In the UK, aircraft accidents and serious incidents are investigated by the AIR Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) under the Department of Transport (DfT).
Definitions for aircraft accidents and incidents can be found in Regulations (EU) 996/2010.
You should report aircraft accidents and serious incidents directly to the AAIB.
Please visit the
AAIB website or call their 24-hour number on 01252 512299.
The UK Airprox Board (UKAB) reviews Airprox incidents. UKAB is jointly sponsored by the CAA and Military Aviation Authority (MAA).
Airprox events should be reported as MORs under IR2015/1018 Annex I 5(1):
‘A collision or a near collision on the ground or in the air, with another aircraft, terrain or obstacle.’
Annex II Aircraft shall report Airprox incidents directly to the UK Airprox Board.
