Madrid, 5 July 2022 (AESA)

The State Aviation Safety Agency (AESA) has approved the second edition of the Operational Safety Action Plan (PASO) 2021-2025, which aims to achieve the maximum development of the State Operational Safety Programme (PESO) for Civil Aviation, with the aim of strengthening aviation safety by adopting a new preventive approach in this area.

The PASO, which has been approved by Resolution of the Director of EASA, Montserrat Domènech, has been prepared by the Agency in collaboration with the suppliers and the other public bodies involved, in order to achieve the operational safety objectives set out in the PESO.

The plan describes the activities aimed at improving operational safety in those areas identified as priorities, both of the public bodies responsible for oversight and control of safety, of the providers of aeronautical services and products and of the other public bodies that are part of the PESO.

The Operational Safety Program provides an integrated vision of the entire Spanish civil aviation sector, allows the identification and assessment of risks related to operational safety, as well as taking decisions to keep the risks under control. In addition, it networks all actors in the civil aviation system, taking advantage of synergies between them. The Action Plan includes the specific tasks to be developed, its targets and indicators.

The PASO is consistent with the European Aviation Safety Plan (EPAS) 2022-2026, as required by Regulation (EU) 2018/1139 of 4 July 2018 on common rules in the field of civil aviation and establishing a European Union Aviation Safety Agency. In addition, both the Plan and the Programme are in conformity with Annex 19 to the Convention on International Civil Aviation.
