Aviation Safety Action Program

Wednesday, December 24, 2008
By George Hatcher

Because of management issues, labor vs management issues, and the question of how much protection should pilots/crew have when they make a mistake, a number of big carriers have dropped the Aviation Safety Action Program. THe official goal of the Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP) is “to enhance aviation safety through the prevention of accidents and incidents. Its focus is to encourage voluntary reporting of safety issues and events that come to the attention of employees of certain certificate holders.”

But pilots are being punished for their honesty.

The program that is being dropped allows pilots and other airline workers to report mistakes they’ve made and safety issues.

This enables carriers to spot trends before they become safety issues.

So..why have Delta, American, U. S. Airways and Com Air dropped the program?

Should we even FLY these carriers if they are not following ASAP?
