    Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP) - Why you need to know about it

    Have you ever made a mistake?...The odds are you probably have but, that's okay!

    ASAP is a program that gives the Aviation Community a safe place to report inadvertent errors, without singling out or placing blame on any one individual. ASAP's mission is to develop the best processes possible, and that can only be done with the help of the individuals within the Aviation Community. The goal of ASAP is to share information, so the Aviation Industry can learn from one another instead of pointing fingers.

    Joining ASAP gives companies the chance to make safety a culture, not a chore.

    Screen_Shot_2015-11-16_at_10.27.13_AM.pngASAP allows and encourages employees to report on those unintentional errors without reprimand; leading to a safer work environment and better procedures. Although this concept isn't new, it is finally available for small and medium sized Part 91 and Part 135 Operators, thanks to the Air Charter Safety Foundation (ACSF).

    The ACSF is a non-profit safety organization that, under a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) from the FAA, is able to administer ASAP.

    "I have to say that using NATA is the the best decision I have made in starting and running our 135 Dept. Early on Emily and the entire group never got tired of my endless questions! *Not that they showed anyway;-). We use them for EVERYTHING, starting at PRIA, Drug Program, Records Storage, all the way thru Audit Prep and just answering all my questions. I seriously could not do this without them. Even when my rep Emily is busy, I can rely on Claudia, or Dan for immediate help. The service we receive is well worth what we pay and then some!!"

    I got a gold star from the TSA inspector who inspected our flight school last year, but that's because my company paid me ground time to research AFSP and make a new AFSP student checklist. Even so, I had one (of 3) AFSP applicants rejected initially due to some of the errors you talk about in the blog. I just wanted to shoot you an email and say thanks for making the effort to clarify the process for all of us. I get the impression that there are a lot of the CFIs out there in the small flight schools who haven't got a clue about the AFSP process. So go ahead and feel good about yourself for helping all us lost boys stay in business and out of the trouble.
