AERODROMES AND NAVIGATION AIDS (AGA)
ACSA's AGA Department was created in 2005 in order to complement the technical areas the agency had been working with in the Central American region. One of the main tasks assigned to this department was to support the States during ICAO USOAP audits.
Based on the strategic objective of contributing to the aviation development of the region, ACSA's AGA Department was in charge of developing regulations and joint implementation procedures for aerodrome design and certification. These documents include:
In addition, another task the AGA department carries out in the Central American region is the coordination and secretariat of the Central American AGA Group of Experts. This aerodrome group of experts is formed by individuals of the different civil aviation authorities and its main goal is to develop tools necessary to comply with the safety requirements set in the Chicago Convention.
Two short-term goals this group has are to support the Central American States in the certification of aerodromes and to promote the compliance with the international standards set by ICAO and other civil aviation related organizations.
ACSA's AGA Department is committed to the organization's strategic objectives and it is continuously searching for strategies to contribute to the aviation development and to enhance safety in the Central American region.
