Programme: Flight Safety and Security

Programme Description

Safety and Security are important components for the sustainability of air transport systems. Safety means the best performance of the aircraft and human resources engaged as well as of the facilities utilized. Safety and Security group is focused: on the pilot’s psychophysiological behaviour study and its impact on own performance and on flight safety; and on the relation between the existing emergency protocols and the air transport constrains for passengers with reduced mobility.
