Leadership Survey Reveals the Year's Top Business Aviation Safety Concerns
Nov. 9, 2015
The NBAA Safety Committee's Risk Assessment Team this year transformed its annual Top Safety Focus Areas into data-driven project by launching the first-ever Business Aviation Leadership Safety Survey. Intended to be an annual exercise, the 2015 survey targeted a diverse group of business aviation leaders to gather their opinions on safety practices, perceptions and concerns. NBAA found that while 81 percent of respondents rated the safety culture in their flight organizations to be excellent or very good, they also identified several top areas of concern for business aviation safety, including fatigue and approach-and-landing risks. The 2016 survey will be launched later this month, but in the meantime, operators can review a report on the 2015 survey results.
