Adopting a Data-Driven Approach to Business Aviation Safety

June 10, 2019

Every year, NBAA issues an updated list of Top Safety Focus Areas to help promote safety-enhancing initiatives within flight departments and among owner-flown operations. “We try to be data-driven. We can look at things that have happened in business aviation mishaps and incidents and start there,” said Paul Ratte, a long-time NBAA Safety Committee member involved in developing this year’s safety priorities. “We get a room of 50-plus experts in business aviation and get their collective wisdom on what is the real root of risk today and moving forward.”

This week, NBAA Flight Plan host Pete Combs speaks with:

  • Tom Huff, Gulfstream aviation safety officer, NBAA Safety Committee chair
  • Paul Ratte, USAIG director of safety programs, NBAA Safety Committee member
  • Mark Larsen, NBAA senior manager of safety and flight operations
