CANSO launches new Asia-Pacific office

CANSO, the Civil Air Navigation Service Organisation, has opened a new regional office for the Asia-Pacific. Based at Singapores Aviation Academy, the office will co-ordinate and assist the work of ANSPs in tackling the most pressing ATM issues in the region.
The office will be led by Hai Eng Chiang, formally a Deputy Director General and Director of Air Traffic Services AT CAAS. Mr Chiang will focus on key issues such as pushing for implementation of ADS-B over the South China Sea, a project that will be conducted together with IATA. Regional model expanding across the globe CANSO Secretary General Alexander ter Kuile says that the Asia-Pacific office marks another step in increasing CANSOs presence in regional aviation markets across the world: CANSO seeks to be the Global Voice of ATM and the opening of our new regional office in what will soon be the worlds largest aviation market is a sign of our intent. CANSOs Imagine 2010 programme calls for a greater focus on regional co-ordination, and our regional office network will enable CANSO to help its members progress performance in safety, environment, and in the transformation of ATM. CANSO Director of Asia-Pacific Affairs, Hai Eng Chiang, said I am delighted that CANSO members have agreed to support the work of this office to help deliver real improvements to ATM in the Asia-Pacific region. The projects we will focus on such as pushing for ADS-B implementation in the South China Sea will be instrumental in creating the effective and efficient aviation system that this region will need in the future.
