UAE Issues First Airworthiness Directive
November 08, 2011
On Sept. 27, the General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) released its first Airworthiness Directive (AD).
The AD, UAE-2011-001, applies to Lear Jet 60 model aircraft and requires an inspection for cross connected wires on the forward and aft fire extinguisher container squibs. The AD is the result of a UAE-based operator informing the GCAA of the anomaly.
The 15-year-old agency has been actively encouraging the growth and development of the Emirates’ aerospace market and now joins a handful of national aviation authorities that draft ADs. The presence of a strong domestic regulatory authority will strengthen the Emirati push to enhance its standing as a major competitor in civil aviation maintenance. The recently released GCAA Strategic Plan, 2011-213 outlines growth and opportunities in the nation and across the greater Gulf region.
