Better Together Industry Resources Help Improve Aviation Safety

Multiple aviation entities provide safety programs for you.

Aviation operators, without losses of course, have a much better negotiating position for coverage terms and conditions in the present insurance market. Combined with inflationary pressures and lingering supply chain disruptions that are impacting aircraft repair costs in a dramatic way, now is the time when aviation risk management techniques are worth brushing up.

Fortunately for the aerospace sector, many industry associations include safety as a cornerstone of their founding and make safety awareness and risk management tools readily available, often with the click of a button.

The National Business Aviation Association’s (NBAA) Safety Committee periodically identifies the business aviation industry’s top safety focus areas. Currently, the list includes:

  • Runway excursions
  • In-flight loss of control
  • Controlled flight into terrain
  • Ground operations accidents

The NBAA has published numerous articles and online resources designed to mitigate these very risks.

The National Air Transportation Association (NATA), representing business aviation service providers, has an entire safety program designed to help train service personnel on operational best practices for fueling, moving, maintaining, and storing aircraft in a safe and secure manner.

The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) houses the Air Safety Institute for general aviation flyers. This body provides an enormous number of safety-themed resources from webinars to accident analysis.

There are numerous other aviation groups that provide even more focused safety and risk management resources, such as type-specific aircraft owners associations.

Membership to these organizations often pay for themselves in some respects by virtue of immersing the aviation operator into another sphere of influence that actively promotes safety best practices, providing exposure to lessons learned without having to learn those lessons the harder, and usually much more expensive, way.
