AAR has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the FAA of South Florida FSDO-19 to participate in its aviation safety action programme (ASAP).
Under ASAP, technicians from AAR’s MRO facility in Miami will be encouraged to voluntarily disclose any potential safety issues that come to their attention.
AAR said it is the only Part 145 repair station in the south to sign up for the voluntary programme, which aims to enhance aviation safety.
Frank Valenzano, vice-president of quality and safety, aircraft services – Miami, said: “Aircraft safety should never be compromised for any reason. ASAP creates an environment that encourages reporting, and we’re happy to take part in it.”
