Document Title: AC 120-66C, Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP)
Summary: The primary goal of this proposed AC revision is clarify FAA policy, facilitate achievement of an ASAP’s safety goals, and encourage wider participation in the program. The objective of an ASAP is to encourage employees of certificate holders or other operators to voluntarily report safety information that may be critical to identifying potential precursors to accidents. The FAA has determined that identifying these precursors is essential to further reducing the already low accident rate. The ASAP provides for the collection, analysis, and retention of the safety data that is obtained through the reporting process. ASAP participants use ASAP safety data, much of which would otherwise be unobtainable, to develop corrective actions for identified safety concerns, and to educate the appropriate parties to prevent a recurrence of the same type of safety event.
