IATA Annual General Meeting

Point of Reference for US Aviation Safety

Our focus is primarily aviation safety in the United States. The challenges which the FAA and NTSB face tend to be a recurrent theme; thus, it is useful to do a status check by examining what the world is doing to improve aviation safety around the globe. The Annual General Meeting of IATA, held in Cancun, includes a briefing by Gilberto Lopez Meyer Senior Vice President, Safety and Flight Operations and the presentation sets some reference points with which to compare the US aviation status:

Priorities which the FAA and NTSB highlight, too.

Drones are on the global list, too. Lithium Ion Batteries = dangerous goods?

Drones: the world is about the same place as the FAA, right? 

As an industry, aviation tends to be highly critical of its self and that is a good thing— it reflects an all-consuming, omnipresent, 24/7/365 commitment to improving. These IATA slides should confirm that the US is headed in the right direction and may well be ahead of the rest of the world. Not a reason to relax, but added impetus to stay ahead.
