Safety Standards

Iceland Aviation Academy strives to uphold the highest safety standards possible at all times. All persons involved in the operation are to be made aware of all applicable legislation and trained as far as practicable to meet applicable standards and best practices in order to achieve highest safety standards.

Iceland Aviation Academy commitment to safety lends appropriate resources to upholding safety as a primary concern through all branches of operation. All managers, administrators, staff and students are responsible for maintaining high standard of safety and to report and/or act as required in the interest of safety.

Iceland Aviation Academy upholds a just culture with regards to safety and reporting.

"Just Culture" is a culture in which front-line operators and others are not punished for actions, omissions or decisions taken by them which are commensurate with their experience and training, but where gross negligence, wilful violations and destructive acts are not tolerated.

All levels of management and employees are accountable for delivering the highest level of safety. All flight department personnel are committed to:

  • Safety management by use of all appropriate resources that will result in an organizational culture which fosters safe practices and will encourage effective safety reporting through all levels of communication.
  • Ensure that safety management is a primary responsibility of all postholders and their employees;
  • Clearly define to all personnel that they are accountable and responsible for the safety management of the organization and the enactment of our safety management system;
  • Establish and operate hazard identification as well as risk management processes which including a hazard reporting system in order to eliminate or mitigate the safety risks and hazards resulting from our operations.
  • Ensure that no action will be taken against any employee or student who discloses a safety concern through the hazard reporting system unless such disclosure indicates beyond any reasonable doubt that gross negligence or a deliberate and wilful disregard of regulations or procedures has occurred.
  • Comply with and wherever possible exceed legislative regulatory requirements and standards.
  • Ensure that sufficient trained human resources are available to implement safety strategies and processes.
  • Ensure that all personnel are provided with adequate and appropriate aviation safety information and training and are competent in safety matters. Flight department personnel should only be allocated tasks that commensurate with their skill level.
  • Establish and measure our safety performance in perspective of realistic safety performance indicators as well as safety performance targets.
  • Continually improve our safety performance through continuous monitoring and measurement. Perform regular reviews and adjust the safety objectives as needed.
