In response to the crash of Air France flight AF447 in 2009 and loss of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 in 2014 ICAO submitted recommendations to track all airline flights (see §3.5 of Amendment 42 to Annex 6 Part 1). As of now, ICAO developed flight tracking standards contained in the Circular 347 (Aircraft Tracking Implementation Guidelines), so each country’s aviation authorities could potentially put forth its own requirements. The European Commission has issued Commission Regulation (EU) 2015/2338 in 11 December 2015, so EASA, in its turn, developed Acceptable Means of Compliance (AMC) and Guidance Material (GM) to Part-CAT (Issue 2, Amendment 13) as regards requirements for aircraft tracking systems.

ICAO has recommended that by 8 November 2018, while European Commission has established that by 16 December 2018, all operators should track the position of their aeroplanes through automated reporting at time intervals which do not exceed 15 minutes. This is applicable only for aeroplanes with a maximum certificated take-off mass of more than 27 000 kg and with a seating capacity of more than 19 and where ATS obtain aeroplane position report messages at greater then 15-minutes intervals. The premise is that automatically capturing aircraft position data, either by ATS or the operator, can be used to fulfil aircraft tracking requirements. In other words, an operator may suspend its own 4D/15 tracking in areas where position information is received by ATS.

In order to comply with the aircraft tracking requirements an operator should:

  • install a tracking system (based either on ADS-B OUT transponder or SATCOM or HF/VHF ACARS),
  • amend aircraft flight and maintenance manuals,
  • subscribe to a web-based dashboard that provides real-time aircraft tracking,
  • provide staff training.

We provide complex services to our clients:

  • supply and installation of tracking systems,
  • documents approved by the State Aviation Administration of Ukraine,
  • necessary tools, equipment, materials and personnel,
  • training, technical support and assistance.

Documents approved by the Ukrainian NAA include:
  • Supplemental Type Certificate (STC),
  • Flight Manual Supplement,
  • Instructions for Continued Airworthiness,
  • Illustrated Parts Catalog (IPC) Supplement,
  • Supplement to MMEL (if applicable),
  • Service Bulletin with accomplishment instructions (maintenance level is base).
System check out (ground test) should be performed onboard of every new aircraft model in the Approved Model List of STC.
We can provide necessary tools and equipment, materials and staff. The customer issues Engineering Order and CRS.
