SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA AVIATION ASSOCIATION MEMBERS COLLABORATE TO IMPROVE SAFETY PROGRAM EFFECTIVENESS
(Carlsbad, Calif., January 24, 2014) –The Southern California Aviation Association’s (SCAA) Safety Committee announced its new SHARE web portal, and second SHARE Roundtable scheduled for February 27th at Long Beach’s AirFlite. SHARE (Safety Hazard Awareness Reporting & Empowerment) is a program designed by SCAA and powered by Baldwin Aviation to create an open format for dialogue and sharing of safety data.
The SHARE web portal pools safety data from corporate flight departments and general aviation professionals through the electronic SHARE web portal in a de-identified, aggregated format. Participants can use this data and the SHARE roundtable hazard discussions to learn what safety challenges business and general aviation are experiencing.
Through SHARE, participants identify trends, deviations, successful programs, current issues, and discuss information that can improve the safety among operators. All this is done openly and candidly in a confidential setting. SHARE creates an environment in which operators can feel comfortable enough to share their experiences. Overall, SHARE participants will be able to learn from each other and benefit from a larger collective data and experience set, with the goal of not having to learn any lesson more than once.
“SCAA’s Safety Committee is confident you will gain value from joining SHARE,” said Candace Covington, SCAA’s Safety Committee Chair. “Whether your flight department has a safety reporting system or not, you can participate with your peers to review case studies, safety reporting challenges and successes, as well as discuss industry hot topics and best practices. It is a great way to improve your safety reporting program.”
The SHARE web portal is being provided by Baldwin Aviation, a company dedicated to providing the tools aviation needs to enhance safety. Baldwin’s participation in SHARE ensures the value of this program, by providing a larger collective data and experience set, with the goal of not learning any lesson more than once. As a SHARE participant, Southern California operators will have a new, innovative tool available to their safety programs.
“This will be an SCAA staple for future safety events,” said Chuck Reeves, Qualcomm’s Director of Aviation and SHARE participant. “It was a really great and pointed discussion on topics that impact all flight departments.”
