 - November 2, 2009, 4:45 AM

The European Business Aviation Association (EBAA) is developing an emergency response planning manual for business aircraft owners and operators. The publication
is due to be released next month and will be available to EBAA members and any operators based in Europe to help them establish their own emergency response plan (ERP). The manual will cover flight operations, handling the media, engineering and maintenance, security, finance, legal issues, risk management and insurance. The International Civil Aviation Organization has set a deadline of November next year for all operators to establish a safety-management system. An ERP manual will form a key part of this requirement.
