The National Air Transportation Association (NATA) launched RA Check, an FAA-endorsed flight-risk assessment tool (Frat) designed to consider the
probability, severity and weighted value of 38 leading accident causal factors. Developed by FAA officials, aircraft operators and other industry representatives, NATA’s Frat is designed to identify potential hazards before flight and weigh the risk associated with each hazard through a five-step process. To use the tool, operators must create numerical thresholdsthat trigger additional levels of scrutiny before a
flight. NATA is offering a free 30-day trial registration. A subscription costs $99.95 ($79.95 for NATA members) per aircraft per month; there are discounts for more
than three aircraft.
