The bureau was established on March 21, 2012 by the special Cabinet Decree #228[1] according to the provisions of the Aerial Code of Ukraine.

As of April 2012, Oleg Babenko was the Bureau Director[2]

Bureau is headquartered in Kiev at #14 Peremohy Ave. (highrise building of the Ministry of Infrastructure).

History[edit]

The NBAAI had requested that the Dutch Safety Board (DSB) participate in the international investigation of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17; the DSB received formal notice of the accident from the NBAAI on 18 July 2014.[3] The NBAAI delegated the investigation to the DSB because of the large number of Dutch passengers and the fact that the flight originated in Amsterdam.[4]
