Aviation Standards for Peacekeeping and Humanitarian Air Transport Ops
In recent times the UN has significantly increased its aviation activities, especially in the field of peacekeeping operations and humanitarian support. A large number of fixed and rotary wing aircraft are participating in missions with an extreme variety of operational tasks. Commercial operators and military units from different countries are taking part in these operations. Although commercial operators comply with Rules and Regulations of their State Regulatory Authorities, and through them with ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices, differences in national regulations and practices might exist that potentially generate different standards of aviation safety. To avoid that possibility and in line with the ICAO recommendation that the UN regard itself as a State and promulgate its own aviation standards and procedures, the Department of Peacekeeping Operations and the World Food Programme have established common aviation standards for humanitarian and peacekeeping air transport operations to facilitate interoperability. The current version (Sept 2012) replaces and supersedes the previous version (Jan 2003).
