SCAA Looks to Expand SHARE Program in 2015

12 Jan 2015 2:12 PM | Debi Carpenter (Administrator)

The SCAA began the Safety Hazard Awareness Reporting and Empowerment (SHARE) program in 2013 in an effort to establish a collaborative reporting system for SoCal aviation operators - that includes Part 91 and 135 operators, as well as FBO's, maintenance repair stations, ATC, flight schools, and anyone else with a stake in aviation safety.

The SCAA Safety Committee encourages SHARE participants to routinely log in and enter safety reports into the SHARE website. The more participation we receive, the more data we will collect for analysis, and the more useful SHARE becomes to all involved. Please login, enter reports when appropriate, and contribute to existing reports by leaving your anonymous comments.

We will continue to reach out to existing SHARE participants as well as potential new contributors in the SCAA to bolster our data set. We received 33 safety reports in 2014, and hope to increase that number dramatically in 2015. By collecting more data, we will be able to use reports of hazards and safety occurrences that affect our members to drive the discussions at SHARE events.

If you are not a registered participant please contact safety@socalaviation.org<mailto:safety@socalaviation.org> for more information about becoming a registered member.

The Safety Committee will hold five SHARE events in 2015. Four of these will be small two-hour roundtable discussions focusing on FBO and Maintenance safety. One roundtable for each topic will be held in the L.A. and San Diego areas. Stay tuned for dates and times. We will also hold a main SHARE event on the afternoon of the SCAA annual membership meeting on June 2015. With IBAC unveiling IS-BAH (International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling) in 2014, we will strive to be more inclusive of FBOs and maintenance organizations in our safety programs at SCAA.

We hope to stay at the forefront of collaborative safety data sharing and to set the example of what is possible on a regional level. The ultimate goal for our members is simple - as a group, we only need to learn a safety lesson once!
