South Sudan establishes independent Civil Aviation Authority

By Dr. Wolfgang H. Thome, eTN Uganda | Feb 28, 2013

(eTN) - South Sudan’s President Salva Kiir issued a decree earlier this week, establishing the country’s Civil Aviation Authority while at the same time appointing General Agasio Akol as the first Chairman of the Board, overseeing the new aviation body alongside 6 other members.

SSCAA will now seek formal recognition with global body ICAO, the Montreal-based International Civil Aviation Organization, and along that way have to accept, and then implement, ICAO’s regulatory requirements governing civil aviation around the world.

SSCAA, when fully established, is expected to carry out all licensing functions for air transport, both domestic but also internationally, as governed by Bilateral Air Service Agreements, aka BASAs, which will issue Air Operator Certification for airlines registered in the South Sudan and carry out oversight and safety functions in line with established practice elsewhere in the world.
