SKYbrary is a wiki established by the European Organization for the Safety of Air Navigation, International Civil Aviation Organization, the Flight Safety Foundation and other partner organizations to create a comprehensive source of aviation safety information freely available online.
SKYbrary adopts the general concept of Media-wiki products — anyone can comment, propose modification to an existing article, suggest a new topic or submit a draft article – to capture authoritative aviation industry information and to establish a free global knowledgebase regarding critical aviation safety issues. However, there is an important difference that distinguishes SKYbrary from other wikies –
Its robust content management and control process ensures the needed quality, reliability and consistency of stored safety data.
SKYbrary is also a portal, or common entry point, that enables users to access the safety data made available on the websites of various aviation organizations including associations (like IAFTP), regulators, service providers, and the aviation industry in general.
Announced in February of 2011, the IAFTP Pilot Training Best Practices Portal on SKYbrary will provide free access for all to pilot training practices that have been collected from around the world and peer-reviewed by pilot training professionals.
As William R. Voss, President and CEO of Flight Safety Foundation, recently said:
“Having been involved in its creation, I can say without reservation that [SKYbrary] is an unparalleled tool in the world of aviation safety.”
