Abstract : The conference was organized to examine the accident record of general aviation aircraft, and to explore possible approaches to its improvement. Current research and development efforts in the areas of airworthiness and crashworthiness were discussed along with the cost and regulatory implications of increased safety. An integral part of the conference was the continuous display and demonstration of aircraft used for lightplane research. This display was located at the airport on the James Forrestal Campus. The document is a record of the conference, and it includes presentations by those working to enhance general aviation safety--Government, several universities, aviation insurance companies, and the aircraft manufacturers.
