The January/February 2016 issue of FAA Safety Briefing focuses on the FAA’s new Compliance Philosophy and what its foundational concepts mean to the general aviation community.

Feature articles include:

  • How do You do Safety? – Developing Sound Risk-Based Decision Making Practices in Aviation (p 10),
  • In Data We Trust: Does Flight Data Monitoring Hold the Key to Improving GA Safety? (p 18),
  • Compliance Philosophy with General Aviation – FAA’s Evolving Culture on Aviation Safety (p. 23)
