1 AERODROME CERTIFICATION IN JAMAICA JAMAICA CIVIL AVIATION AUTHORITY

2 Aerodrome Certification –14 Aerodrome SARPS are now the main reference –incorporated by reference in regulations –16-Noise –17-Security – associated manuals with Annexes

3 Aerodrome Certification Existing Act mentions Annexes Old regulations dealt with control of aircraft access Old licensing system controlled where aircraft could have access Safety regulations require aircraft to land at licensed aerodromes (access control)

4 Aerodrome Certification In 1980 before control of aerodromes regulations there were 47 aerodromes in Jamaica Today there are 15 left There is demand to open more aerodromes Act amendment is ready New regulations have been prepared for certification

5 Aerodrome Certification EXISTING 2 international airports 4 public aerodromes 9 private aerodromes numerous helicopter alighting areas/pads DEMAND from gliders, ultra-lights, improved access to parishes, redevelop abandoned WW-2 military aerodrome for cargo

6 Glider and Ultralight aerodrome

7 Aerodrome Certification Established formal process Pre-application –discussion with JCAA –JCAA provides guidelines and forms –applicant to obtain land use approvals –if applicant does not, JCAA informs land use authorities and invites applicant to discussion –land use authorities object: no certificate issued

8 Aerodrome Certification Application Process (60 days if possible) –forms submitted, inspector assigned –site inspection, results communicated –certificate issued if standards met, deviations approved, operations manual approved –Certificate valid for one year –Interim certificate if special circumstances –Procedures for certificate amendment, suspension and surrender

9 Aerodrome Certification Contingency Plans –bomb threat –hijack –fire –crash –Emergency Plans –hurricane –earthquake –flood –strike

10 Aerodrome Certification PROGRESS –2 internationals have operations manuals –active inspection program in place –certification now a growth industry –training of aerodrome staff –MOU with ATC, Security forces, emergency health facilities, weather service, ANS

11 Demand for development hampered by terrain

12 Expan- sion options are Limited

13 But we did it anyway

14 Aerodrome Certification Act was amended New regulations were developed Guidance material was developed 3 contract inspectors had Annex 14 experience 2 local inspectors trained in security need to train local inspectors in Annex 14

15 Aerodrome Certification NEW REGULATIONS –certified airports –registered aerodromes –certified must meet Annex 14 –registered should meet Annex 14

16 Aerodrome Certification NEW REGULATIONS –international airports and those served by scheduled air operators using aircraft with over 10 seats require certification, CAA may deem it necessary at any other –all aerodromes may be registered –no air operator may use an unregistered aerodrome –where standards cannot be met an aeronautical study should establish an equivalent level of safety

17 Aerodrome Certification NEW CHALLENGES –privatization –economic regulation of aerodromes –new large aircraft –enhanced security requirements –increasing environmental awareness –urbanization and encroachment

18 Aerodrome Certification CHALLENGES –terrain, building materials, equipment –drainage –environmental –access versus control –fleet changes –limited resources –standards changes

19 Larger Aircraft

20 Urban encroachment

21 Abandoned WW2 Aerodrome to be redeveloped for Cargo and Maintenance

22 Agricultural encroachment

23 Access versus control

24 TERRAIN

26 CONTACTS JCAA , , fax , Association of Civil Aviation Authorities of the Caribbean, so far it is CARICOM states but it is not limited to CARICOM ACAAC System Coordinator , fax ,
