AviAssist to cooperate on promoting aviation safety in Africa

Posted 4 October 2019 · Add Comment

Flight Safety Foundation and the AviAssist Foundation have renewed their long-standing relationship with the signing of a Memorandum of Cooperation (MOC) that will see the two organisations work more closely to promote aviation safety in Africa.

 

The MOC was signed on the sidelines of the ICAO 40th Assembly, which got under way here this week.

Under terms of the MOC, the organisations agreed to support each other’s activities broadly, and to work together to improve aviation safety in Africa through a variety of means, including sharing data and information, organising safety-focused events and executing joint studies and projects.

“We greatly value our partnership with Flight Safety Foundation to build on the successes in African safety and elevate it to the next level,” said Ron Louwerse, chairman of the AviAssist board and managing director of Rotterdam The Hague Airport for the Schiphol Group.

“The Foundation is looking forward to close cooperation with AviAssist. We are both independent and impartial nonprofits focused exclusively on aviation safety, so working together on a common goal makes a lot of sense,” said Foundation President and CEO Dr. Hassan Shahidi. “Aviation safety in Africa is making significant strides and we think we can contribute to that success story.”
