Extending the 1995 agreement of a cross-border open skies agreement to an open skies agreement that maximizes competition between airlines in the market, including activities outside and outside the territory of the contracting parties, with minimal state intervention and regulation; and the Canadian aeronautical product of any aviation product subject to an airworthiness regime by Transport Canada Civil Aviation. 1.1.2. mutual acceptance of the findings that new or used civil aviation products meet the airworthiness and environmental import requirements of one of the contracting parties. Contrary to the rules, the agreements do not apply directly to regulated enterprises, but are exchanges of rights and obligations between governments. In addition, an executive agreement cannot be used to modify, defeat or cancel inconsistent rules. Finally, one commentator, the Aviation Suppliers Association, supported most of the proposal, but opposed the proposed amendments to Sections 43.17(d) (2) and (d) (4). In particular, the organization is concerned about the reference to “the U.S.-Canada agreement.” As mentioned above, this “agreement” refers to the United States and Canada BASA and their PMIs being negotiated. First, the commentator contradicts the fact that the proposed amendment “would deprive the public of future comments – [because] an international agreement – is not the subject of communications and comments, and [it] can therefore be amended without public notice or even public communication. Second, the commentator argues that “future changes to bilateral agreements” could potentially “affect the trade and affairs of domestic companies.” The commentator also characterizes this second concern as an assertion that the agreement “could establish standards affecting trade relations without a reasonable security advantage.” These two concerns have no place. Bilateral aviation safety agreements: In recent years, the United States has reached agreements with several countries to improve cooperation and improve civil aviation safety efficiency.
The agreements provide for the development of intellectual property between the aviation authorities of each country. The IP system deals with the technical details of the agreement in areas such as certification, maintenance, simulators and air operations. Maintenance enforcement procedures (PMIs) define the conditions under which the FAA and the foreign civil aviation authority can accept inspections and assessments of maintenance facilities in order to comply with regulations. Its objective is to reduce redundant regulatory oversight without compromising aviation safety. The PMI sets the parameters and requirements for maintenance and modifications in the country that does not have regulatory control over the product. The ides are generally structured to ensure a level of security equivalent to that of the FAA regulation. They do so by requiring the foreign person to comply with the rules in that country and by listing specific conditions.
