Program cuts time and effort for charter and business aviation operators to submit ASAP reports without compromising anonymity
Following an agreement to establish a single reporting channel earlier this year, AviationManuals and the Air Charter Safety Foundation (ACSF) have announced that they are going live with their Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP) offering for business aviation operators, which combines the FAA/ACSF ASAP with AviationManuals SMS software for 'one-stop' reporting.
“This offering seamlessly integrates the ACSF ASAP program and our SMS platform, creating a streamlined reporting channel," said AviationManuals CEO Mark Baier. "Business aviation operators can easily submit ASAP reports conveniently via our cloud-based ARC SMS software and iPad app. This data is then reviewed directly by ACSF’s ASAP team.”
The ASAP program allows Part 135 and 91 operators to participate in a voluntary safety reporting agreement with the FAA to help improve safety throughout the industry. ACSF then aggregates the data to track safety trends. Submissions can now be made directly from AviationManuals’ ARC SMS software application, simplifying the process and decreasing the user’s time and effort.
“Our mission is clear: to promote the highest level of aviation safety,” said ACSF President Bryan Burns. “With all the flight reporting required by business and charter operators, streamlining processes where you can is a win-win scenario for the industry. Now ASAP submissions can be made directly through AviationManuals’ SMS software, eliminating the need for double entries.”
