Flight Safety



In the Swiss Air Force, flight safety is a continual process by which the risk of injury and damage to property can be reduced to and maintained at an acceptable level. The Flight Safety Unit supports Air Force Command in their decision-making process.

Air Force Safety Management System

Military aviation safety management includes all organisational measures and processes involved in the management of flight safety risks. In the Swiss Air Force, this is done using the Safety Management System (SMS).
Objective: Guaranteeing the Air Forces' best possible operational readiness and availability in order to maintain maximum efficiency.
