Areas of Expertise: Aviation Strategic Planning

Country: Europe and North America: Armenia

The Government of Armenia’s Transport Sector Strategy was originally prepared in 1997 and there is a need for development of a new transport strategy in order to respond effectively to transport demands. Funded by the ADB, the National Transport Sector Project (including the National Civil Aviation Plan) was initiated with LEAPP assigned to carry out the Civil Aviation Sector Plan.  Although all transport modes were addressed by the consultants the national civil aviation sector plan was a critical element as civil aviation had been constrained by its past development under Soviet Russia and had not been developed in compliance with ICAO SARPs. 

The project investigated all aspects of civil aviation administration, regulation, operation and infrastructure in Armenia, and prepared a national civil aviation development plan for improvement to meet the Standards and Recommended Practices of ICAO in terms of legal instruments, regulation, institutional structures, air transport connectivity, and civil aviation infrastructure such as the national airports and national air traffic and air navigation services system.  Through this project, Armenia was provided with a national civil aviation development plan that will act as a guide for upgrading of the civil aviation infrastructure, restructuring of civil aviation administration, regulation and operation, and for directing future investment in civil aviation with assistance of the international funding agencies.

Country: Asia and the Pacific: Bhutan

LEAPP was appointed by the Asian Development Bank to carry out a study to investigate opportunities to enhance air transport connectivity between Bhutan and its regional neighbours, and within Bhutan, to increase tourism and realise economic and social benefits.  LEAPP studied the international and domestic airports and identified upgrading projects to improve these airports in terms of safety and capacity.  Upgrading and expansion projects were prioritized and evaluated in financial and economic terms for investment by the ADB and other investors.  The outcome of the project is to identify and plan airport improvements to accommodate unconstrained long-term air traffic demand, yet still provide a framework for phased development to meet capacity, operational safety, security, efficiency & service requirements, while ensuring environmental, social, economic, commercial, and financial objectives are also met.

LEAPP were appointed by the Asian Development Bank to perform the institutional and legal reform for Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) of Bhutan to enhance air transport operations. In terms of legal reform, LEAPP has reviewed the CAA, BANRs and other legal instruments and regulations and developed new draft for CAA. In regards to institutional improvement, LEAPP reviewed DCA organization structure, staffing, and training programmes, prepared restructuring approach to separate regulatory and operational functions, developed structures for Civil Aviation Authority as Regulator, and Airports Company as operator of the national airports and airspace and identified staffing levels and training needs for the two organizations. In addition, LEAPP assessed current financial performance of DCA and performed financial performance analysis for DCA / Bhutan Civil Aviation Authority and proposed new Airports Company. Another result of the project is the development of an Implementation and Transition Plan for the restructuring of DCA

Country: Africa: Botswana

Under Technical Assistance funding by ICAO / UNDP, LEAPP carried out a comprehensive review of the responsibilities, legal basis, functions, staffing, management, financial operations and management control systems of the Department of Civil Aviation. Inspections were undertaken of all civil aviation infrastructure owned and operated by the DCA throughout the country (airports, air navigation and telecommunications facilities, ATC and AIS units).  From there, upgrading requirements and capital funding needs were determined and options for restructuring the Civil Aviation Department into a parastatal Authority, separated from government were also developed.  The project defined all required regulatory and operational functions and responsibilities to ensure compliance with ICAO Annexes, staffing levels and grades, training programmes and implementation schedules. Analysis of the financial performance was undertaken, along with a review of rates and charges, and alternative financial control systems were proposed.  In addition, a representative operating and capital budgets were prepared for the new authority and submitted to government.

As part of a broad study of civil aviation development, LEAPP professionals inspected all Botswana's national airports to identify deficiencies and requirements. This led to the definition of a programme designed to upgrade the airports based on a functional classification system.

As part of a broad study, LEAPP determined the provincial Government policy towards the support of the regional airports of the Toronto Area. Studies were made of the roles and capabilities of the regional airports and their international, regional, domestic, general and business aviation uses.

During the study LEAPP determined the ability of each site to expand and serve a wider role. The Company established which of the airports should be encouraged to develop to serve the commercial business and general aviation needs of the region. The study included traffic forecasting and assignment analysis, airport site reviews, airport master planning, and defined the required capital works needed to serve a longer term traffic need.
