The final Mutual Bilateral Airworthiness Recognition (MBAR) conference, attended by the National Military Authorities (NMA) directors representing the Czech Republic, Croatia, Hungary, and the Slovak Republic, took place in Prague on December 12, 2019. The participants signed the Recognition Certificates (RC) of training procedures, rules of the aircrews and maintenance personnel in the scope of MATC elements to the 31st of December 2023.
In addition, this act has simultaneously confirmed successful mutual cooperation among the Czech, Croatian, Hungarian, and Slovakian MAAs not only for the MATC benefit but also, in the wider perspective, for an exchange of lessons-learned and further harmonization of procedures applied in the Air Forces of individual participating countries.
Participants agreed to continue their cooperation in 2020 in the form of RC’s review. The working groups are going to assess whether RC’s still support the partners’ needs for recognition, and also to make sure that they provide an appropriate level within the signed certificates.
