The Korea Aviation Accident Investigation Board (KAIB, 항공사고조사위원회) was a South Korean agency that investigated aviation accidents and incidents. Around 2005 its headquarters were in Gonghang-dong, Gangseo-gu, Seoul, near Gimpo International Airport, and its FDR/CVR and Wreckage laboratory was located on the property of Gimpo Airport.[1] Around 2004 it had been headquartered in Gwacheon, Gyeonggi-do.[2]

The agency was established on August 12, 2002, replacing the Investigation Division of the Civil Aviation Bureau, Ministry of Construction and Transportation. On July 10, 2006, the Aviation and Railway Accident Investigation Board formed as a result of a merger between the KAIB and the Railway Accident Investigation Board.[3]
