Industry Issues

Safety and Certification

Global aviation, particularly in the United States, is remarkably safe. Safety is the primary driver for our manufacturers and we are always seeking to support improvements, as providing confidence in the system is critical to our success.

Our members do this through design revisions, testing, maintenance, training and data analysis by stakeholders across the aviation community. AIA coordinates matters and priorities concerning the civil aviation airworthiness and certification regulatory framework and industry-wide civil aviation safety issues. We also work with international partners, to facilitate safe and effective standards on a worldwide basis.
