SINGAPORE: The US Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) recently deepened their long-standing cooperation in civil aviation by signing revisions to the Bilateral Aviation Safety Agreement – Implementation Procedures for Airworthiness (BASA-IPA) on the sidelines of the Singapore Airshow.

Carl Burleson, Acting Deputy Administrator, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and Tay Tiang Guan, Deputy Director-General, Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS), sign revisions to the Bilateral Aviation Safety Agreement – Implementation Procedures for Airworthiness (BASA-IPA) on the sidelines of the Singapore Airshow.

The enhancements follow upon the launch of the US-Singapore Joint Aviation Steering Committee (JASC) in December 2017.

The JASC is co-led by the FAA Administrator and the CAAS Director-General of Civil Aviation, to manage and strategically guide technical collaboration of aviation initiatives between FAA and CAAS in the areas of international aviation safety, regional cooperation and development, air traffic management, environment, and cybersecurity.

The enhanced BASA-IPA provides for the mutual recognition of airworthiness of civil aeronautical products, and includes an expanded scope of modifications and repairs allowed beyond that of cabin interiors.
