Background/Objectives: Aviation safety would be different by safety behavior of members and there are needs to do research the perception of members about safety culture and atmosphere of low cost carriers. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Positive analysis of people who have been working in local low cost carriers had been done using Self-administered Questionnaire Survey Method through Convenience Sampling Method. And statistic things were treated by a statistic package program called “SPSS for Win 18.0”. Plus, the analysis of data had been done by Descriptive Statistics and Multivariate Statistical Analysis. Findings: Firstly, It was found that all of factors in safety culture have given a meaningful effect into safety atmosphere. Analyzing it, it is natural that safety regulation culture to mainly think conducting duties based on rules influences the atmosphere to consider safety education and regulation of safety importantly. According to the test result of hypothesis 2, it was showed that all of factors in safety culture have given a meaningful effect into a safety behavior as well. It means that the culture to treat a safety as first priority when people work has an effect on safety behavior. Based on the test result of hypothesis 3, it was known that only factor of safety consensual give an effect on safety behavior. It has delivered that members in organizations have recognized safety consensual is the most important factor in safety behavior, especially more in low cost carriers’ than major airlines. Improvement/Applications: Unlike other researches, detailed influences and relationship in various variables could be researched in this study. Through this research, it is concluded that it is difficult to find accurate and a variety of variables in existing researches. This report and result could be the starting point to explore deeper and wider relationship among variables for safety behavior.
