New Zealand invited ANAC officials for a technical visit
The New Zealand Government as one of the sponsors of the 17th National Competition of Innovation on Federal Public Management, organised by the National School of Public Management (ENAP), awarded two officials from the National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) with a technical visit to New Zealand.
The visit occurred from 24 to 28 of June of 2013 in Wellington, Hamilton and Auckland and had as main objectives presenting the structure of the civil aviation sector in New Zealand, besides exchanging experiences with Brazil.
The ANAC officials Maurício Gusman (Technical Adviser of the Department of Airworthness) and Julio Sado (Specialist on Civil Aviation) were responsible for developing the Project “Flight Authorization and Control System- SIAVANAC”, which was one of the winners of this competition.
Besides meetings with New Zealand regulation bodies, ANAC officials had the opportunity to visit the innovative company Pacific Aerospace in Hamilton, which designs and manufactures the P-750 XSTOL aircraft to land in difficult environments.
According to Julio Sado “the opportunity given allowed us to share knowledge and experiences was pleasantly uplifted by the welcoming receptivity from the people we have met. Particularly impressed me how the New Zealander authority, focused in its mission of managing inherent risks to the operational safety and security against illicit actions in civil aviation, provides extensive instructional material available to its regulated- known as GAP, Good Aviation Practice.
Moreover, the cordiality of Kiwi people and some of country’s natural beauties could have also be seen during the brakes between visits to 10 different organizations, companies and institutions related to civil aviation. Definitely, is a country which deserves to be visited even considering the long distance from Brazil”.
