NBAA Safety Survey

The 2020 NBAA Safety Survey was developed to assess the perceptions, experiences, work practices and opinions regarding business aviation safety. The survey’s results will guide priorities and projects for NBAA committees and will be made available to the business aviation community. The survey is, by design, not superficial. An in-depth biannual safety survey yields statistically stronger results and enables a more comprehensive analysis than smaller surveys.

The survey should take 15 to 20 minutes to complete. Some questions are easy to answer, while others may require deeper thought and reflection. NBAA requests that participants answer all 38 questions. Partial surveys not only reduce the breadth of information collected but also complicate reporting results.

A note about COVID-19: This survey was developed before the Coronavirus pandemic swept the globe and does not include questions specifically on this topic. NBAA recognizes the attention now focused on the global health threat could overshadow, dilute or divert attention from other business aviation safety issues. Please maintain a broad view as you complete this survey and resist letting the current pandemic situation impact your ability to respond with a clear mind on the issues that are this survey’s focus – the persistent safety concerns confronted and managed both before and after the COVID-19 pandemic. There is an opportunity at the end of the survey to make free-form comments on any safety-related topics you wish.

The deadline to participate in the 2020 NBAA Safety Survey is Sept. 21, 2020.
