FAA Previews Flight Risk Assessment Tool Application’s Release

The Federal Aviation Administration plans to release its own flight risk assessment tool application in the future as part of a broader campaign to educate the general aviation community on flight safety practices.

The FAA said Tuesday its FRAT works to assess risk factors such as type of operation, environment, aircraft, crew training and overall operating experience in order to categorize a flight’s safety level.

“The FAA and industry are working together to prevent [loss of control] accidents and save lives,” said FAA Administrator Michael Huerta.

“You can help make a difference by joining our Fly Safe campaign,” Huerta added.

He said the FAA website provides an LOC service each month to pilots in an effort to help reduce risks.

The tool is currently available via automated spreadsheets that run on Microsoft Windows and Apple operating systems and as an application for mobile device.
