The Defence Aviation Safety Authority

In accordance with Joint Directive 24/2016 The Defence Aviation Safety Framework PDF-237KB, the Defence Aviation Safety Authority (DASA) is responsible for enhancing and promoting the safety of military aviation. This objective is primarily achieved through implementation of a Defence Aviation Safety Program (DASP) that supports compliance with statutory safety obligations and assures the effective management of aviation safety risks. The DASA comprises three organisational entities that operate collectively to administer and execute the DASP on behalf of the Defence Aviation Authority (Defence AA).
