The COSCAP for the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) has been an important source of technical assistance to twelve countries in the region for the past twelve years. The project, supported by Airbus and Boeing, focuses on aviation safety regulations developed in English and Russian. Numerous training activities in the areas of flight safety and airworthiness delivered by specialists from Airbus, Boeing, FAA, Russian Federation and Interstate Aviation Committee (IAC) have benefitted about 7000 civil aviation specialists from the States in the region.

 

Within the framework of the project CAST-CIS and IHST-CIS, teams of specialists have been established to cooperate with similar teams from North America and Europe to ensure a coherent and coordinated approach in resolving flight safety shortcomings in the region.
