FAA Is Not Realizing the Full Benefits of the Aviation Safety Action Program: Federal Aviation Administration
On Jan. 16, 2006, a contract mechanic in El Paso, TX, was killed while troubleshooting an engine oil leak as two pilots performed an engine run-up procedure. Within 24 hours, the pilots submitted a request for the accident to be accepted into the air carrier┐s ASAP. ASAP is a joint FAA and industry program intended to generate safety info. through voluntary disclosure that may not be otherwise obtainable to identify potential precursors to accidents. The program allows aviation employees to self-report safety violations to air carriers and FAA, without fear of reprisal through legal or disciplinary actions. This report assesses FAA┐s implementation of ASAP and identifies improvements necessary for FAA to obtain maximum safety benefits from the program.
