Flight safety systems in the Aviation industry in Kenya
lCAO offer guiding standards and recommended practices to all the member states alongside which the countries are required to domesticate and legislate their laws that govern their international flights, needless to say, the aviation authorities in Africa have had none or in some cases inadequate regulations to aid in regulating the industry. Further, in some cases, where the regulations are available, adequate flight safety oversight personnel training seems to lack and remunerations may not attract nor retain qualified personnel. The developed world have time in memorial developed in mining, railway, and manufacturing industries procedures to reduce if not eliminate cases of injury or fatalities at work place through establishment of laws, reglllations and creation of safety cultures training and continued skill reinforcement. The study is undertaken in the aviation industry in Kenya it will focuses on flight operators and Kenya's aviation reglllatory body (KCAA). This will cover all operations related to safety in established aerodromes in Kenya and the safety systems they have in place to safeguard flight safety. The study is able to provide the manageinent of the KCAA and airline companies with current situation analysis on which to base flight safety management systems decisions in order to reduce loss to life and property and hence improving the overall performance of their companies. At the national level, the study adds to the existing literature on the subject, in terms of flight safety systems, by acting as a point of reference to other researchers. The study is also useful in the development of policies flight safety management systems of air transport in Kenya. Further, this study stimulates further research in the field of wider flight safety management of air transport industry in Africa.
