The Transition From RASOS to CASSOS
In 2001, seven Member States of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) agreed to form an Association of Civil Aviation Authorities of the Caribbean (ACAAC). The Association was formed under the aegis of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO). The decision was based on shared goals of the orderly and safe development of aviation in the Region, and the recognition of the need to collaborate by maximizing the use of the Region’s scarce resources. A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) which set out the Association’s main objectives was developed and singed by the Directors of Civil Aviation of Barbados, Belize, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago.
The interim Regional Aviation Safety Oversight System (RASOS) Office was the operating arm of the Association of Civil Aviation Authorities of the Caribbean (ACAAC), located on the same site at the Jamaica Civil Aviation Authority.
