Five seconds to impact - UK aviation near miss reporting

The Old Library, Lloyd's
Tuesday, 06 March 2018
1:15 pm – 2:00 pm
    • Air Cdre (Retd) Steve Forward FRAeS FCMI, Director, UK Airprox Board
  • Aviation webinar

In this IIL aviation lecture Steve Forward talked about UK aviation near miss reporting, how Airprox occurrences are near accidents and the role of the UK Airprox Board (UKAB) in investigating these.

Steve explained how UKAB is the UK's focal point for investigating and reporting the circumstances, causes and risk of collision for all Airprox occurrences in UK airspace. Focused purely on enhancing Air Safety through the avoidance of airborne conflict and mid-air collisions, the UKAB provides a mechanism for the feedback and follow-up of Airprox-related insights and recommendations regarding the efficacy of airspace regulation and the factors that have influenced the performance of pilots and controllers.

By the end of this lecture members would have gained an insight into:

  • A brief overview of Airprox reporting
  • Some Airprox statistics and trends
  • Airprox causal themes
  • Airprox Risk & Safety management

Speaker Bio:
Steve is an ex-military fast-jet pilot and senior military commander who spent over 30 years in the RAF. He now runs the combined CAA/MAA team charged with investigating near-mid-air collisions in the UK.
