First of all, the achievement of the Japan Civil Aviation Bureau (JCAB) is ensuring safe

and security operation. The Civil Aviation Bureau examines whether air carriers are able to
conduct their operations safely whenever new air services are launched, and inspects their
facilities for the operations, maintenance, and training. Then, aviation safety also has improved
in Japan. To this end, the JCAB conducts the following activities such as inspections of aircraft
and equipment, checks of the operation and maintenance systems of the air carriers,
confirmation of the competency of aviation personnel, such as pilots and mechanics, through
examinations and other checks, and ramp inspections of foreign registered aircraft at airports in
Japan. To prevent aircraft accidents, the operational skills of the pilots and the quality of
maintenance by mechanics are highly important. To enhance the safe operation of aircraft, the
Bureau conducts written examinations and practical examinations for airmen in order to issue
competence certificates, in accordance with the Annex 1 to the Convention on International
Civil Aviation. Moreover, Japan has developed the Japanese language Proficiency Certification
System for pilots operating international flight from 2006. To ensure the sufficient supply of air
transport service, it is necessary to provide sufficient pilots to meet the demand. Those who
have completed training at the Civil Aviation College or other approved training facilities are
exempted from the practical examinations for competence certification.

For the contribution, JCAB Japan provides developing countries with ODA (Official
Development Assistance) as a part of its contribution to the international society. Among these
activities, JICA (Japan International Cooperation Administration) and the Civil Aviation Bureau
jointly promote technical cooperation and grant aid. After that, Japanese Companies
participating in the Development programs of the advanced Airliners. Several Japanese
companies are actively joining in the development programs of the advanced airliners, such as
Boeing 787 and Airbus A-380. Japan is actively participating in and financially supporting the
improvement of aviation security in the world through international coordination of security
standards and capacity building efforts. These activities include the participation in the ICAO's
aviation security action plan, aviation security project between ASEAN and Japan, holding
seminars about aviation security, bilateral or multilateral coordination of aviation security
standards and counter-measures and offering assistance to such projects as the improvement
of the security equipment in the major airports in Indonesia and making the master plan for
aviation security in the Philippines.
Japanese government and collaboration with other companies will develop an
environmentally friendly and regional jet and small aircraft jet engine. Japanese government
and other companies are also cooperating in the development of a 70-90 seats jet aircraft. Thus
the CAB will conduct related research, certification procedure, in order to evaluate
environmental and safety conformity with applicable regulations. Besides that, government and
several other companies will develop an advanced jet engine which is expected to greatly
improve aircraft fuel efficiency and also improve environmental suitability by reducing noise
and emissions with new technologies. Other than that, Japanese governments are also planning
to implement new air navigation system. In directly this will strengthened communications,
navigation and surveillance functions also will ensure safety, and reduce the separation
minimum in oceanic airspace to increase the capacity. In addition the operation of the air
transport satellite system and the existing air navigation systems will become more advanced,
and various new generation air traffic control systems will be implemented, including a new
generation air traffic console system with control functions
