Remarkably interesting emerging issues arise in the EU/the Netherlands, for example: electric flying and unmanned aviation (popularly called drone flying).
Before continuing it is important to explain first what Emerging issues include and what it means to aviation. Emerging issues include concepts of operations, technologies, public policies, business models or ideas that might impact aviation safety in the future, for which insufficient data exists to complete typical data-driven analysis.
Meaning that the complexity of aviation system, and consequently the safety oversight system will be impacted, for which insufficient data exists to complete typical data-driven analysis.
Since we are part of the Dutch Kingdom with delegated Aviation Safety Oversight responsibilities, it is important that our Governments (the Netherlands and the Dutch Caribbean Governments) aviation authorities and the aviation community remain vigilant on emerging issues and potential risks.
These elements should be considered and prioritized by the Netherlands and the Dutch Caribbean territories when preparing their regional and national development plans and strategic plans for the air transport sector, even before cross pollination starts to take place.
In addition, political will and the strategic allocation of human and budgetary resources are essential for the sustainability of a Safety Oversight system and to ensure compliance with ICAO SARPs.
The Dutch Kingdom (the Netherlands and the Dutch Caribbean) faces the challenge of the initial investment costs of establishing an effective and sustainable civil aviation safety oversight system.
However, PMC Global is convinced that the socio-economic benefits and contributions of aviation to sustainable development will offset such costs, if properly, fairly, and jointly managed.
Over the years and still today we notice that challenges for Governments, civil aviation authorities, and the aviation community in the Dutch Kingdom have grown in number and complexity. This requires stronger and more intensive cooperation and joint commitment to aviation safety in all areas within the Kingdom.
Nevertheless, the obligation remains with the signatory State, the successful resolution of difficulties requires a solid and transparent commitment from all territorial governments belonging to the Kingdom.
Therefore, we must collectively strike a balance between the cost of enhancing and maintaining our Civil Aviation Authorities capability and the ability of the aviation industry and stakeholders to contribute to the financing of the system.
PMC Global is convinced that these Emerging issues will provide opportunities to foster innovation, use of modern technologies, and procedures. But the Dutch Kingdom (the Netherlands and the Dutch Caribbean) shall start a harmonized implementation strategy to realize significant socio-economic benefits, a safe, secure, and reliable aviation system on all territories of the Dutch kingdom.
“PMC Global and its team of experts look forward to ushering in a sustainable, resilient, strong, and united aviation and stand ready to lend a helping hand in developing and supporting strategies to
not only survive, but also thrive in the future."
