The 2020 Annual Report of the Pacific Aviation Safety Office (PASO) provides the Pacific aviation community with a comprehensive account of PASO’s programmes, activities and achievements for the 2020 reporting period and sets out priorities for the year ahead.
2020 was a year like no other for PASO and Pacific aviation, presenting unprecedented challenges and significant contraction in aviation activity across the region due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The PASO Annual Report 2020 outlines the financial and operational impacts of the pandemic and the steps PASO put into place to adapt, rethink and innovate our operations.
The Report promotes financial transparency through detailed financial reporting including financial statements and analysis for the PASO financial year (2020 calendar year).
The format of the latest Annual Report is now more visual, highlighting the year in review, our COVID-19 response, regional engagement, and includes a case study showcasing PASO’s Offsite Certification Audits (OSCA) process for aircraft airworthiness certification in Vanuatu.
PASO is accountable to our Council of Directors as well as our development partners. The publication of this Annual Report fulfils an important element of PASO’s reporting responsibilities to our Council and is prepared in accordance with the PASO Constitution.
