Israeli Transportation Minister Shaul Mofaz has adopted the conclusions of the Lapidot Report about serious safety oversight deficiencies in Israel.
Mofaz instructed Civil Aviation Authority chief Udi Zohar and the newly appointed director of the Airports Authority “to move ahead as quickly as possible” in putting the report’s recommendations into practice.
Mofaz said that the references in the report to restructuring the administrative structure of the CAA were especially important. The Lapidot panel recommended implementing a new organizational structure and to enlist eight experts in various aviation fields.
Mofaz also stressed the clauses pertaining to the need to install new navigational aids.
