To Reduce Aviation Accidents and Save Lives
    The Aviation Safety Program began as the Accident Prevention Program on June 30, 1970. The program introduced the concept of a joint program sponsored by the FAA and the aviation community to reduce the general aviation accident rate. Over the years the program demonstrated that a reduction in the general aviation accident rate could be achieved. The current Aviation Safety Program has expanded to include all facets of aviation.

The purpose of the Aviation Safety Program and this website is to continue reducing aviation accidents through educational and cooperative efforts.

Learning from other's...
   
Alma Crash

One of the primary reasons that I became an Aviation Safety Counselor was from my experience with the Civil Air Patrol and flying Search & Rescue missions. Once I saw first hand the fatal results of flying above Vno in known turbulence, or find a crash victim that survived a crash only to perrish from exposue because no flight plan was filed (or it was cancelled in the air), I decided I was in a unique position to share my experience and offer advice to others though safety education in hopes that it save lives.

You too can learn from others online. An easy way is to visit the NTSB website and review the accident reports. Are you about to start flying, have you moved and are about to start renting a different type of aircraft, or even if you have been flying your regular bird for years. This is an excellent place to lookup and see what problems pilots are having in your aircraft, or in general. It will have an effect on your habits and thoughts on future flights; making you much safer in the skys.
