Safety Engineering for Piloted Aircraft 640598

Safety engineering in the aerospace industry is a management tool for the prevention of aircraft accidents. Industry’s prevention programs are based upon the need to conserve life, material, and financial resources. Established safety design requirements, including consideration of the man-machine relationship and the true operational environment, must be followed from concept to obsolescence. Flying can be made the safest form of transportation and military mission success can be improved through (1) improved investigation techniques, (2) better safety education programs, (3) thorough design analysis for hazard elimination, (4) realistic environmental testing, and (5) management’s willingness to accept responsibility for safe design.
