Survey Data to Drive Association’s 2018 Top Safety Focus Areas

Nov. 13, 2017

NBAA’s Safety Committee has launched its annual Business Aviation Safety Survey, a wide-ranging look at the safety culture within business aviation. The committee encourages business aviation professionals of all roles and responsibilities – as well as non-aviation professionals who frequently interact with business aircraft – to provide their feedback, which will guide the committee’s work throughout the next year.

“The business aviation community’s valuable input allows the Safety Committee to identify the challenges facing the industry and subsequently develop meaningful tools and solutions,” said Chairman David Ryan. “As the committee continues to use a data-driven approach, the survey results will again be a primary data group used to develop items such as the association’s Top Safety Focus Areas.”

This year’s survey has been developed to be more thorough and user-friendly than ever before. Participants will receive different questions specifically relevant to their self-identified role within or in association with the industry. The survey is completely anonymous, so it will not collect or store personal data.

NBAA’s Senior Manager of Safety and Flight Operations Mark Larsen, CAM, encourages all members of the business aviation community to participate, noting that every response helps give the committee a clearer picture of where the industry is excelling with regard to safety culture, and where more can be done.

“Our industry has never been safer, but there are always areas needing improvement,” said Larsen. “The invaluable feedback provided by members of the community gives us the data to address these challenges and continue making business aviation a global leader in safety practices.”
