On June 16-19, the Interstate Aviation Committee jointly with the ICAO European and North Atlantic Regional Office held international seminar on airfields operation and flight safety supervision.

The seminar was held in Tashkent (Republic of Uabekistan) with the support of aviation authorities of Uzbekistan and Uzbekistan Airports, JSC, with over 50 leaders and experts in the field of airfields operation from Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Turkey and Uzbekistan. 

During the seminar the aspects of legal regulation of airports activities were discussed in the context of compliance with ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices. In addition, the problems identified during ICAO audits (USOAP CMA) and ways to solve them were discussed. During the workshop the participants of the Seminar worked on protocol issues of ICAO audits and shared their experience in resolving problems that arose during audits. 

An important part of the Seminar was focused on implementation of  a new method for assessing the strength of the airfield pavement and the impact of aircraft on it - ACR-PCR method ("aircraft classification parameter - pavement classification parameter").

This methodology was introduced by an amendment to ICAO Annex 14 “Aerodromes” in 2020  and it should be applied by states from November 2024. The purpose of the Seminar, among other things, was to assist states in implementing this standard and developing the necessary regulatory documents. Airbus employee, head of the ICAO working group on this issue, introduced the audience to the history of the development of this methodology and methods of its implementation.

Representatives of Istanbul International Airport told seminar participants about the experience of designing this largest airport and introducing advanced practices and techniques, including the ACR-PCR method.

The Seminar participants recognized its holding as successful and useful, agreed on the need to hold similar events in the future, planned a webinar on airfield operation in June 2025, and also expressed sincere gratitude to their colleagues from Uzbekistan for the excellent organization of the Seminar and traditional hospitality.
