Risk Factor Identification and Classification of Flight Safety Based on Fault Tree Approach


Article Preview

Flight safety is the basis of the Air Force combat effectiveness. We propose a fault tree approach to qualitatively identify risk factors that affect flight safety. Risk factor identification index system of flight safety is established, and the risk coefficient method is developed to identify the risk factors quantitatively. We finally study an example of a Military Region, the risk factors of which are from different sources, and establish the classification system. The results can provide an objective basis for headquarters offices and flight safety management department policy formulation, which can lay the foundation for further development of flight safety risk assessment.
