Basic Aviation Risk Standard
The Flight Safety Foundation has identified an opportunity to standardize the manner in which independent safety audits are conducted, using a risk-based standard that will allow a more rigorous approach to flight safety assurance supporting the resources sector. With the encouragement of many members of the resource community, including aircraft operators, Flight Safety Foundation now offers this unified standard, accompanied by a plan for its installation and maintenance, in an easy-to-use document.
