  • Be the constant and forceful “Just Culture” advocate for all global aviation community members.
  • Provide opportunities for the members of the global community to come together, interact and learn from each other.
  • Represent the global aviation community on safety matters with news media, industry and government groups and the general public.

The Foundation is affiliated to FSF International(FSFI), FSF-West Africa, FSF-Taiwan and FSF, South East Europe-Middle East-Cyprus.
