Safety Is Always Our Top Priority
Many companies have a great safety record, but as one of few elite operators to have been registered by the ACSF for meeting its Industry Audit Standard, an independent evaluation of an operator’s adherence to the highest standards of safety and regulatory compliance, the competition cannot match the level of comfort that you will receive at Mayo Aviation. Furthermore, we are Wyvern Registered, ARGUS Gold Rated, and received the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) Corporate Business Flying Safety Award for over 35 years in a row along with 216,000 hours of accident free flying, a record few operators can match.
Safety Management System (SMS)
Safety Management System (SMS) is a integral building block to the culture and practices here at Mayo Aviation. SMS is recognized by the Joint Planning and Development Office (JPDO), International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), and civil aviation authorities (CAA) and product/service providers as the next step in the evolution of safety in aviation.
Our SMS provides our organization with:
- A structured means of safety risk management decision making
- A means of demonstrating safety management capability before system failures occur
- Increased confidence in risk controls though structured safety assurance processes
- An effective interface for knowledge sharing between regulator and certificate holder
- A safety promotion framework to support a sound safety culture
Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP)
The goal of the Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP) is to enhance aviation safety through the prevention of accidents and incidents. Its focus is to encourage voluntary reporting of safety issues and events that come to the attention of employees of certain certificate holders.
To encourage an employee to voluntarily report safety issues even though they may involve an alleged violation of Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR), enforcement-related incentives have been designed into the program. An ASAP is based on a safety partnership that will include the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the certificate holder, and may include any third party such as the employee’s labor organization.
