Aircraft Safety. Mission First... Safety Always!. Safety is not a box to check or a separate activity that we “finish.” Rather, safety must be an integral part of how we operate in every activity. Safety means…. Paying attention Thinking clearly Doing the “right thing”.
PERCEIVE hazards related to:
PILOT and PEOPLE involved in the event
AIRCRAFT & ACTIVITY
ENVIRONMENT for activity or event
EXTERNAL PRESSURES on participants
PROCESS risk by considering:
CONSEQUENCES of each hazard
REALITY (no wishful thinking allowed!)
EXTERNAL PRESSURES involved
PERFORM risk management:
TRANSFER if appropriate
ELIMINATE hazards whenever possible
ACCEPT when benefits > consequences
MITIGATE hazards and associated risk
*Any CAP member must be able to make a “safety veto” on any activity at any time, without fear of ridicule or reprisal from any other member.
