WFP taking aviation safety message to North Africa

Posted 8 April 2013 · Add Comment

The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) aviation arm operates in some of the most unforgiving and hostile areas in the world playing a major role in the recovery process of the afflicted areas.

The WFP’s aviation team – based in Sharjah - enforce strict aviation safety standards by requesting the contracted air operators to comply with the international aviation standards as well as UN WFP particular requirements in order to reduce the risk levels and to avoid adding an aviation catastrophe grief.

Having adopted a methodology for safe skies the WFP has branched out to share knowledge and experience by promoting flight safety worldwide, and conducting workshops, seminars, trainings and conferences.

Later this year WFP will host the 5th Global Humanitarian Aviation Conference & Exhibition which will be held in Four Seasons Hotel Marrakesh-Morocco, 9-11 October 2013, where aviation innovators, decision makers and  managers meet to discuss a broad spectrum of numerous imperative aviation concerns.

This conference has been endorsed, recognised and supported by many international and national organizations such as ICAO, FAA, EASA, FSF, IFALPA, UAE-GCAA, and many National CAAs from numerous countries due to its significant affirmative impact in improving the aviation safety standards, and risk mitigation strategies worldwide.

WFP will be opening its doors at the conference to any operator with safety at the heart of their operation. The organisation is also looking for support through sponsorship or donation.
