The global aviation safety record is the best it has ever been. This achievement has been dependent on the global aviation community's working together in partnership to make a safe air transportation system even safer. The Aviation Safety Forum (world-wide attendance) provided a continued opportunity for government regulators and global aviation leaders to have a focused and provocative exchange of ideas on global safety topics. It provided opportunities to build upon current partnerships and develop new ones.
ATA Co-Sponsors this year's Forum
The Federal Aviation Administration was pleased to have the Air Transport Association (ATA) join them again this year as the co-sponsor of the 2nd Annual FAAInternational Aviation Safety Forum. ATA was the first and remains the only trade organization of the principal airlines in the UnitedStates. It has played a major role in all the major government decisions regarding aviation since it’s founding in 1936.
