ICAO state letter on lasers

The hazard posed by deliberate laser attacks against civil aircraft is a safety matter of increasing concern. With this in mind, ICAO Secretary General, Fang Liu, has written to all states encouraging them to enforce applicable laws when malicious laser attacks are perpetrated against civil aircraft.

With reported laser attacks against civil aircraft on the increase, ICAO has written to all states with the aim to continue raising awareness of the dangers of laser illumination of aircraft.  Additionally, the letter encourage states to continue the progress being made to enforce applicable laws when laser attacks are perpetrated. The letter is available to download from the top of this page.

With laser attacks being a topic regularly discussed at meetings of the ERA Air Safety Group, ERA is keen to hear about members' experiences so that we can continue highlighting this menace at various safety forums we attend on behalf of our members.
