NATCA Joins the Flight Safety Foundation
Friday, August 30, 2013

The Flight Safety Foundation (FSF) is an international, non-profit organization started in 1947 to provide safety information to the aviation industry. NATCA recently joined FSF and is excited to extend FSF membership to our own members.

"NATCA is always looking for opportunities to strengthen our working relationships with others in aviation industry groups," explained NATCA National Safety Committee Chairman Steve Hansen. "We felt that becoming a member of FSF was a natural fit."

FSF prides itself on providing impartial, independent and expert safety guidance and resources to the aviation industry and its members. Currently, there are over 1,000 organizations worldwide that belong to FSF, including air carriers, educational institutions, business aviation, manufacturers and airports.

In the future, NATCA will collaborate with FSF on a variety of projects. Some of these include general aviation safety articles, panel participation at conferences, runway safety issues and missed approach guidelines.

"We are hoping that our involvement with FSF will not only expand the learning opportunities for our members, but also allow us an avenue to provide our expertise and assist in resolving international safety issue," said Hansen.

Members have access to many features and resources on the FSF website. Research studies, white papers, past articles and their monthly journal, AeroSafety World, can all be found on their website. In addition, FSF hosts a variety of aviation safety summits and seminars every year.

"We view this as an amazing opportunity to work with various aviation industry safety professionals from around the world," said Hansen.
