ICAO is the International Civil Aviation Organization. It is a specialised agency of the United Nations, comprised of 193 member states, and founded in 1944. It was established to promote and regulate international aviation. ICAO’s primary mission is to develop and maintain international standards and regulations. These standards are related to aviation safety, security, efficiency, and environmental protection. The standards are designed to ensure the safe and orderly conduct of international civil aviation.

What are the future aims of the ICAO?

Safety and security are paramount to the work of the ICAO. Therefore the current standards are constantly being improved upon. Environmental responsibility is an ever-increasing focus. Measures are being taken to address aircraft emissions and promote more fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly aviation technologies. ICAO are collaborating with other international organisations to improve upon current processes. The organisation is developing its navigation systems, including the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), to establish new air routes. All in all, the work of ICAO is essential for the safe, secure and efficient operation of international aviation, now and in the future. It adapts to meet the evolving needs and challenges of the aviation industry.
