Content Management and Control
SKYbrary is an electronic repository of safety knowledge related to ATM and aviation safety in general. It is also a portal, a common entry point, that enables users to access the safety data made available on the websites of various aviation organisations - regulators, service providers, industry.
SKYbrary adopts the concept of Media-wiki products - anyone can comment, propose modification to an existing article, suggest a new topic or submit a draft article. However, there is an important difference that distinguishes SKYbrary from other wikies. A robust content management and control process supported by appropriate user rights management ensures the needed quality, credibility and consistency of stored safety data.
More detailed information on content development and quality assurance procedures can be obtained from the dedicated article on Skybrary Content Management.
SKYbrary Value for Group Users
SKYbrary now has Corporate Subscriptions from airlines who want to use SKYbrary highlights to improve awareness of safety issues. For more information, take a look at the article "SKYbrary Corporate Subscription"
SKYbrary in 2013
SKYbrary content development priorities remain, for now, unchanged and have been to focus on:
- Who: Flight Operations
- Where: Globally
- What: Operational Risks
- Aviation sector: Commercial Air Transport
Our Content Development objectives in 2013 are to enhance core subject coverage in the following key risk categories:
- Runway Excursion
- Runway Incursion
- Human Performance
- Accident and Incident Reports
We have already incorporated The FSF Operators Guide to Human Factors in Aviation (OGHFA) into SKYbrary and in 2010 further developments included the incorporation of the CASA "Safety Behaviours - Guide for Pilots" toolkit, and a new Human Performance Portal which includes new articles and links to extensive resources for safety managers. Work on the population of this portal will continue into 2013 and 2014.
Working with the FAA, we are uploading the outputs of the Commercial Aviation Safety Team (CAST) to provide a unique on-line resource of reference material for safety managers.
SKYbrary has been initiated by EUROCONTROL in partnership with the following organisations:
- The Flight Safety Foundation
- The UK Flight Safety Committee
- The European Strategic Safety Initiative and
- International Federation of Airworthiness
The inititive aims at developing a comprehensive source of aviation safety information and making it available to users worldwide.
SKYbrary's Strategic Objective
SKYbrary's objective is to become a single point of reference for aviation safety knowledge by making universally available and accessible the safety knowledge accumulated by various aviation organisations, entities and initiatives. The SKYbrary knowledgebase is a dynamic enterprise and has taken several years to develop. To develop further, and maintain the accuracy and relevance of the knowledgebase, will require the support and active participation of all those interested in promoting best practice and knowledge in aviation safety.
