Aviation systems require intense and rigorous safety regulations to reduce the risks involved with operating an aircraft.
The area of aviation safety includes the investigation of aircrafts, flight conditions, flight theory, regulation and prevention practices.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), U.S. Department of Transportation and even the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) of the United Nations have all weighed in to expedite aviation safety.
A crucial aspect of improving safety capabilities is enhancing expertise. The needs in this area have been clearly shown through measurement and assessment of the implementation of safety systems, both in safety management and in safety regulation.
Generally, training requirements exist at two levels:
- Generic training in safety concepts and processes, such as safety management systems, risk assessment, safety reporting and safety culture.
- Specific training to support compliance with legal and regulatory rules, such as ICAO Standards, FAA regulations and directives, and certification requirements and specifications.
In the case of training to support compliance with legal and regulatory rules, it is often the case that certain safety-related aviation tasks cannot be legally performed unless the relevant safety training has been undertaken with successful results.
This is certainly true of all aspects of aircraft maintenance, training for flight crew and air traffic control, and many other aspects of aircraft and aerodrome operations.
While aviation accidents continue to horrify till this day, safety has been the highest priority for the aviation industry over the past 100 years. Technology, training and risk management have together resulted in laudable improvements.
