Safety

Air transport is one of the safest modes of travel and the work that ERA does on safety aims to further it more. Safety issues are addressed by the ERA Air Safety Group and involves working on subjects such as advocating a non-punitive reporting culture, assisting members to implement a Safety Management System (SMS), inputting into Eurocontrol's European Action Plan for the Prevention of Runway Excursions and providing a confidential safety forum where safety incidents can be discussed in order to share lessons learned and produce best practice.

The ERA Directorate works closely with the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and has several member representatives on their safety groups such as the European Commercial Aviation Safety Team (ECAST) and SAFA forums.
