Incident Reporting System in the Airline Business

ByFarrukh Khan

Aviation safety is important for airlines because accidents can be expensive and can cause major operational upsets as well as raising questions about the image of an airline in the minds of the passengers, who generate an income for the airline. Hence, there is a need for an incident reporting system that will log safety related reports and issues which can be analysed in order to generate information which will be of use in preventing accidents or safety threats in airline operations. Because safety in airline operations is important, therefore such a system must have the support of the highest levels of management. Most airlines do have a safety related incident logging system and in the United States of America, the Federal Aviation Authority or the FAA also maintains such a system. This brief essay takes a look at the architectures and analysis techniques for airline safety incident logging systems.
