Web Manuals - Interview with Joel Hencks, Managing Director AeroEx - March 29, 2019
Put simply, regulations are what hold the world of aviation together; without them, this industry would be chaos. But what is on the table for 2019 and beyond when it comes to European rules and regulations? Web Manuals spoke to Joel Hencks, managing director of AeroEx GmbH, to shed some light on the impact of regulations in the European market.
(Not so) Great Expectations
Aviation regulations are constantly developing and, in Europe at least, we have seen several new iterations published in recent years that will require implementation this year. The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) is directly responsible for the development and standardization of aviation safety regulations in Europe and it is a requirement for aviation businesses in its member states to ensure they are up to speed.
As far as European operators are concerned, there will be no big changes this year in terms of new regulations; instead, there will be a strong focus on implementation and ensuring aviation businesses are compliant, ahead of the relevant timeframes. For example, a new standard related to the best practices for the evaluation and use of electronic flight bags must be implemented by relevant parties within the next six months, so it is going to be very interesting to see how this pans out. We can also expect to see amendments made to existing regulations, in order for them to remain current and relevant to the industry.
