Podcast: Achieving a Higher Level of Safety

June 28, 2021

The NBAA Safety Committee recently published its 2021-2022 list of the Top Safety Focus Areas for business aviation. This comprehensive look at the factors affecting operational safety is designed to drive safety-enhancing discussions and initiatives within flight departments and owner-flown operations across the industry. “You have to be completely open and honest about your strengths and weaknesses,” said Mike Ott, communications team lead for the NBAA Safety Committee. “These Top Safety Focus Areas give [flight] departments specific areas in which to look, and then give them assistance in developing solutions.”

In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:

  • Mike Ott, NBAA Safety Committee communications team lead, director of government contracting and captain, Phoenix Air
  • Paul “BJ” Ransbury, NBAA Safety Committee vice-chair, CEO of Aviation Performance Solutions
