As part of our overall safety goals, Mesa Airlines has established a system for our Flight Crew and Other Employees 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.
Mesa Airlines Inc., in cooperation with our employees, employee labor organizations, and the FAA, has established an Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP) for our Flight Crew and Other Employees. The Mesa Airlines ASAP is a voluntary, self-reporting program designed to identify and reduce possible flight safety concerns. ASAP 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, labor organizations, and the FAA, each report is investigated and corrective actions determined based on a non-disciplinary approach to flight safety.
The Mesa Airlines Inc., Fatigue Risk Management Plan (FRMP) encompasses the systematic process for receiving, managing, analyzing, and mitigating fatigue related data per FAA AC 120-103A. The objective is to apply our FRMP using a systematic process to educate Flight Crew on fatigue related issues and, integrate sound fatigue management practices into the Company's flight operations. This objective is accomplished with the guidelines described in 14 CFR 117.7. Our expectation of this program is to increase the overall level of safety while improving flight crewmember's awareness. As described in the FMRP, each element is clearly defined and establishes policies and procedures related to fatigue management.
