ABSTRACT

The accident rate for aircraft is very low compared to other transportation modes, but in the event of an accident during the flight, there is a high risk of falling. In addition, it is very difficult to prove the cause of the accident because it consists of many parts. Therefore, aviation accident investigation should be objective and fair in order to identify risk factors, evaluate risk levels, and offer a safety message to those involved in the accidents. The organization of aviation accident investigation sought independence from an international perspective to enhance its professionalism in terms of organization and function for aviation safety. Therefore, the Presidential Committee for National Aviation and Railway Safety needs to be established to strengthen the independence of the Aviation and Railway Accident Investigation Board in South Korea so that it can perform independent investigation in terms of composition and function, such as budget, personnel, and so on.
