Ensuring that safety standards are developed on the basis of a risk-based and data driven assessment, scientific research and operational expertise

Flying is one of the safest – if not the safest, way to travel. A4E members work closely with the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs), airports and other organisations to maintain safety levels now and in the future.
A4E supports improved application of EASA’s New Basic Regulation, calling for performance-based regulations, the coherent application thereof, as well as the introduction of a risk-based approach. In this sense we are also monitoring the integration of new airspace users, such as drones, into the existing airspace infrastructure.
