The study was performed to understand the nature and purpose of factors affecting the safety and security of the aviation industry and how strategic management systems affect the safety of airports and their importance in the current Aviation industry. In the research, high significance is given to safety policies and the role which they play in keeping the airports and airlines safe by providing safety barriers.

In this study, for the research philosophy, we have incorporated Positivism in our research. To understand the variables of the research as much as possible and to complete the research objectives, a quantitative method was used in this research. As for the data collecting tool, the research used survey-type close-ended questionnaires.  A total of 150 questionnaires were distributed to the aviation sector people in Pakistan. Through the questionnaires, the study represents the impact of pilot experience and leadership style adopted by organizations on the safety management of Aviation. The research describes how significant is the pilot experience in relation to the chances of accidents occurring and how leadership style and better management decisions how a great impact on the performance and safety of the Aviation industry.
