This Air Law Group lecture will precede the annual Air Law Summer Reception.
The lecture will consider the current state of aviation safety and the various mechanisms that help us to achieve superior performance. From the detailed forensic analysis of aircraft accidents to data-hungry techniques such as flight data monitoring, safety management has evolved significantly. However, with the rise of safety management systems, are we at risk of forsaking apparently reactive techniques for a more speculative era of predictive safety? With ever higher stakes, can the industry afford to do anything else?
