Notice Number: NOTC2310
The FAA is embarking on an FAA General Aviation (GA) Safety Outreach Initiative. It is intended to increase the GA community's awareness of safety management practices that could elevate the industry’s overall safety performance.
The primary goals of the FAA GA Safety Outreach Initiative include:
- Increase the GA community’s awareness of the Safety Attributes and the benefits of applying them
- Increase participation in the Safety Management System Voluntary Program (SMSVP)
- Reaching these goals will result in a desired outcome of a lower accident and incident rate in the GA community.
The following link leads to the FAA General Aviation Safety Outreach Initiative webpage:
The following link leads to a brochure explaining the benefits of managing safety with a voluntary, formal SMS:
The following link leads to a short, animated video that describes how the FAA’s SMS Voluntary Program can benefit the GA community:
Why wait? Enter the SMS Voluntary Program. It is easy as 1,2,3.
