Langley Research Center

  • Center of Excellence for structures and materials research

  • Atmospheric Sciences

  • Aeronautics

Aviation safety program l.jpg
Aviation Safety Program

Growth in commercial aviation will lead to an increase in major aviation accidents

NASA, the Department of Defense (DOD) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) have partnered to form the Aviation Safety Program

Aviation Safety Program

  • GOAL: Develop and demonstrate technologies that contribute to a reduction in the aviation fatal accident rate by a factor of 5 by year 2007 and by a factor of 10 by year 2022.

  • Strategies

    • System Modeling

    • Accident prevention

    • Accident mitigation

Small Aircraft Transportation System

  • The program consists of developing small, general aviation aircraft for business and personal transportation, for on-demand, point-to-point travel between smaller landing facilities

  • No need for radar and control towers

  • No need for more land around airports
