Electric Flying in the Dutch Caribbean "A strategic approach required"

In 2020, the Netherlands has set ambitions for sustainable aviation in order to reduce CO2 emissions and operate emission-free on the ground and in the air. This route is considered one of the routes towards a more sustainable air transport.

A fantastic project that started in the Netherlands and now also in the Caribbean part of the Dutch kingdom. An emerging aviation sector supported by an all-green approach that will have a high socio-economic impact for the Caribbean part of the Kingdom and down the road for the entire Caribbean.

But achieving sustainable success requires a strategic approach to capacity-building and training to ensure safety in line with the ICAO Global and Regional Safety Plans, ICAO SAPSs and a Now Country Left Behind Approach, based on the Sustainable Strategic Goals (SDGs) of the UN.

Considered as an emerging issue, this new development encompasses concepts of operations, technologies, government policies, business models or ideas that may affect safety in the future, for which there is insufficient data to complete typical data-driven analytics. There will be more pressure on existing aviation infrastructure and the complexity of the aviation system will increase.

In addition, there are risks that cannot be managed in their entirety and/or optimally at the level of an individual aviation organization, which makes a joint approach between aviation organizations, aviation training organizations, aviation authorities, the private community, and governments necessary.

Meanwhile, it is essential to establish a collaborative platform with the aim of encouraging and promoting a diversified funding and financing approach. A joint effort is necessary between of all countries in the Dutch Kingdom with support of policy makers, aviation authorities, development partners, the private sector and investment and financial institutions, to the development of a high-quality aviation infrastructure.

By increasing the role of the private sector, as well as the effective use of domestic resources, and international development finance it is possible to develop and modernize a high-quality aviation infrastructure/system

With this article, PMC Global Aviation aims to:

  1. Promote a concerted effort to combat stagnation, inappropriate and/or contradictory decision-making and non-compliance,

  2. Achieve continued success in conducting civil aviation activities in accordance with ICAO provisions, plans, programs and standards and recommended practices (SARPs),

  3. Trigger development of a capacity-building and training strategy to establish an optimal structure and achieve sustainably qualified and competent aviation professionals, a precondition for achieving sustainable performance in the field of aviation safety.

PMC Global Aviation looking forward to ushering in sustainable, resilient, a strong and an united aviation, and stands ready to develop and support strategies to not only survive but sustainably

thrive in the future.
