ATSB – Aviation safety trends

The first report by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) of safety trends in Australian aviation reveals that while the nation’s skies remain safe, there are some shifting trends to watch.

Of note in this reporting period was an increase in the rate of airborne collision alert system warnings in high-capacity air transport operations over the past five quarters (since April-June 2013).

Loss of separation incidents involving low capacity air transport also increase in January to June.
