The European Aviation Safety Agency last week postponed the highly anticipated April 9 deadline for implementation of rules regarding Safety Management Systems, which would cover flight operations in the European Union of aircraft weighing more than 12,500 pounds. The agency said work yet to be completed did not allow it to meet last week’s initial date.

EASA said it now plans to complete the work to implement a regulation governing all non-commercial operators, which will require a Safety Management System, before the end of this year.
