IAGSA - Safety in the air

Begins on the ground

IAGSA’s Survey Contract Annex

Test Range Calendar



Welcome to IAGSA

The International Airborne Geophysics Safety Association (IAGSA) promotes the safe operation of helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft on airborne geophysical surveys. Member companies conduct low-level survey flights, and are committed to safe aircraft operations. Our association develops recommended practices, serves as a center for exchange of safety information and as a repository for specialized statistics.

The recommended practices developed by IAGSA for the geophysical survey industry are included in a Safety Manual. The Safety Manual is primarily for IAGSA members.

IAGSA also recommends that exploration companies include in their contracts specific safety requirements. A summary of the recommended practices in the Safety Manual are presented in a proposed Contract Annex for Exploration Companies.
