AAR Signs MOU to Take Part in FAA Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP)
Program encourages MRO technicians to report potential safety issues
MIAMI, October 9, 2015 – AAR (NYSE: AIR), a recognized leader in aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO), has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Federal Aviation Administration of South Florida FSDO-19 to take part in its Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP). Under ASAP, maintenance technicians at the Company’s aircraft repair facility in Miami are encouraged to voluntarily disclose potential safety issues that come to their attention.
The goal is to enhance aviation safety through the prevention of accidents and incidents. AAR Aircraft Services – Miami is the only Part 145 Repair Station in the south region to sign up for this voluntary program. The Miami repair station is also one of only 14 MROs in the U.S. in the FAA Voluntary Safety Management System program.
"AAR has a history and a culture of sharing information with the FAA, and ASAP is another way we’re partnering with the agency to enhance safety," said Frank R. Valenzano, Vice President Quality and Safety, Aircraft Services – Miami. "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."
Safety and performance are the cornerstones of AAR’s 1MRO Network, comprised of five aircraft maintenance facilities in Indianapolis; Oklahoma City; Miami; Duluth, Minn.; and Lake Charles, La. Last year, AAR became the first maintenance provider to take part in the FAA’s Aviation Safety Information Analysis and Sharing program (ASIAS). The program is designed to help MRO operators avoid serious and potentially costly safety issues and the FAA to identify high-risk areas.
