PARTICIPATION IN MILITARY OR CIVIL AIRCRAFT OR SPACE SAFETY INVESTIGATIONS
|Publication Date:||26 April 2019|
The purpose of this publication is to clarify NTSB, NASA and FAA responsibility or interest in certain mishaps involving military aircraft or space assets.
Because various agencies and departments have differing policies and procedures regarding witnesses, analysis and the release of information, a joint military-civil investigation with shared responsibility is not practical.
This guidance strives to foster cooperation during the investigations of aircraft mishaps involving both civil and military aircraft or space assets, while adhering to the unique requirements of civil and military investigations.
Since the common goal of safety investigations is mishap prevention, cooperation between military and civil agencies is both logical and desirable.
