International Society of Air Safety Investigators (ISASI)      

The Florida Tech International Society of Air Safety Investigators (ISASI) Student Chapter is devoted to the education of safety for the biggest, most reliable mode of transportation in our world today. ISASI's mission is to promote improvement in accident or incident investigation. Currently, they have been more strongly dedicated to the dissemination of information. Each week one member presents a case in aviation that has been examined, resolved, and reported by an aviation entity. The scenario, faults/facts, and lessons learned are discussed in detail. The greatest asset any safety program has is information, and in order for the ISASI Student Chapter to become future leaders of Accident Investigation, and experts of aviation with suggestions for improvements on safety, they are first:

a) arming themselves with the knowledge that current experts provide

b) inquiring and exchanging information with peers and aviation enthusiasts
