EUROCONTROL Safety Alerts are generated to inform aviation professionals of important safety matters that have been identified. There are three types of Safety Alert:

  • Safety Warning Message: RED ALERT - an issue of immediate safety concern.
  • Safety Reminder Message: BLUE ALERT - a known issue which requires renewed awareness, and
  • Request for Support Message BROWN ALERT - an issue for which the community is seeking a solution.
