ASRS Database Online

Welcome to the ASRS Database Online! The ASRS database is the world's largest repository of voluntary, confidential safety information provided by aviation's frontline personnel, including pilots, controllers, mechanics, flight attendants, and dispatchers. The database provides a foundation for specific products and subsequent research addressing a variety of aviation safety issues.

ASRS's database includes the narratives submitted by reporters (after they have been sanitized for identifying details). These narratives provide an exceptionally rich source of information for policy development, human factors research, education, training, and more. The database also contains coded information by expert analysts from the original report which is used for data retrieval and analyses.

ASRS has enhanced ASRS Database Online capabilities – in addition to HTML displays, you can export your search results to Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel® (.xls), and Comma Separated Value (.csv) formats. The content of the .doc, .xls and .csv formats will be the same as the on-screen incident record. The exports generate one row for each incident record and are limited to 10,000 incident records per download, due to speed considerations.

For new users please visit the following pages found to the right under "Database Online Resources": New Users, Search Strategies, Sample Searches, ASRS Coding Taxonomy, and About ASRS Data.
