ICAO Government Safety Inspector Operations – Air Operator Certification (GSI OPS EN)

ICAO Government Safety Inspector Operations – Air Operator Certification (GSI OPS EN)

ITP/FSM/GSI OPS/005EN
ICAO Course

Goal

The Government Safety Inspector (GSI) Operations – Air Operator Certification (OPS) Course was developed as a collaborative effort between the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in order to provide operations, airworthiness, and personnel licensing aviation safety inspectors, on a worldwide basis, with uniform skills and knowledge to conduct specific safety oversight functions.
This 14-days course, designed for operations inspectors, covers the basic concepts and steps involved in certificating an air transport operator. Participants will be taught the five-phase certification process based upon ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) and Model Civil Aviation Regulations (MCARs).


Learning Objectives

After having successfully completed the GSI OPS, the trainees will be able to:

  • Evaluate perspective Operators Pre-assessment Statement forms for acceptability;
  • Identify Pre-application Meeting Objectives;
  • Conduct a cursory review of the packages and, from the review, evaluate the quality of one package and identify formal application meeting objectives for the other package;
  • Evaluate narrative and reference statements;

  • Verify submitted performance planning data for acceptability;
  • Evaluate an excerpt of a mock operator’s Aircraft Loading and Handling Manual for acceptability and identify errors;
  • Evaluate excerpts from the mock operator’s Exit Row Seating programme;
  • Evaluate the results of an inspector’s main base inspection for acceptability and determine inspector actions;
  • Evaluate the inspector’s observations of a training programme and facilities for acceptability and determine the correct inspector actions;
  • Evaluate emergency evacuation demonstration scenarios to determine if they were satisfactory and provide reasons for your decision;
