ERA’s Current Position

ERA continues to monitor any regulatory proposals regarding ground handling.

The Directorate regularly attends the UK’s Ground Handling Operations Safety Team (GHOST), a multi-disciplined group set up by the UK Civil Aviation Authority and industry stakeholders to mitigate the safety risks from ground handling along with the support of numerous activities.  The group agrees approaches which could be in the form of a new high profile initiative or project, and provides clarity or enhanced guidance to an existing regulation, policy or procedure.


Latest update 12/02/2018: The 41st meeting of GHOST was held at Aviation House, Gatwick Airport on 8 February 2018, which ERA attended. The meeting covered numerous ground handling issues, including an update on the EASA aerodrome and ground handling collaborative analysis group, pushback errors, dangerous goods, a new ground vehicle proximity system and a safety ‘swap shop’. ERA's summary of the meeting is available to view via the Downloads section.
