ICAO head in RP to assess aviation industry

The president of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO)
arrived yesterday afternoon from Montreal, Canada on the invitation of
the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) to assess the
country’s aviation industry.

Roberto Kobe Gonzalez was welcomed at the Ninoy Aquino International
Airport by CAAP chief Alfonso Cusi and ICAO coordinator Peter Weiss.

Cusi said Gonzalez would be in the country until Sunday to inspect the
Manila Control Tower, the Area Control Center radar room and
thereafter, would be given a briefing by top CAAP officials.

Those scheduled to speak in behalf of the CAAP are the heads of the
Airport Development and Management System, Air Navigation Service, Air
Traffic Service and Flight Standard Inspectorate Service.

“This is probably the time that we would ask Gonzalez for a definite
timeline on his assessment of the CAAP in regards to the significant
safety concern (SSC) that they have aired,” Cusi said
