Flight Safety Foundation Expands Resources with New Website

Oct. 26, 2016
New Era in Safety Calls for Constant Information-Sharing to Handle Unprecedented Growth in Aviation Globally.

ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- Aviation safety today is undergoing a worldwide revolution in thinking and practice. With 90,000 commercial flights every day plus thousands of business aviation trips, officials are expanding beyond reactive efforts to predictive processes that can minimize future incidents. That's why Flight Safety Foundation has launched a new, improved website that provides an unequalled repository of trustworthy information and other resources. This state-of-the-art, mobile-responsive website lets aviation industry members access and apply the world's most comprehensive, up-to-date safety data and analysis from any device, anywhere.

"All aviation stakeholders today need to be on constant guard against complacency by identifying and correlating small anomalies that can ultimately cause problems. Flight Safety Foundation is proud to be the industry's source for unparalleled safety collaboration, insight and events," said FSF President and CEO Jon Beatty. "I'm confident that the Foundation's new website will provide our global membership the additional resources and in-depth information they need to continue improving commercial and business aviation safety in an era of unprecedented growth."

As aviation safety continues to evolve from reactive to proactive, FSF members will gain more insight through expanded online offerings, including curated external content and the Foundation's AeroSafety World magazine, in a new digital-first format for maximum flexibility. Members will also be able to track the progress of the Foundation's Global Safety Information Project (GSIP), which seeks ways to more effectively harness and share aviation safety data across commercial carriers, corporate operators, manufacturers and regulatory entities, as well as the Basic Aviation Risk Standard (BARS) program, which was developed to meet an identified need for a common global aviation safety assessment and audit protocol for operators flying into some of the world's harshest environments.

"Safety concerns everyone on the planet," said Beatty. "When it comes to ensuring the well-being of people, cargo and aircraft, we can no longer think in terms of boundaries. What happens on a remote airfield in a developing nation can be pertinent to a carrier in North America or Europe."

Moreover, FSF members will be able to interact via an exclusive online community designed to facilitate additional discussion of key safety initiatives. And in the near future, the new website will be enhanced further through the addition of committee forums and an AeroSafety World mobile app.
