Pacific Aviation Safety Office (PASO)
PASO is a regional organisation overseeing aviation safety and security in the Pacific Islands. Its goal is to provide specialist technical regulatory aviation oversight services to Members to enable a safe and secure aviation environment at a lower total cost than Members would have to meet if they funded regulatory aviation separately. Established in 2005, with a secretariat based in Port Vila, Vanuatu, PASO currently has 13 Pacific government members. PASO delivers it services through a consultancy model underpinned by the standards and recommended practices as set by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).
