An overview of aviation safety programs

When people fly on commercial airlines in New York or across the country, they often assume that the aircraft they are traveling on has been deemed safe and is free from any defects that may put their lives in danger. Yet how exactly are aircrafts proven to be safe and what types of checks and evaluations do they go through to ensure they do not pose a danger to passengers and pilots?

The Federal Aviation Administration has several programs and initiatives in place to protect passengers who fly on commercial aircraft throughout the United States. The Aviation Safety Action Program is just one of these programs with the goal of preventing incidents and accidents. ASAP encourages employees to report certain safety issues and concerns, and the program looks into these concerns and attempts to remedy any problems that may occur in the future.

Another program, the Safety Assurance System, puts standard protocols and policies in place for inspectors to follow when checking aircraft for safety controls. Furthermore, programs and initiatives are in place to ensure compliance, cabin safety, cargo safety, takeoff and landing performance, information systems security and laser safety.

NASA has also partnered with the FAA to reduce the number of fatal aircraft accidents by 80 percent within the next 10 years and by a surprising 90 percent within the next 25 years. The program looks into synthetic vision, as well as how to construct airplane seats and systems to withstand serious accidents. Enhanced equipment monitoring may also alert pilots to a problem before it becomes catastrophic.
