What did the group achieve in 2016? The Operations Group held a successful spring meeting at the Headquarters of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) on 19 and 20 April in Cologne, Germany. A number of ERA member airlines attended as well as a selection of experts from our suppliers, all of whom participated in a highly informative and interesting two-day event which generated interesting, relevant operational-focussed discussion. The second meeting of 2016 was held during the ERA General Assembly on 11 and12 October 2016 in Madrid, Spain. This was a very well-attended meeting with a good agenda covering topics such as the provision of GPS altitude - instead of BARO VNAV - when flying LNAV/VNAV procedures, drug and alcohol screening for aircrew in light of the Germanwings Taskforce Recommendations, Aviation Security Support and a review of Surveillance Performance and Interoperability – Implementing Rule Revision Progress. The first Operations Group meeting of 2017 was be held at EASA’s new headquarters in Cologne on 13 and 14 March 2017, the first day of which was a joint meeting with ERA's Air Safety Group. The next meeting is scheduled for 17 and 18 October 2017 in Athens, Greece, during the ERA General Assembly.
