Commission zeroes in on military aviation safety

Army aviation safety and readiness were the focus of a round table discussion Aug. 27 between Redstone Arsenal aviation leaders and members of a national commission charged with reviewing the effects of 17 years of war on the military aviation fleet.

Members of the National Commission on Military Aviation Safety participated in the discussion, which took place at Army Materiel Command headquarters and included a safety briefing by Aviation and Missile Command leaders. The two-day, fact-gathering visit also included in-depth focus group discussions with leaders at AMCOM, the Futures Command’s Combat Capabilities Development Command Aviation Engineering Directorate and the Program Executive Office for Aviation.
