The Archives is a repository for unique or rare, primary materials relating to aviation safety and security. These collections are available to university users and outside researchers.
In addition to being available on-site, a growing number of documents from the collections can be accessed online through the ASASA Digital Library. The Digital Library contains documents including thousands of photographs, letters, reports, and other items, most of which offer full text.
Contact us for reference services–we'll be happy to help you find what you need, and we can often provide electronic copies of documents for personal use.
Embry Riddle's COVID-19 informational page has the latest information about health precautions (including possible closures).
In accordance with University's plan for a safe phased reopening, we continue to encourage remote use of the collections. Staff is available to answer questions and provide research support and remote access. While we encourage all researchers to pursue remote access, on-site research visits are available by appointment. Please contact Melissa Gottwald at firstname.lastname@example.org or 928-777-3907 (voice mail).
Starting in 1948, Flight Safety Foundation published a number of monthly or bi-monthly bulletins devoted to different aviation safety themes until 2006 when the bulletins were superseded by AeroSafety World. Published from 1954 to 1988, Pilots Safety Exchange Bulletin is an example of just one of these bulletins. The issue highlighted here contains an article originally published in the MATS Flyer. It tells the story of the ditching of a Military Air Transport Service (MATS) C-54 in the stormy Atlantic Ocean. This bulletin also includes a list of ditchings that occurred between 1952 and 1955.
