  11. Global Aviation Safety Network (GAIN)
    The driving idea behind GAIN is that government, industry and labor can cooperate to make the system safer. GAIN originally was proposed by the FAA to learn about causal factors in accident chains by bringing together diverse groups in a voluntary, privately owned and operated global network of data collection and exchange systems. GAIN provided information on tools and processes to help safety decision makers identify, promote and support existing tools and processes. When FAA in 2007 ended its support for GAIN, Flight Safety Foundation stepped in to support distribution of the wide range of fine products developed by GAIN.
