ESASI 2019 Workshop Report – Safety investigation throughout the Aircraft Life Cycle

IFA Comment: This report on productive workshops contains good general continued airworthiness reference.

An aviation safety investigation is a multi-faceted activity conducted in a media-hungry environment where the public expect openness and the timely release of information. As aircraft become increasingly complex there is a greater need to form multi-disciplinary groups of investigators who will need to work closely with the operator, manufacturers, technical advisers and regulatory authorities. However, there can be conflicting priorities between the various parties and tension between the need to identify the cause of the accident and the continued airworthiness of the fleet. The European Society of Air Safety Investigators (ESASI) workshop ‘Safety investigations throughout the aircraft life cycle – design for safety’ was intended to address these issues and provide the wider aviation safety community with a considered view of some of the underlying issues and possible ways that they might be addressed. The intention is to distribute the proceedings from this workshop as widely as possible. This was the first workshop which ESASI has run and was supported not only by delegates from within Europe, but also from Brazil, Saudi Arabia, Singapore and the United States. It was also pleasing to see that the delegates represented the full spectrum of the aviation industry.
