November 17, 2017: The union cabinet yesterday sanctioned its approval for signing the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between India and Poland for the Promotion of Civil Aviation Cooperation for a term of five years.
The objective of the MoU is to recognise the mutual benefit of cooperation in the field of civil aviation having particular significance in establishing and improving regional air connectivity in India.
Besides, both countries would recognise mutual benefits of environmental testing or approvals, such as flight simulators monitoring, aircraft maintenance facilities, maintenance personnel, and aircrew members.
The key areas of the MoU are to promote and support the civil aviation market by reviewing legal and procedural issues, which may adversely affect cooperation between India and Poland.
Further, the MoU is said to foster collaboration in research and studies on aviation safety, conduct training programmes on aviation safely, safety oversight, airworthiness, flight operations, licensing, legislation and enforcement.
