TIN news: The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), in collaboration with partners from the aviation sector, has launched Data4Safety, a new co-operative partnership.
The aviation partners include several national authorities, aircraft manufacturers, airlines and pilot unions.
Initiated by EASA, the Data4Safety programme focuses on changing from the current reactive approach to safety to a proactive approach that analyses trends and situations that can lead to a safety hazard.
As part of the programme, stakeholders within the aviation community will share data, information and knowledge in order to offer safety benefits.
“Data4Safety is a revolutionary project which will enable aviation stakeholders to significantly enhance aviation safety."
EASA executive director Patrick Ky said: “Data4Safety is a revolutionary project which will enable aviation stakeholders to significantly enhance aviation safety and may also be applicable to other means of transportation in the future, in particular rail and maritime.”
The Data4Safety programme will help merge the rising number of data sources available in the European aviation system and deliver a critical mass of data.
The programme will also significantly increase analysis capabilities by enhancing information sharing and using the most advanced data and communication technologies in the fields of big data and data mining.
In addition, the members of the Data4Safety signed a programme charter that establishes the principles of collaboration, voluntariness, confidentiality and just culture.
