Aviation plays a more prominent role in Sudan as a transport network, more than in many African countries because of the geographic nature and size of the country and its medium but widely dispersed population. The aviation industry acts as a catalyst for business, trade and tourism as well as being an important community resource.
The aviation industry encompasses a wide range of interested parties ranging from light aircraft owners through to large international and domestic carriers as well as trade and tourism bodies and the traveling public.
The views and needs of these parties are diverse and, in some cases, conflicting. The marginal financial position of many small operations, especially in the general aviation sector, combined with increasing competition in a relatively small market place, can represent a risk to safety. A loss of confidence in the safety of the aviation could therefore have major repercussions.
Following a period of community and political concerns about air safety stemming from several tragic accidents involving fare -paying passengers, in the past years, the recognition of the need to sustain Sudan highly regarded record of aviation safety. made the measures taken by government in recent years to be aimed at consolidating the need for a safe reliable aviation, and makes it necessary that the national carrier Sudan Airways company to service the internal domestic aviation and the private special flights to further improve the safety framework that has served the traveling public so well through out the aviation history in Sudan.
