Business Aviation Safety Summit

The Business Aviation Safety Summit (BASS), formerly known as the Corporate Aviation Safety Seminar, is the premier annual forum for the discussion and exchange of safety information for business aviation operators. Founded by Flight Safety Foundation (FSF) in 1955 and co-sponsored by NBAA since 1998, the 59th Annual Business Aviation Safety Summit will be held on April 16 and 17, 2014, in San Diego, CA.

Additionally, an open-invitation Safety Roundtable will take place just prior to this year's BASS.

About the Business Aviation Safety Summit

At this annual forum, operators meet with industry leaders, government officials and university researchers for a comprehensive review of business aviation safety issues. Participants find the right blend of technical presentations, informal discussion, personal interaction and exhibits.

  • Influencing safety attitudes and decisions
  • Helicopter safety issues
  • Maintenance issues
  • Corporate FOQA data sharing
  • Legal and regulatory issues
  • RNP and PBN integration
  • Post-accident considerations
  • Innovative safety programs in use
  • Safety leadership
  • Training
  • Go-around decision making
  • Fatigue management in practice
  • Flight risk-assessment tools
  • Aeromedical issues
  • Cabin-safety issues
