ENAC

ENAC, Ente Nazionale per l’Aviazione Civile, was established by Law Decree 250/97 on July 1997, merging former DGAC and RAI structures. It is based in Rome (Italy) and has territorial Directions and Offices in all the Italian regions. The Italian Air Navigation Code, under art. 687, states that ENAC is the only Civil Aviation Authority in Italy. In the framework of EU regulations, ENAC is therefore the “Competent Authority” of Italy. ENAC is the Italian single authority in the technical regulation, certification, supervision and control of civil aviation with powers conferred by the Italian Navigation Code. ENAC has established a strong connection with a number of international bodies and cooperates and holds a leadership position in ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization), the specialized agency of the United Nations charged with the task of defining common regulatory and technical civil aviation standards within its member countries. In the framework of the "Creation of Italian National Ecosystem for Advanced Air Mobility" project, in September 2021 ENAC issued the National Strategic Plan AAM (2021-2030) for the development of Advanced Air Mobility in Italy, according to its mission of National Civil Aviation Authority. The National Strategic Plan AAM (2021-2030) is associated with a roadmap composed of 59 actions several of them regard the development of technologies and solutions in the PNT domain. ENAC's perspective is to develop a regulatory strategy open to technological innovation that looks at ideas, at resources and skills coming from Universities, Research Bodies and Industry It wants to be a key player for now and the future for the promotion and development of the future air mobility in the respect of the European policy.
