Federal Aviation Administration Fiscal Year 2010 Business Plan: International Aviation

Advancing the nation's longstanding leadership in the global arena is a primary responsibility of the Office of International Aviation (API). Our staff encourages, promotes and facilitates the adoption of the Federal Aviation Adminisration (FAA) policies and practices worldwide. API's critical role is ensuring the international activities of FAA's lines of business and staff offices are integrated. The API staff brings safety and efficiency to millions of passengers each year as we arrange highly regarded technical assistance and training and work to harmonize global standards so passengers can benefit from a seamless air transportation network. In FY 2010 our challenges include: Identifying international priorities for the FAA; Promoting NextGen as the agency moves forward in its commitment to expand the use of those concepts, technologies and procedures internationally; Increasing FAA's leadership presence by establishing a second office in Latin America; and Improving our support of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) by coordinating FAA's work with the Industry Safety Strategy Group (ISSG) for the Global Aviation Safety Road Map. Through our strategic activities in FY 2010, we are committed to supporting Presidential safety programs in Afghanistan, Africa, and Iraq and building mutually beneficial partnerships with civil aviation organizations in the Middle East, China, India and Latin America. We will continue to support creating government-industry partnerships and strengthening the capabilities of regional aviation authorities and organizations through technical assistance and training. We will collaborate with the Office of Energy and Environment in demonstrating best U.S. environmental practices and work across the lines of business to identify projects funded by donor organizations which will strengthen the global aviation infrastructure. We will continue our core activities to build and maintain bilateral and multilateral relationships, support FAA senior leadership in achieving U.S. objectives, and negotiate agreements that improve safety and efficiency worldwide.
