Asia Pacific Aviation Safety Seminar, 7–8 September 2016, Tokyo, Japan


The Association of Asia Pacific Airlines (AAPA) is holding the Asia Pacific Aviation Safety Seminar (APASS) on 7-8 September 2016 in Tokyo.  The seminar, hosted by All Nippon Airways, is organised by the AAPA Flight Operations & Safety Working Group.

This seminar is designed to create a common meeting place for all airlines from the Asia Pacific region, airports, aircraft manufacturers, regulators, insurers, ground handlers, MROs, service providers and suppliers to discuss and to be updated on the latest developments in aviation safety.

The seminar topics includes:

Flight Safety

The management of safety risks and costs in commercial aviation necessitate a rational process for decision-making, weighing the probability and severity of any adverse consequences. The seminar will look into various flight safety risks as well as tools available in the market that is deemed useful in such decision-making. This include runway safety, air traffic control (ATC)/airport, human factors, evidence based training, key performance indicators (KPIs)/safety targets, RPAS/UAV/Drone and crew mental health


Cabin Safety

Establishing and adhering to adequate standard operating procedures and cabin-crew decision-making processes are critical in ensuring a safe flight in all phases. The seminar looks to explore the following key issues: turbulence management, medical response, managing unruly passenger, lithium battery, cabin line operations safety audit (LOSA), incident reporting, criminal activity and crew training.



Turboprop Safety

Turboprop aircraft operations in the region is growing fast and because of the different operating environments and infrastructure challenges of turboprop aircraft, it requires separate focus and attention to prioritise relevant safety initiatives. The seminar will look to explore industry best strategies in addressing turboprop safety on the following key issues: flight data monitoring, Performance-Based Navigation (PBN), upset prevention/recovery training, Safety Management System (SMS) and wind shear detection


Why attend?

  •          Excellent networking opportunities for all safety stakeholders to exchange ideas on the important fundamentals and applications of aviation safety best practices, in-service experience and lessons-learned with like-minded aviation safety experts

16th COSCAP-NA Steering Committee Meeting Pyongyang, DPR Korea


The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) hosted an ICAO international meeting for the first time in Pyongyang from 15 to 17 June 2016.  The ICAO member State hosted the 16th annual Steering Committee Meeting of the Cooperative Development of Operational Safety and Continuing Airworthiness Programme for North Asia (COSCAP-NA). 

COSCAP-NA is an ICAO regional Technical Cooperation project funded by the member States and voluntary financial and in-kind contributions from Canada, France, United States, Airbus, Boeing, and EASA.  The COSCAP-NA office is hosted by China in Beijing, together with the Regional Sub-Office and Asia Pacific Flight Procedures Programme, co-locating in the same city the inter-related ICAO regional programmes.

The COSCAP-NA provides its member States a mechanism for the provision of technical assistance by pooling and sharing resources and expertise in aviation safety, as well as consolidating and coordinating the voluntary contributions received from ICAO’s safety partners.  COSCAP-NA supports States in implementing the ICAO Global Aviation Safety Plan (GASP) objectives and Regional Aviation Safety Group – Asia Pacific (RASG-AP) regional safety targets.  The goal is the continued improvement of safety among the member States which already enjoy a good average effective implementation of ICAO SARPs as measured by the ICAO USOAP.

DPKR hosting this ICAO meeting marks its contribution to the No Country Left Behind initiative and at the same time allows the State to showcase its aviation system and progress in implementing aviation safety improvements for the benefit of other States and the air transport industry at large.
