The European Aviation Security Agency has launched a new cooperation project with Ukraine.

“A new chapter in EU-Ukraine aviation relations started today with the official launch of a new cooperation project between EASA and SAAU (State Aviation Administration of Ukraine) in the area of airworthiness,” EASA said in a press release posted on its official website.

The three-year project, managed by EASA, is designed to support the implementation in Ukraine of EU airworthiness rules, and thus prepare the country’s participation to EASA’s activities.

The launch follows the signature of an Arrangement between the European Commission and the State Aviation Administration of Ukraine on the convergence of certification systems on 16 January 2017. 

Luc Tytgat, EASA’s Director for Strategy and Safety Management, said the agency supports SAAU’s efforts to transition towards EU-based requirements and standards in the area of airworthiness.

Oleksandr Bilchuk, Chairman of the State Aviation Administration of Ukraine, in turn, noted that it is planned to finalize the Convergence document by the end of the third quarter of 2017.
