Aircrew Regulations Development Workshop in Bangladesh

9th - 13th of June, 2024


The Civil Aviation Authority Bangladesh (CAAB) joined SARI since its inception. Like other member states, they also initiated the process of formulating new PEL regulations based on the EU standards. However, various factors hindered CAAB's ability to sustain momentum in developing and implementing rules across other domains like Flight Operations and Airworthiness.


Through the assistance of the EU-SA APP II (EU-South Asia Aviation Partnership Project II), SARI (South Asia Regional Initiative) has arranged a Rule Development Workshop (RDW) in Dhaka, Bangladesh, focused on Aircrew Rules. This 5-day workshop is scheduled to be held from June 9 to 13, 2024, and its primary objective is to educate officials from the Civil Aviation Authority of Bangladesh and professionals within Bangladesh’s aviation sector on Aircrew regulations.


The activity aims to achieve the following:

  • To examine the regulatory framework and current aircrew regulations of the CAAB.

  • To provide CAAB officials with a comprehensive overview of EASA Aircrew regulations, including both hard and soft regulations, detailing their structure and underlying principles.

  • Explore the status of rules applicable/drafted.

  • Draft a roadmap leading to the implementation of Aircrew standards using EASA Aircrew Regulation 1178/2011 as a reference enabling thereby the measurement of progress within the program task and setting the applicable timelines.

  • SARI expert will offer insights into regulation drafting principles and provide practical examples explaining how to initiate drafting Aircrew regulations based on European standards. Participants will also be given the opportunity to practice regulation drafting under the guidance of the expert.
