As the Chairman and CEO of the Flight Safety Foundation, Bill Voss, has gained invaluable insights and articulated important ways to improve aviation safety. In a wide-ranging speech at EBACE, Captain Voss made several important comments.
Relevant to business aviation, the subject of this convention, he focused on business aviation runway excursions. His remarks seem to be based on the safety data rich environment of the air carrier community citing unstable approaches and the possible complications of airspace design and related ATC issues. That data, most likely, comes from ASAP, and the solutions were probably developed by the Commercial Aviation Safety Team (CAST).
As noted before (New Approach for GA Safety Needs to be Taken), the next step up the safety ladder for the business aviation and general aviation community is to replicate and adopt the processes and framework of CAST, which we previously named the General Aviation Safety Team (GAST).Share this article:
