On this occasion, representatives of EASA will hold a series of presentations on extending the powers of EASA on the issue of ATM and aerodromes, structure and requirements of Regulation no. 139/2014, facilitating a constructive exchange of views with participants at the event, focusing on the impact of changes that occur to the certification of aerodromes and the next steps to be taken by all concerned in order to ensure compliance with the requirements of this regulation .

Therefore the seminar enjoys a complex and representative participation of the aviation industry within this meeting in both industry representatives of international aviation in the EASA and representatives of aviation authorities in Italy, Denmark and Hungary, but also of some airports from Croatia and Germany.

Romanian aviation industry is represented at all levels, respectively Romanian Civil Aeronautical Authority (AACR), ROMATSA and 16 airports in Romania as well as other partners.

Therefore organizing this seminar at Cluj “Avram Inacu” International Airport  is an appreciation made for  civil aviation in general, and the high level of operational activity and management of the airport in Cluj, in this transitional period provided for by European Regulation no. 139/2014..
