The Air Navigation Bureau has the responsibility of creating and developing technical studies for the Air Navigation Commissions, and also for developing recommendations that are meant to be used by the air navigation board. These recommendations, grouped under the heading Standards and Recommended Practices or SARPs are related to the efficiency, safety and the regularity of the International Aviation Council. The Air Transport Bureau, on the other hand, is charged with, by the Air Transport, Unlawful Interference and Joint Support Committees, for providing expert assistance for the Assembly, Council, Air Transport Committee or the ATC, the Committee on Unlawful Interference or the UIC, the Committee on Joint Support of Air Navigation Services or the JSC, and the specialized conference, divisional, panel and working group meetings that may be convened in the air transport field. The Legal Bureau would provide legal assistance and aid to the Secretary General, and through him, to other bodies of the International Civil Aviation Organization. The Technical Cooperation Bureau is responsible for providing assistance in areas such as Neutrality, Transparency and Objectivity, while the Bureau of Administration and Services would provide the much needed administrative support required by the Organization in various areas such as distribution and sales, personnel, language and publications, conference and office services for the ICAO, and so on.

It is important to understand the impact that aviation may have today, and in the future, especially with regards to the atmosphere and the pollution that aircrafts bring into the atmosphere. It is of utmost necessity to consider this fact before any more progress can be made in aviation, and today, the International Civil Aviation Organization has proved to be a responsibly civic body, which has demonstrated its awareness of problems related to aviation, time and again, through time. This body would make decisions like increasing the fuel efficiency of an aircraft through a particular method, reducing noise and pollution, making available cost effective fuel for the aircraft, and so on. The global perspectives must be considered, so that eventually, the aviation industry would derive the benefits. (Penner, 1999)
Aviation today is considered to be a safe option of traveling quickly form one place to another, and the annual growth rate is about 5% each year. If the International Civil Aviation Organization...
ICAO works in tandem with various other organizations in order to improve standards and norms, and one example is that the ICAO has been actively working with ITU since 1947. The standards for future communications, navigation, as well as for surveillance, referred to as CNS, are important issues for the International Civil Aviation Organization, and these are extremely important in modernizing the aviation and aeronautical infrastructure, and also to provide a means of promoting the growth of air transport in the near future. ("International Civil Aviation Safety, Benefits and Spectrum," 2000) it is to be hoped that the efforts of the Organization would bear fruit, and that the entire aviation industry would become united in one common goal in the near future, that of increasing the safety of air travel for the people of the world.

Aviation Risk Risk Management in Commercial Aviation Improving airline safety means continually improving policies and procedures based on the most recent evidence. The FAA, ICAO and other professionals in the airline and air freight industry are under continuing pressure to make certain that their policies and procedures represent state of the art, particularly in the area of safety. Air traffic continues to increase on a global level, leading to the need for
Like the airline industry, it seems as if the airport industry is moving towards consolidation and more airport cooperation and alliances seem likely in the future. (Graham, 2003) One approach in which civil aviation can contribute in ensuring peace amid the countries of the world is principally through its key role of facilitating communication and international discourse. The ICAO -- International Civil Aviation Organization has played a large part in
It may refer matters within its sphere of action to the commission or council. It is responsible for delegating duties to the Council and modifies or revokes the delegated authority. This shows that the Assembly reviews technical, legal, economic, and administrative operations of the organization (Goglia, Halford & Stolzer, 2010). 2.

Aviation Maintenance Management Theory & Practices Aeronautics is considered to be the most secured and fastest mode of journey. But the frequent air accidents and resulting consequences reduce our reliance on the mode. Human flaws are acknowledged to be very critical in diverse fields like medicine, mining, shipping so also aviation. Irrespective of the fact that the role human component is widely acknowledged in the cockpit, its contribution in sphere of
U.S. statistics indicate that 80% of aviation accidents are due to human errors with 50% due to maintenance human factor problems. Current human factor management programs have not succeeded to the degree desired. Many industries today use performance excellence frameworks such as the Baldrige National Quality Award framework to improve over-all organizational effectiveness, organizational culture and personal learning and growth.
