The European General Aviation Safety Team (EGAST)
The European General aviation Safety Team (EGAST) is the third pillar of ESSI, launched on 17 October 2007. It addresses safety in general aviation operations.
In Europe, as in other regions of the world, General Aviation is a dispersed community. Air sports and recreational aviation embrace a wide spectrum of airborne activities, ranging from powered flying, ballooning and gliding to newly-invented activities such as sky-surfing, micro light flying and paragliding.
EGAST will take into account the new regulatory materials developed by EASA for general aviation. Getting general aviation safety data and participation from the general aviation community is a challenge. EGAST will build on the national general aviation initiatives in Europe and create a forum for sharing safety data and best practices in Europe.
