Defence Aviation Safety Management

In addition to creating favourable conditions for ensuring the necessary operational capability, the MAA is also responsible for safety oversight (“policy”).


What we do:

  • Safety Risk Management (SRM) is a management tool used by the MAA to ensure a consistently high standard of safety in the operational and technical areas of military aviation.
  • The Safety Management of the MAA directs, coordinates and facilitates the activities of the MAA in relation to safety. It defines the processes, tasks, and the existing instruments and bodies within the supervisory authority. In addition, the Safety Management runs and maintains the
    Safety Management System (SMS) of the MAA.
  • The DASIB is part of the MAA’s Flight Safety Division and is administratively attached to the MAA. In the exercise of its professional activities, in particular in the context of investigations, it guarantees its independence by reporting directly to the Head of the Federal Department of Defence, Civil Protection and Sport. Its investigations are conducted
    on the basis of ICAO Annex 13 and the standards of international military investigation authorities.
  • Safety investigations aim to improve the safety of the military aviation and to prevent accidents and incidents. However the DASIB is not responsible for assessing civil or criminal liability issues.
