Airplanes. 2017 EASA Annual Safety Review published -SPECIALS by AVIONEWS
Cologne, Germany - The priorities will be presented in the next edition of the European Plan for Aviation Safety to be published in December 2017
EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) publishes today the 2017 edition of its Annual Safety Review. The analysis in this year’s review provides a statistical summary of aviation safety in the EASA Member States and identifies the most important safety challenges faced in European aviation today. This data-driven analysis will lead to the development of safety actions across domain-specific safety risk portfolios and will define the priorities on which the Agency will focus on. These priorities will be presented in the next edition of the European Plan for Aviation Safety to be published in December 2017. During the past year EASA has advanced and developed key strategic activities across a diverse range of new and emerging issues. The Agency has recently published the notice of proposed amendment on the regulato¬ry framework for the operation of drones. With the emergence of new and more sophisticated cyber threats, EASA has commenced the implementation of the European Centre for Cyber Security in Aviation. The Agency continues to work with partners in Europe and at a global level to monitor the threat of conflict zones and pro¬vide rapid advice to civil aviation. The Agency has also further refined the way in which it applies Safety Risk Management principles. In particular, the collaborative analysis groups who bring together expertise from authorities and industry stakeholders have proved to be successful tools in further underpinning a data-driven approach to managing safety. It is possible to see the integral (117 pages) and summary version (28 pages) in the "Specials" section on the left side of the AVIONEWS home-page.
