General Aviation
Joint Steering Committee


The General Aviation Joint Steering Committee (GAJSC) is a public-private partnership working to improve general aviation safety. The GAJSC uses a data-driven, consensus-based approach to analyze aviation safety data and develop risk reduction efforts. The GAJSC’s goal is to reduce the GA fatal accident rate per 100,000 flight hours by 10% from January 1, 2009 to December 31, 2018, with no more than 1 fatal accident per 100,000 flight hours by 2018.

The GAJSC analyzes general aviation (GA) safety data to develop intervention strategies to prevent or mitigate problems associated with accident causes, called Safety Enhancements. Safety Enhancements may include procedures, training, and equipment installations that, when implemented, may reduce the likelihood of accidents in the future.
