Glenn Wicks Meets with Ambassador Batbayar of Mongolia

On Friday, 26 April, Glenn Wicks, Managing Director of the Wicks Group (TWG), met with the Mongolian Ambassador to the United States, Ambassador U. Batbayar, to discuss the services that TWG will be providing the Mongolian government in preparation for an International Aviation Safety Audit (IASA) from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

TWG was selected by the government of Mongolia to provide technical assistance in its preparations for the IASA, which it is undertaking with the goal of achieving FAA Category 1 status. This designation would enable Mongolia to initiate direct flights to the United States.

TWG will be working closely with the Mongolian Civil Aviation Authority (MCAA) and MIAT, the flag carrier of Mongolia, to assist in these preparations, and will be undertaking travel to Mongolia this summer to establish a baseline assessment of the country’s readiness for the IASA.

Established in 1999 and based in Washington, DC, TWG has a lengthy record of providing technical assistance to civil aviation authorities (CAAs”) worldwide, including but not limited to the CAAs of India, Panama, Cabo Verde, Azerbaijan, Ukraine, and Trinidad and Tobago. In all, ten FAA Category 1 ratings have been issued to TWG IASA technical assistance clients to date – a 100% track record. TWG also regularly assists foreign air carriers with obtaining the US government approvals needed for US air carrier operations and foreign repair stations with securing FAA certification required to maintain US-registered aircraft.
