Recalling Lanka’s entry into Intn’l Civil Aviation on June 1, 1948

Fifty two states gathered in Chicago in the United States to deliberate and agree upon the Convention on International Civil Aviation and signed a convention on December 7, 1944. It is known among the aviation community as the Chicago Convention. The Convention resulted in the creation of the International Civil Aviation Organisation - an UN specialised Agency.

Around 11,000 standards and recommended practices have been issued since then by the International Civil Aviation Organisation to be followed by the 193 member states.

Seventy two years ago on June 1, Sri Lanka became a member of the International Civil Aviation Organization. June 1, 1948 will always be an important day for Civil Aviation in Sri Lanka, which has resulted in the enabling of the country to forge a regulatory path that ensures safety and security in the Civil Aviation Industry.

During the last 72 years the Civil Aviation Authority of Sri Lanka and its predecessor the Department of Civil Aviation has always placed the highest priority in ensuring safety and security in our air space. The Civil Aviation Authority of Sri Lanka is the Government Entity delegated with the state responsibility to implement the aforementioned nearly 11000 standards and recommended practices.
