, air traffic controllers, and maintenance engineers. This ensures a certain level of competency of skills before we allow these individuals to exercise their professional duties. This is an extremely important issue when it comes to the

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
