  • Airline Safety Review: January-June 2000

    News | 25 Jul 2000 00:00

    <p>Accident data come from <I>Flight International's</I> own research and from Airclaims' <I>World Airline Accident Summary</I> <I>(WAAS)</I>*, a quarterly updated analytical record of accidents and incidents worldwide since 1945. The WAAS, a UK Civil Aviation Authority publication, benefits from Airclaims' exclusive information exchange with the CIS Interstate Aviation Committee Commission for Flight Safety. The WAAS now lists accidents by operator and location, as well as by type of occurrence and aircraft type. </p> <p>Although details of non-fatal incidents are not made officially available by the authorities in many countries, <I>Flight International</I> continues to list as many of these incidents as possible, in the interests of maximising the availability of relevant information. We accept that the non-fatal listing may be unfairly weighted against the airlines of those countries which make safety information more readily available. </p> <p>*Airclaims, Cardinal Point, Newallhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Airline-Safety-Review-January-June-2000-68318/
