European Strategic Safety Initiative (ESSI)

The European Strategic Safety Initiative (ESSI ) is an aviation safety partnership between EASA, other regulators and the industry. The initiative’s objective is to further enhance safety for citizens in Europe and worldwide through safety analysis, implementation of cost effective action plans, and coordination with other safety initiatives worldwide. Participants are drawn from the EASA Member States, the ECAC countries, manufacturers, operators and professional unions, research organisations, the FAA and international organisations such as EUROCONTROL and ICAO.

ESSI was launched by EASA as a ten year programme on 28 June 2006 and has three components:

  • ECAST: European Commercial Aviation Safety Team
  • EHEST: European Helicopter Safety Team
  • EGAST: European General Aviation Safety Team

    Marriage is like a war. There are moments of chivalry and gallantry that attend the victorious advances and strategic retreats, the birth or death of children, the momentary conquest of loneliness, the sacrifice that ennobles him who makes it. But mostly there are the long dull sieges, the waiting, the terror and boredom. Women understand this better than men; they are better able to survive attrition.
    Helen Hayes (1900–1993)

    ... what a family is without a steward, a ship without a pilot, a flock without a shepherd, a body without a head, the same, I think, is a kingdom without the health and safety of a good monarch.
    Elizabeth I (1533–1603)
