What does it cost to attend?  Meetings are free to attend for any representative from an ERA member company.

What did the group achieve in 2018? The Air Safety Group co-ordinated briefings on numerous safety issues including pilot peer support, safety culture, mental health and wellbeing, safety manager competencies, drug and alcohol policy and Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems.
