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
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.
