Safety Reporting

As part of our overall safety goals, Farmingdale Sate College Aviation Center has established a system for our CFIs/Students, Maintenance, Ground Crew, Dispatch, and Other Employees to voluntarily identify and report safety and operational concerns. The collected information is reviewed and analyzed to facilitate early detection and improved awareness of operational deficiencies and adverse trends. The information specified in employee reports are used to identify the root causes and determine appropriate remedial actions which are then monitored for effectiveness. This process promotes collaboration between employee work groups and management for the early identification of hazards and to maintain a proactive approach regarding safety concerns and corrective action recommendations.

Farmingdale Sate College Aviation Center, in cooperation with the FAA, has established an Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP) for CFIs/Students, Maintenance, Ground Crew, and Dispatch employees. The Farmingdale Sate College Aviation Center ASAP is a voluntary, self-reporting program designed to identify and reduce possible flight safety concerns. ASAP uses employee input to identify significant safety concerns and issues; operational deficiencies; non-compliance with regulations; deviations from company policies and procedures; and unusual events. In partnership with the all relevant departments and the FAA, each report is investigated and corrective actions determined based on a non-disciplinary approach to flight safety.

Farmingdale Sate College Aviation Center has developed a system for the submission of incident and event reports by our CFIs/Students, Maintenance, Ground Crew, and Dispatch employees to identify safety and operational deficiencies within their respective departments. These reports will be investigated and analyzed to identify hazards; determine appropriate safety and/or operational improvements; monitor the effectiveness of corrective actions, and proactively promote employee awareness of potential problems.
