Why Join FSF?
Flight Safety Foundation — changing the conversation about safety for over 65 years
Its more important than ever to join the Flight Safety Foundation. During the next few months, we're going to continue tackling some of the biggest safety issues facing the aviation industry, and we need your help.

Minimizing Unstable Approaches and Ensuring Safe Go-Arounds
For several decades now, the highest percentage of events and accidents occurs on approach and landing. The past three accidents in the United States have been approach-and-landing events, and 46 percent of the 250 fatal accidents worldwide between 2002 and 2011 occurred during approach, landing or go around.
We produced our Approach and Landing Accident Reduction tool kit in 1998 and distributed more than 40,000 copies worldwide. And we started a project on go-arounds in 2012 that’s due to be completed this spring. We need to continue our work in this area. Join us and help.
Enabling Data Sharing and Maximizing Data Protection
Through data sharing, we can collect evidence of small problems across the industry, identify the risk and work to develop solutions – before accidents occur. Data sharing in the United States is advanced, and we need to continue our work to spread the practice around the world through collaboration with MITRE, ICAO and IATA. Join us and help.
As a co-chair of the ICAO Task Force on Safety Information Protection, we’ll continue to lead the charge to protect safety data and ensure it cannot be used in a punitive fashion. No one should be punished for cooperating with a safety investigation unless gross negligence was involved. Our Legal Advisory Committee will work to develop model legislation that can be adapted throughout the world to protect safety information. Join us and help.
Advancing Safety in Challenging Operations
We developed the Basic Aviation Risk Standard (BARS) because the mining and resource sector faces enormous challenges, often operating in parts of the world without a rigorous regulatory framework. Audits of these operations are costly and necessary, but a single BARS audit can be used by multiple BARS members, allowing the operator to focus less time on completing multiple, redundant audits and more time on safe operations.
Knowledge gleaned from BARS audits – especially for aviation in remote areas – is already benefitting a much wider community of fixed- and rotary-wing operators. Join us and help spread these audits even further.
Membership in Flight Safety Foundation is your visible commitment to the aviation community’s core value – a strong effective global safety culture. Join us and be a part of the dialogue. Join the Foundation today.
