Development of a Model Aviation Safety Program for General Aviation



In relation to research methodology, a qualitative research approach has been considered in this study. Moreover, questionnaire surveys have been conducted for both the service providers as well as the customers of the aviation industry. The sample size was considered to be 100 for the customers and 50 for the service providers. Additionally, both primary sources (in the form of questionnaires) and secondary sources (in the form of literature review) have been taken into concern for this study. Introduction The introduction and the subsequent development of aviation safety programs has eventually emerged as one of the topmost concerns for the general aviation companies due to an increased rate of airline accidents or fatalities in the global arena. In relation to aviation safety, the two priority areas, which include the human factors and the impact of technological factors, are often observed as the most prominent causes for airline fatalities. With respect to the manual causing factors, it has been viewed that the errors which are often caused manually by the humans ultimately lead towards serious safety issues. Conversely, with regard to technology factors, it has been apparently observed that when the technology relating to aviation segment fails to perform its functions, it also increases the degree of risks concerning the security (Aviation Safety Corps, n.d.). After acquiring a brief idea concerning the different facets of the identified research issue, it can be stated that the study mainly deals with qualitative factors such as the experiences of the service providers and the conception of the consumers regarding the development of model aviation safety related programs. Consequently, a qualitative approach of research methodology has been implemented in this study in order to gain a better knowledge regarding the necessity of introducing as well as developing aviation safety programs for the general aviation companies. With regard to research design, suitable as well as important data has been collected from conducting surveys in the form of questionnaires as a primary source. The questionnaires have been designed taking into account the service providers of the aviation companies and also the customers as the respondents. Apart from the primary source, the secondary source as a form of literature review has also been used in this study. The sample size was considered to be 100 for the customers and 50 for service providers. A descriptive analysis approach has been used in the study by evaluating the secondary sources in accordance with the primary data obtained. According to the data, the importance of introducing as well as developing model aviation safety related programs for the general aviation companies have been obtained. Project Literature Review According to the report published by the International Civil Aviation Organization (2011), it has been viewed that the numbers of airline accidents have increased substantially in the current years. This is fundamentally owing to the increased technological and human errors in preserving aviation safety. Consequently, the general aviation companies have been focussed upon the implementation and the advancement of different safety initiatives with the intention of reducing the accidents by a greater extent as well
