Through our training programmes, the ramp inspectors are enabled to carry out their inspection tasks on civil aircraft.

Background and Certification

Background and Certification

In the European Union and its member states, aviation safety is regulated by the European Regulation 965/2012. It specifies technical requirements and administrative procedures in the field of civil aviation. This also includes ramp inspections on aircraft from other countries as well as their flight crews according to the currently applicable international (ICAO) as well as European (EASA) safety requirements.

The steep GmbH has been an approved SAFA Training Organisation since April of 2014. We successfully completed re-certification as Ramp Inspection Training Organisation (RITO) according to the new European Regulations with effect to December 9th, 2014.
