Abstract : This two volume report provides a compendium of the existence, availability, limitations, and applicability of aviation accident and incident databases for use in human factors research. An aviation and data processing oriented form was used to survey 41 U.S. Government, military, aircraft manufacturers, airlines, special interest groups, and international aviation safety database sources. The compendium in Volume I presents information about 34 aviation safety databases. Recommendations include a feasibility study of a combined master aviation safety database, the convening of a task force to standardize human factors terminology and data collection, the establishment of a limited immunity program to facilitate the flow of air carrier incident data, and a more vigorous effort to present available aviation safety information to pilots.
