Australia's State Aviation Safety Programme

5. Challenges, priorities and objectives

5.3 Regional priorities

The diversity of the Asia-Pacific region coupled with forecasts predicting continuing strong growth over the next decade, pose significant challenges for regional aviation safety. With these developments and challenges in mind, a number of regional priorities have been established for the Asia-Pacific region. These include the:

  • implementation at the State and regional level of the key policy principles in the Global Aviation Safety Plan including the development of SSPs
  • implementation of the Asia-Pacific Seamless Air Traffic Management Plan;
  • implementation of performance-based navigation (PBN) in terminal airspace;
  • increased use of air traffic flow management and Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM);
  • use of data link such as Automatic Dependent Surveillance—Contract (ADS-C) and Controller Pilot Data Link Communications (CPDLC); and
  • data exchange with neighbouring air navigation service providers.

Australia continues to engage actively in the development of regional aviation safety priorities and policies through forums such as the:

  • Regional Aviation Safety Group Asia and Pacific Regions (RASG-APAC);
  • Asia Pacific Regional Aviation Safety Team (APRAST); and
  • Director General of Civil Aviation Asia and Pacific Region (DGCA) conferences.
