Operation SAFE Analysts & Technicians

What is an Analyst?

NAAREF recognizes Operation SAFE Analysts as trained professionals in conducting aircraft pattern testing. They are not only proficient with operating the needed equipment to conduct the fly-in, but also experienced in interpreting and analyzing the collected data to formulate recommendations. It is the Analyst who consults with the applicator and ultimately verifies their participation in Operation SAFE to NAAA.
