The Air Charter Safety Foundation (ACSF) has reached an agreement with AviationManuals to jointly offer the ACSF/FAA Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP) with the AviationManuals safety management system (SMS) data technology.
“The goal is to provide end users with one-stop shopping by combining their overall safety management system with the ACSF ASAP,” said ACSF president Bryan Burns. “It is through a cooperative effort and shared mission of safety that the ACSF and AviationManuals have been able to bring this program to the marketplace through a single data source.”
Under the agreement, operators will be able to participate in the ACSF/FAA ASAP through the AviationManuals ARC SMS software application. ARC provides a means to submit, store, and analyze SMS data online, allowing operators to perform risk assessments, post company news, and manage the data. The ASCF/FAA ASAP provides a means for company employees to report unintentional non-compliance events and other issues in a non-punitive environment. In the bigger picture, ASAP is intended to accumulate data and track safety trends.
“Both entities believe this will be a win-win relationship for the charter and business aviation communities, as we work together to reduce operational risk and redundant workload associated with multiple databases,” Burns said.
