Over the past 60 years, EUROCAE has witnessed the development of many industry-leading technologies and accompanied the innovation lifecycle  through the timely development of relevant standards. These efforts have helped to ensure that the aviation industry is well-equipped to meet the challenges of the 21st century and beyond. EUROCAE currently has more than 450 members from all over the world, close to 50 active Working Groups, and more than 4.500 experts.

"We are proud to have played a key role in the development of so many technologies that have improved the safety, efficiency and sustainability of aviation throughout these decades and we stand ready to support the aviation community in the future", said EUROCAE Director General, Anna von Groote. “This success was made possible by our members, partners, governing bodies and the great team at the Secretariat.” 

As EUROCAE celebrates its 60th anniversary, the organisation looks forward to continuing to play a vital role in the development and promotion of global standards for civil aviation equipment, and to helping to shape the future of the aviation industry.
