ASRS: Safe Protections
Here’s a program that improves the system with the added benefit of protecting you from enforcement when you honestly just goof. (And who doesn’t?) What’s not to like?
The Aviation Safety Reporting System, ASRS, is a means of confidentially and anonymously reporting unsafe conditions—including your own actions—in aviation, generally without fear of FAA enforcement. Most of us are at least somewhat aware of the ASRS program, but few of us really understand how it works. This is an important program that is of benefit to aviation at large and potentially to us individually, so we should all understand what the ASRS system is, what it can do for us, and how to use it.
