The Regional Aviation Safety Group – Pan America (RASG-PA) was established in November 2008 to use the framework provided by the ICAO Global Aviation Safety Plan (GASP) and the Global Aviation Safety Roadmap (GASR) to support the establishment and operation of a performance based aviation safety system in the Pan American Region.
RASG-PA supports implementation of the ICAO GASP and complies with ICAO Council approval of Regional Aviation Safety Groups (RASGs) with the objective to address global aviation safety matters from a regional perspective. Further, the RASG-PA supports the NACC and SAM Regions in establishing objectives, priorities, indicators and the setting of measurable targets to address safety-related deficiencies in each region while ensuring consistency of action and coordination of efforts.
RASG-PA serves as regional cooperative for integrating global, regional, national, and industry efforts in continuing to enhance aviation safety in the Region. RASG-PA eliminates duplication of effort through the establishment of cooperative regional safety initiatives and activities. This coordinated approach significantly reduces both financial and human resource burdens on States and allows for the delivery of measurable safety improvements.
The RASG-PA vision is to remain ahead of any risks to commercial aviation, and to collaborate towards achieving the highest level of safety in the Pan American Region.
The RASG-PA mission is to reduce fatality risk in commercial aviation by ensuring prioritization, coordination and implementation of data-driven safety enhancement initiatives in the Pan American Region through the active involvement of all civil aviation stakeholders.
