Safety Regulation of Aerodromes, a Basic Course
The course covers a review of the total aviation system in order to place the aerodrome in a context, and a review of the European safety regulatory hierarchy with respect to aerodromes.
The key processes of certification and continued oversight are covered.
The concept of Management system is dealt with, as this is a key to the Authorities as well as to the aerodrome organisation.
The major features and issues of an aerodrome, notably aerodrome data, aerodrome manual, physical characteristics and obstacle management, wildlife management, aspects of aerodrome operation and services are discussed, in order to understand the objectives of the requirements as this a prerequisite for safe operation and efficient oversight.
Winter operation, runway incursion prevention and aerodrome operations in limited visibility are covered as they present good examples of concepts, which requires cooperation and coordination between all stakeholders.
This is an ideal course for newly hired CAA Aerodrome inspectors, whether they come from another CAA department or from outside. It should also be useful for aerodrome management staff if they are in a process of converting to the EASA Requirements, or if they take on new staff in managerial positions.
The following topics will be addressed:
- Total Aviation System
- Safety Regulation in Europe
- Organisation and (Safety) Management System
- Certification, Principles and Procedures
- Non-Conformities and Exemptions/Deviations

To obtain an understanding of the basic principles of safety regulation of aerodromes in a European context
- Understanding the European regulatory system and the difference between “hard” and “soft” law.
- An appreciation of the need for coordination and cooperation when handling safety regulatory issues related to aerodromes
- An understanding of the principles of certification and oversight of major aspects of aerodrome design and operation
