ASAP WBAT - Air Methods


As part of our overall safety goals, Air Methods has established the ASAP Program for our Flight Crew and Maintenance Technicians to voluntarily identify and report safety and operational concerns. The collected information is reviewed and analyzed to facilitate early detection and improved awareness of operational deficiencies and adverse trends. The information specified in employee reports are used to identify the root causes and determine appropriate remedial actions which are then monitored for effectiveness. This process promotes collaboration between employee work groups and management for the early identification of hazards and to maintain a proactive approach regarding safety concerns and corrective action recommendations.


Air Methods, in cooperation with the FAA, participate in the Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP) for Flight Crew and a Maintenance Safety Action Program (MSAP) for Maintenance Technicians. The Air Methods ASAP/MSAP is a voluntary, self-reporting program designed to identify and reduce possible flight safety concerns. ASAP/MSAP uses employee input to identify significant safety concerns and issues; operational deficiencies; non-compliance with regulations; deviations from company policies and procedures; and unusual events. In partnership with the all relevant departments and the FAA, each report is investigated and corrective actions determined based on a non-disciplinary approach to flight safety.

Incident Reporting

Air Methods has developed the AIDMOR system for the submission of incident and event reports by our Flight Crew, Maintenance Technicians and Air Medical Crew employees to identify safety and operational deficiencies within their respective departments. These reports will be investigated and analyzed to identify hazards; determine appropriate safety and/or operational improvements; monitor the effectiveness of corrective actions, and proactively promote employee awareness of potential problems. AIDMOR’s are required per the SMS Policy, refer to the Safety Reporting page found on FlightDeck for additional information and reporting requirements.
