Civil Aviation Authorities, Aircraft Accident Investigators
Dr. André de Kock
André started his aviation career in 1975 as an apprentice and later as an aircraft maintenance engineer with South African Airways. From 1980 he lectured Aircraft Maintenance Engineering and Mechanical Engineering in Kempton Park Technical College. In 1996, he joined the South African Civil Aviation Authority, investigating aircraft accidents and serious incidents. In the ten years with the SACAA, he was involved in more than a hundred investigations, mainly in the general aviation sector, but also several investigations involving large commercial transport aeroplanes.
Started with the ICAO Accident Investigation and Prevention Section in May 2007 as a technical officer. Among other tasks, André serves as the Secretary of the Accident Investigation Panel and the Flight Recorder Specific Working Group.
In the engineering field of study, he obtained a National Diploma for Technicians; and in the education field of study a Doctorate in Curriculum Studies with a thesis relating to Outcomes Based Curriculums for Aircraft Maintenance Students at Technical Colleges.
He is a certified private pilot, both in South Africa and in the United States.
Rémi Jouty was nominated as Director of the French Civil Aviation Accident Investigation Authority, BEA, on 1 January 2014.
Rémi Jouty began his career in aeronautical research for the French Ministry of Defence where, from 1987 to 1995, he managed programmes on aerodynamic and flight dynamics.
From 1995 to 2006, he dedicated his career to aviation safety at the Direction Générale de l'Aviation Civile (DGAC). He oversaw all activities related to certification and continuing airworthiness of French-designed or registered public transport aircraft. In a European context, he ran the international teams responsible for the A330 and A340, followed by the definition of the certification conditions for the A380.
He organised the gradual transfer of type certification activities for transport aeroplanes and helicopters to the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and implemented the new European regulation on aircraft maintenance, the issuing and continuation of individual airworthiness.
From 2006 to 2008, he took over as head of the Investigation Department at the BEA, and was then asked in January 2009 to assist the Director of the DSAC (Direction de la Sécurité de l'Aviation Civile), the DGAC's oversight authority with 1,300 staff. While there , he oversaw the process of aviation safety risks evaluation and reduction work.
Married, with two children, Rémi Jouty is a graduate of the Ecole Polytechnique and of the Ecole Nationale de l'Aéronautique et de l'Espace (ENSAE).
Rémi Jouty enjoys gliding and has performed more than 1,000 flying hours on twin-engine aeroplanes, in IFR conditions.
