AAIB website moves to gov.uk

The Air Accidents Investigation Branch announces its move to the gov.uk platform as part of the government’s reorganisation of departmental websites.

The AAIB investigates civil aircraft accidents and serious incidents within the UK, its overseas territories and crown dependencies and works with the Department of Transport.

The government has said that the independence of the AAIB to undertake its safety investigations will not be affected by the transition.

Feedback from a public survey of the new website during beta testing was largely positive but the government says it will continue to improve the site based on the feedback in partnership with the Government Digital Services (GDS) to implement improvements.

The government is calling for continuing user feedback to make some changes as they require a demonstration of a “strong user need” to the GDS.

At present the government is working on ensuring that the links on the old website will direct users properly on the new platform.
