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.
