Aluno ICAO NOW é citado em artigo de "International Operations" da AIN sobre as Olimpíadas
A ICAO NOW gostaria de parabenizar o ilustríssimo Comandante Antônio Donizeti Sávio, Chefe de operações da Líder Aviação cujo tivemos a extrema honra e prazer em auxiliar em sua preparação para sua apresentação para a Conferencia internacional de operadores na National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) no dia 22 de março de 2016.
Uma apresentação que serviu como uma janela para os operadores internacionais que pretendem visitar o Brasil para os jogos Olímpicos de 2016, e contou com a presença dos maiores nomes da indústria aeronáutica executiva mundial.
Mais uma vez queremos agradecer o comandante pela oportunidade de fazer parte de um evento tão significativo para o setor aeronáutico mundial e principalmente para o Brasil. Mais informações: https://www.nbaa.org/events/ioc/2016/
Agora temos a subsequente repercussão de seu sucesso, confira na integra matéria lançada pela AIN Publications citado nosso prezado aluno.
South America: The South America Regional Review focused on Brazil, explained session moderator Phil Tyler of flight planning service AvPlan Trip Support, because it’s one of the most complex regions in South America procedurally; it’s among the most frequent destinations on the continent; and Rio’s Olympics officials expect at least 1,000 business aircraft.
Picking up the round-the-world route for its transatlantic leg from Dakar, Senegal (GOOY), to Recife (SBRF), Antonio Savio, pilot for Brazil based Lider Aviaçao, reminded pilots of the violent thunderstorms and other weather hazards associated with the Inter-tropical Convergence Zone in the equatorial region. Flights from North America should consider the longer coastal route, he advised, rather than the more direct flight path over the Amazon, which provides few options for handling unplanned events. An emergency locator transmitter or a jungle survival kit is required for Amazon overflights.
Brazil has Byzantine permitting processes, customs and immigration rules and airport fee schedules, as Cynthia de Oliveria from Lider Aviaçao’s flight planning department highlighted. Airport fees are high, calculated by individual airport administrators factoring in time on ground, origin of the flight and destination.
During Olympic events, airspace around stadiums and other sports facilities will have exclusion “zones,” four- and seven-nm-diameter concentric circles of prohibited red and restricted yellow areas extending to FL195. Some airports in Rio and other cities hosting competitions are within restricted areas, and GA aircraft operating within them may require aircraft security inspections or checks. De Oliveria said zone rules were developed for regulating airline operations, and “discussions about the applicability of these measures to general aviation” continue.
A new Temporary Admission Term (Teat) limit imposed by Customs at some airports in Brazil, Manaus among them, requires aircraft to leave the country by an assigned date or face a fine up to 10 percent of the aircraft’s value. The Teat document is available only in Portuguese. Awareness of the exit date is especially important for affected operations “if it’s necessary to change the schedule of the flight,” because the exit date can be overlooked in the process, de Oliveria said.
The Zika virus–the mosquito-borne disease linked in Brazil to an outbreak of microcephaly among babies born to infected mothers– is also a concern of visitors, and AvPlan’s David Kang differentiated Zika’s “myth and reality” during his portion of the South America overview. Kang noted the Olympics are staged in July, Brazil’s driest month, when the mosquito population is low, “so it’s not a huge threat” to visitors. If contracted, “it’s just a bad flu for most people,” he said. “The risk is to pregnant females. It is not Ebola, it is not West Nile Virus, it is not smallpox; it can be managed.”
If Venezuela lies along the route to or from Brazil–or anywhere else–avoid it, Kang advised. Overflight permits can’t be secured in advance and “they have a tendency to make up unpaid fees” for previous services, he said, and prohibit overflight until immediate payment is arranged.
