The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand (CAAT) has approved a draft regulation aimed at streamlining licensing provisions for business operators in civil aviation.

 

CAAT director Chula Sukmanop said that the new regulation would establish a subcommittee to screen applications for civil aviation business licences as well as set up licence application and renewal procedures.

 

Under the new regulations, aviation business licences will be divided into two categories: air transport for commercial use for regular airlines and private charters, and aerial works of a non-passenger transport nature for small aircraft and drones.

 

The latter is expected to promote new aviation businesses such as scenic air tours, aerial photography and crop dusting.

 

The draft regulation will soon be presented to Minister of Transport for approval, after which it will be published in the Government Gazette with immediate effect.

 

The legislation was amended to be in compliance with the new Air Navigation Act B.E. 2497.

 

Chula also said that the CAAT will host the International Civil Aviation Organisation Assembly for the first time in Thailand from July 22-24 in Phuket. The event will draw 300 representatives from 192 ICAO member countries and “will be a great opportunity for the Thai aviation sector to exchange experiences and study ICAO standards for practical application”, Chula said.
