N-Jet's FAA ASAP Safety Reporting Program Now Live

<back to top>

September 2013 -  As part of our overall safety culture and goals, N-Jet has established several world-class safety management systems for our Flight Crew, Maintenance, Ground Crew, Cabin Crew, Dispatch, and other Employees to voluntarily identify and report safety and operational concerns. These programs include SMS Hazard and Opportunity to Improve, CRM reporting, as well as the newly released N-Jet ASAP program for the reporting of safety issues that may have regulatory consequences. The collected information is reviewed and analyzed to facilitate early detection and improve awareness of operational deficiencies and adverse trends. The information specified in employee reports is 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.

ASAP Program

N-Jet, in cooperation with the FAA, has established an Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP) for Flight Crew, Maintenance, Ground Crew, Cabin Crew, and Dispatch employees. The N-Jet ASAP program provides a vehicle whereby employees can identify and report safety issues to management and the FAA for resolution without the fear that the FAA will use the reports accepted under this program to take legal enforcement action against them or that the Company will use such information to take disciplinary action. 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 all relevant departments and the FAA, each report is investigated and corrective actions determined based on a non-disciplinary approach to flight safety.
