ICAO Assembly Meeting
The last time I participated in the International Civil Aviation Organisation’s 3-yearly Assembly was 6-years ago. It’s noticeable how much less paper there is this time and how much more reliance there is on phones and tablets. A number of technical subjects under discussion are forever with us, like accident investigation. That said, innovation and cyber security are amongst the newer ones.
Being here as an observer reminds me how much effort is required to get agreement between the 193 States of ICAO. It’s a huge credit to the organisation’s secretariat that the Assembly runs like clockwork even when changes are made at the last minute.
I am grateful to be accepted as an observer to this important international event in the aviation calendar.
