Strengthening Air Safety – The Defence Aviation Environment Conference 2019
On the 28th October 2009 Sir Charles Haddon-Cave published The Nimrod Review. His report into the 2006 accident over Afghanistan, which claimed the lives of 14 service personnel, was a wake up call to the UK MoD. His summary, that the accident was due to ‘a failure of leadership, culture and priorities’ within the department, was a hard hitting message that has led to fundamental changes in the way the MoD manages air safety.
To mark the 10th anniversary of The Nimrod Review, the Military Aviation Authority hosted a conference to assess advancements in air safety and the future challenges that lie ahead.
IFA Comment from Steve Swift: Haddon-Cave’s review is a significant landmark in airworthiness history. His report is terrific.
