Star Navigation Systems Group Ltd has held an Aviation Accident Prevention and Airline Performance Optimisation Conference jointly with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) on Tuesday in Accra.
The purpose of the conference was to display the most recent technology in aviation safety and airline operational integrity.
Ahead of implementing the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), the required Global Aeronautical Distress and Safety System (GADSS) initiative in January 2023, airline operators have been trained in the state-of-the-art technology that enables safety in Ghana’s aviation industry.
Under this initiative, the standard for the distress tracking element of GADSS will now be applicable for newly-built aircraft.
The Acting Commissioner of the Aircraft Accident and Incident Investigation and Prevention Bureau (AIB), Mr Akwasi Agyeibi Prempeh, said the training would ensure a revolution of the aviation sector’s traditional investigation and prevention techniques to a more modern technology approach, which would ultimately alter the practice of aircraft safety from a reactive enterprise to a proactive endeavour.
