AviationManuals’ sister company ARC Safety Management has collaborated with NASA to automatically integrate the agency’s Aviation Safety Reporting System (ASRS) into the Maryland company’s custom web and mobile safety management system software, eliminating the need to duplicate reporting. ASRS allows pilots to voluntarily submit incident reports and gives them limited immunity if filed before the FAA takes any enforcement action.
The data collected on ASRS is anonymous and is used to find deficiencies and improve safety. ARC Safety Management said the development of the new feature took several months.
“Safety is paramount at ARC, and since ASRS aims to improve overall industry safety, we wanted to support the program by making it easier for operators to submit their data,” said ARC and AviationManuals CEO Mark Baier. “Through this integration, we will not only be helping to keep our clients’ organizations safer but also the industry as a whole.”
