Reliable Source[edit]

During the course of recent discussions surrounding a new aviation list (List of aircraft accidents and incidents resulting in at least 50 fatalities), comments were made on the list talk page [|here (#5)] and here, as well as in this AfD regarding the of the Aviation Safety Network as a reliable source. The present comment is in support of the ASN and to demonstrate their utility within academic and technical publications and conferences.

Entering the search term “Aviation Safety Network” in Google scholar resulted in roughly 350+ pages of results. Below are selections from the first 10 pages where the Aviation Safety Network (or Aviation-Safety.net) was either 1) cited as a reference or 2) portions of ASN data were used in original research. (Some of these require purchase or subscription, but the citation of ASN is clear in the search summary). This was a simple first search (no digging) and the citations below (a partial list) represent less than 5% of the results. These references are books, journal articles, or conference presentations. Website-based articles were omitted:

  • Woodley, Charles. BOAC: An Illustrated History. Tempus Publishing, Limited, 2004.


Conference Presentations
