A joint project group of foreign and domestic experts in different areas of aviation administration (flight operations, airworthiness, airfields and ground services, air navigation, aviation security, aviation legislation, work with aviation personnel) has been established.
Within the framework of the project group, introductory presentations and seminars will be held alongside meetings with representatives of Air Astana, Scat and Kazaviaspas air companies, the Academy of Civil Aviation, airports, and air navigation to explain the previous changes.
