AAAE/Mitre Introduction to Safety Management Systems for Airports

The FAA released a new advisory circular this year, Advisory Circular 150/5200-37, which introduces Safety Management System (SMS) to the regulated U.S. airport community. The advisory circular is the first step that the FAA’s Office of Airports is taking to comply with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) mandate for SMS at airports around the world. SMS is a systematic, proactive and well-defined safety program, allowing an organization to incorporate safety and productivity – to fully understand the safety risks of actions and activities and incorporate that the mitigation in those actions or activities. It is essentially a tool for all users of the aviation system to be aware of the risk and to be actively engaged in minimizing the risk while flying. The key to any successful SMS program is that it is data driven, and relies on a non-punitive system of self-reporting.

AAAE, together with the MITRE Corporation, presents an introductory workshop which brings the leadership of the FAA to explain the goals and objectives for SMS at U.S. airports. The workshop will also rely on other aviation sectors that are already moving forward with SMS, such as air traffic and air carriers, learning from their experiences. Finally, the workshop will offer airport attendees some hands-on exercises which will help to identify the needs for SMS, such as identifying hazards and plans for mitigation. Attendees will also examine data sources, the need for reporting and establishing a system of reporting.
