Special Issue "Aviation Safety"
A special issue of Safety (ISSN 2313-576X).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2017).
Dear Colleagues,Over the past decade, five major themes have dominated the conversations across the global aviation industry: (a) personnel supply/demand; (b) personnel fatigue and duty-time regulations; (c) organizational safety culture; (d) effectiveness of programs such as the safety management system; and (e) the impact of unmanned aerial vehicles on the overall safety of the air transport industry. In this Special Issue on “Aviation Safety”, you are invited to submit the following four types of articles:
- Analysis of safety strategies: Examples include human performance (training); technology performance (reliability); regulation (standardization); transparency (availability of safety reports/data); and accountability (compliance).
- Effectiveness of safety interventions: Examples include crew/maintenance resource management programs; non-punitive error reporting systems; safety management systems; and fatigue risk management programs.
- Globalization: Examples include ICAO’s role in enhancing aviation safety (public policy); universalization of professional credentials like MPL (harmonization); cross-cultural challenges (language, technology standards, and national cultural norms); and impact of BREXIT (de-coupling of regulatory infrastructures).
- Complexity: Examples include the entry of non-traditional entities in commercial aviation (introduction of UAS in traditional air space by operators like Amazon Prime Air); off-shore maintenance; and introduction of new hazards like cell phones and onboard electronic devices.
