The French Institute for Aviation Safety (IFSA), a Défense Conseil International (DCI) training centre, and the State Aviation Safety Authority (DSAÉ) are signing an agreement at the International Paris Air Show to explore leads for improvement in aviation safety training.

IFSA was founded in 1987 and, in 2014, began contributing to the training actions of the DSAÉ for State Bodies employing air assets: Army, Navy, Air Force, DGA, Gendarmerie nationale, Civil Security and Customs.

IFSA thus provides training in Aviation hazards identification and risk management methods for staff and Permanent Aviation Safety Boards of the those Bodies, as part of the DSAÉ training. This partnership between IFSA and DSAÉ reflects the strong, trusting relationship that unites the two entities.

IFSA is a historical player in both civil and military aviation safety training, and its instruction is recognised by major international organisations, including the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), the Flight Safety Foundation (FSF), and the International Society of Air Safety Investigators (ISASI). Thirty experts regularly work for the Institute that has trained 9,000 trainees of 101 nationalities since its creation.
