7. AVIATION SAFETY
 

The Northern Regional Aviation Safety (RAS) set up of the Directorate of Aviation Safety (Central Headquarters) is headed by a Deputy General Manager. This is established to investigate incidents and suggest remedial measures for obviating its recurrence. But the main area of thrust is the proactive programme by the Aviation Safety set up aimed to detect the weak areas in the system and organisation. The detection of problem areas and potential hazards is achieved by carrying out internal safety audit of Airport operational areas, Aerodrome Ground Aids, Air Traffic Control System, Communication, Surveillance, Navigational and landing Aids, Rescue and Fire services, Electrical installations/equipment/facilities, Security equipment, Terminal buildings and associated facilities/Equipment.

 

The Safety Audit team consisting of experts measures the facility, system and procedures at the Airports against the Standard And Recommended Practices (SARPS) promulgated by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) through Annexes and Documents.

 

The Safety Audit report identifying deficiencies, weakness and problem areas are forwarded to the concerned directorates for implementing corrective measures. The concerned offices are asked to forward the "Action Taken Report" to RAS wing for monitoring purposes. Thus these Safety audit reports identifying weaknesses and problem areas help the organisation to implement corrective measures and achieve the desired organisational goal of zero accident / incident.
Regional Aviation Safety is also acts as a Nodal Officer for assisting the feild station for the aerodrome licensing. In Delhi region, there are 13 operational airports, out of these 12 airports are DGCA approved aerodrome license. These are Amritsar, Dehradun, Gaggal, Jaipur, Khajuraho, Kullu-Manali, Lucknow, Pantnagar, Shimla, Udaipur, Varanasi, Ludhiana.
The Aviation Safety is also assisting for conducting the Safety Assessments for the newly constructed/installation facilities to the feild stations.
The Northern Regional Aviation Safety wing audited Seven Airports in the year 2011.
