Notes High Level Of Aviation Safety In Europe
The European Aviation Safety
Agency's 2006 Annual Safety Review highlights the significant
improvements achieved in aviation safety in recent years.
Worldwide, 2006 saw the lowest number of fatal accidents (42) to
fixed wing aircraft in public transportation within the last decade
The Annual Safety Review is compiled by EASA to inform the
public of safety levels in civil aviation. The data used are
provided by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO)
and the Agency’s 31 members, which include the 27 Member
States of the European Union, as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein,
Norway and Switzerland.
In 2006 the number of fatal accidents to fixed wing aircraft in
public transportation in Europe (6) was equal to the average for
the decade, although it has increased since 2004, which was
exceptionally low (2).
While accident rates in Europe are low, the Agency’s
Review indicates that there is still room for improvement.
Efforts to maintain and improve aviation safety continue to be a
priority for EASA. Responding to the need for a coordinated
European effort, the Agency launched in April 2006 the European
Strategic Safety Initiative (ESSI). The objective of ESSI is to
further enhance safety for European citizens, through analysis of
data and coordination with safety initiatives worldwide.
EASA also takes specific actions in response to accident
experience. These include working on the improvement of regulatory
material in its rulemaking activities and improving the operational
system by actions including the issuing of Airworthiness
