By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: From September 8 to 9, 2022,  the 244th meeting of the Central American Corporation of Aero Navigation Services (COCESNA) Regional Board of Directors met in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye.

The Ministry of Blue Economy and Civil Aviation noted that the meeting provided the opportunity for the official approval of a new, top-of-the-line $8-million primary radar for Belize. 

“This primary radar will be an upgrade to the secondary radar that is presently operational. It will have the capacity to improve aviation safety in Belize and provide meteorological data and maritime surveillance. The radar will also be able to detect non-cooperating aircraft and assist in the fight against narco-trafficking in Belize and the region,” the ministry noted.

During his remarks, Andre Perez, Minister of Blue Economy and Civil Aviation, said, “Belize is poised in a highly favorable position at this time. We are assuming our rightful place around the table and taking a leadership role in the decisions that impact our country and our region.”

All Central American member countries attended the high-level meeting, which saw the approval of technical support contingent on Belize as it prepares for its second audit by the International Civil Aviation Organization in 2023.

The next meeting of the COCESNA Board is scheduled to be held in Montreal, Canada, during the 41st International Civil Aviation Organization General Assembly, which will be held from September 27 to October 7, 2022.
