EASA is an agency of the European Union, established in 2003, and employs around 800 professionals from all over Europe.
The Agency regularly revises the risks and improves the common regulations applied among EU countries and airlines so they are always of the highest standard, in close collaboration with the National Aviation Authorities and aviation manufacturers across Europe.
In addition, the Agency’s experts apply strict certification and inspection standards to provide European citizens with the safest and most environmentally friendly aviation system in the world.
Our safety priorities are recorded in the European Plan for Aviation Safety (EPAS) and are aligned with other international air transport organisations.
To further improve rotorcraft safety and to strengthen the helicopter industry in a sustainable way, the Agency has established the European Rotorcraft Roadmap, focused on transversal issues including training, operations, initial and continuing airworthiness, the environment and innovation.
Moreover, rotorcraft enthusiasts can join the community of Rotorcraft | EASA Community (europa.eu) to share their passion, to exchange opinions and ideas, to ask questions and to keep each other updated on rotorcraft topics.
