MOSCOW, November 21. /ITAR-TASS/. The Federal Air Transport Agency (Rosaviatsiya) supports an initiative to limit the life service of airplanes. “I support to do it for passenger air companies, but this should be announced in advance,” Rosaviatsiya head Aleksander Neradko told reporters on Thursday.
“Years ago Henry Ford was asked which car is better and he replied that a new car is better,” Neradko said in reply to a question of journalists about the initiative of the deputies of the State Duma lower house of parliament over the limitation of the service life of civil airplanes up to 20 years.
Meanwhile, the Rosaviatsiya head noted that “restrictive measures should be made public by the air companies in advance long before this law is enacted.” He gave as an example the actions of the European aviation authorities to introduce limits for the permissible noise level of the engines of the civil airplanes during the fights to the EU states. “In 2002 the restrictions were imposed on the flights of noisy airplanes in Europe. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) stated about the introduction of this requirement 25 years before it entered into force that made it possible for the air companies to prepare and renovate their air fleet,” he recalled.
In the view of Neradko, if this restriction is introduced right now, regional shipments, where the air fleet is the oldest one, will be limited considerably that will affect seriously the capacities of movement of people.
“Therefore, I support to do it for passenger airplanes, this requirement may spread on passenger and freight airplanes, but this decision should be announced in advance,” Neradko said.
