FAA lists 26 flaws in Thailand’s aviation standards that need rectification

The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has identified 26 flaws in Thailand’s aviation standards during its recent inspection and has recommended that they be rectified if Thailand is to regain Category One status.

 

Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand director Mr. Chula Sukmanop said that some of the 26 flaws recently identified were already known and were in the process of being rectified. These include the number of personnel assigned to aviation safety, which must be adjusted to conform to the required aviation standard.

 

He said that the US’s FAA would submit its official inspection report to the CAAT within 60 days through the US embassy in Bangkok. Following that, the CAAT will make rectifications as recommended before asking the FAA for re-inspection.

I wouldn't be surprised if he is also the president of the "Friends of Icarus Association"

And Vietnam has used their Category One status to initiate direct flights to the US and code shares with US airlines. With the Trump Kim Summit in Hanoi next week, Vietnam is rapidly eclipsing Thailand's influence in the region. 

If the current political mess doesn't improve, it would not be a surprise to see the US and the West shift more and more towards Vietnam and away from Thailand. 

As many in Thailand are determined to make the country a Chinese colony, I think this is the likelihood.

And I could totally see Trump calling their bluff, which would shock the powers here. As many have and are learning, China does nothing unless it is THEIR interest. There is no bigger, global picture - it's all what can China get from it.

Sadly, China is not above paying bribes for influence and the Thais are not below taking these bribes. By the time people here wake up, Thailand will be owned by the Chinese.

What about the ones that weren’t known?
