Comitato 8 Ottobre - Per non dimenticare
  • Task Force

  • Introduction

    Under the direction and coordination of Capt. Arturo Radini, one of the most influential expert of Aviation Safety and Accident Investigation, the Technical Task Force intends, throughout its activities, to implement effectively the main mission for which the Foundation was set-up (the continuous improvement of Aviation Safety and the Protection of Passengers). Providing studies, evaluations, advice, comments, training, information and useful considerations, in the several areas of action, such as the constant enhancement of Safety awareness and the appropriate response to an emergency, e.g. an air accident, the Foundation has the main goal to keep high the attention on such important topics. As the Foundation is a no-profit entity, its Technical Task Force consists merely of volunteers who provide their services without remuneration. Any conflicting type of interest or other ends would definitely jeopardize the work of the Foundation and its credibility, even if independence, autonomy and impartiality have a consequence – not only in economic terms. Anyhow, it is because of its super-partes position that the Foundation has been capable of acquiring an unique and privileged position among the most important and influential worldwide Aviation Stakeholders. 

  • A group of well-known experts

    The Foundation’s Technical Task Force, is made up of a group of well-known experts of considerable experience and professionalism and it is structured in a simple way with the goal to ensure -throughout its members and external consultants- the conduction of its activities with promptness, efficiency and effectiveness.


    Thanks to its collaborators can provide specific expertise in the field of:

    • Safety
    • Assistance to victims of aircraft accidents and their family members
    • Investigation of aircraft accidents
    • Commercial Aviation
    • General Aviation
    • Helicopters
    • ULM
    • RPAS
    • Air Traffic Control
    • Flight Inspections
    • Radio Navigation Aids
    • Airports
    • National and Supranational Regulations
    • Training.

    The Technical Task Force of Fondazione 8 Ottobre 2001 is able to conduct studies and analysis of the current regulations and their applications with the purpose of providing views, opinions, proposal and possible solutions in different locations and moments, such as Public Consultations, Workshops, National and International Conferences, as well as to contribute to the identification of a regulatory framework, always updated, precise and dynamic, able to take due account of all peculiarities of the Air Transport sector and in particular of the Flight Safety and Protection of the Rights of Passengers.


  • Activities

    Among its activities, the Technical Task Force is committed, thanks to its professionalism and experience to strengthen the level of safety, and the preparedness of all the stakeholders who might be involved in an air accident.


    With reference to the latter, the Technical Task Force is able to ensure a propere response, both for the immediate post-emergency and for the medium and long term, for all the aspects which may arise during an emergency, such as operational, regulamentary, liability and emotional support ones.


    Moreover, thanks to a dedicated preparation the Technical Task Force holds a unique position in providing a free, indipendent and impartial advice on legal and liability issues to people who have been involved in an air crash and their loved ones.


    Yet, with the aim to provide full support to those involved, the Foundation has signed an agreement with “Associazione MAYDAYItalia“, which is specialized in Crisis Management and Psychological Support during Post-Accident’s phases to victims, relatives and responders. The agreement also includes the possibility of providing training courses in Crisis Management. Upon completion of the course, participants will be provided with the certification of “PEER”.


    The variety of its projects and activities would be totally in vain if it were not disclosed to the Stakeholders involved in Aviation Safety, and in particular to the users, main reason of our work. This is the reason why the Technical Task Force commenced a communication campaign aimed at disseminating information related to Aviation Safety, in order to make people more aware of the fundamental principle which stands behind the modern society, living in a safe world. It can be achieved only through the constant spread of the so-called “Safety Culture” among all players in the transport industry. Communication activities occur therefore through the organization of the above mentioned events, our website, main social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin) and the media.
