Saturday, 01 Oct 2022 11:25 AM MYT KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 1 — Malaysia’s air safety rating in the United States (US) has been restored to Category 1 after all 33 issues raised by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) were resolved, said Transport Minister Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong.He said the issues picked up by the FAA in 2019 initially did not reoccur and the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM) was able to resolve 29 out of the total issues from the second assessment by FAA in December last year in the span of just six months.“By mid-July this year, the FAA returned for a reassessment and CAAM had already completed all responses for the 29 findings and all corrective action plans were closed.The driver then paid the full amount owed at the same place and time.“The past two years have been a crucial period for CAAM as the whole organisation was restructured while various efforts were carried out to strengthen its workforce, documentation and develop comprehensive training policy for the inspectors,” he said in an online press conference today.Wee is currently on an official visit to the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) headquarters in Montreal, Canada, where he met with Transport Ministers from other countries to discuss technical cooperation."The public can also call the MetMalaysia hotline at 1-300-22-1638 for any enquiries," he said.

According to Wee, a Category 1 air safety rating means Malaysia’s civil aviation authority complies with ICAO safety standards.Those caught tailgating and evading tolls will be breaking a number of rules.“With an IASA (International Aviation Safety Assessment) Category 1 rating, a country’s air carriers can establish service to the US and carry the code of US carriers.To maintain that rating, a country must adhere to the ICAO safety standards.“Meanwhile, a Category 2 rating means the country either lacks laws or regulations necessary to oversee air carriers in accordance with minimum international standards, or its civil aviation authority is deficient in one or more aspects, such as technical expertise, trained personnel, record-keeping or inspection procedures,” he added.Similarly, you could also be guilty under Section 279 of the Penal Code, which punishes rash driving that could harm others with up to six months of jail time and/or a fine of up to RM2,000.With Malaysia regaining Category 1, Wee said the country will be able to chart more flights or open new flight routes to the US, further boosting economic and tourism opportunities for Malaysia.

In November 2019, Malaysia was assigned Category 2 in its air safety rating under the IASA programme by the FAA due to non-compliance with the ICAO safety standards.The assessment found that CAAM had 58 findings in total, 25 of which were able to be resolved while 33 remained open, which led to the air safety ranking downgrade during that year.— Bernama Advertisement.
