About the book

During the operation of civil aircraft, it is necessary to conduct safety and risk assessment to guarantee the airworthiness security levels are within the acceptance range. The process and methods for the safety and risk assessment of civil airplane fleet during operation are established. The method to determine the fleet exposure time, number of occurrences, severity and the fleet risk are given. The risk type of the events, the severity level of the event consequence and the approaches to determine the probability level of the event are given. The safety and risk assessment of different systems in airplane are analyzed, and the appropriate corrective actions to reduce the risk level are also given.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Jasna Bozic

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
