FAA and PASS Introduce Partnership for Safety

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the Professional Aviation Safety Specialists (PASS) and the National Air Traffic Controllers Association (NATCA) introduced

the Partnership for Safety program to identify safety issues before incidents or accidents occur by seeking input from employees. PASS President Tom Brantley released the following statement regarding participation in the program:

"PASS is pleased to be a part of this critical safety initiative. We are committed to this effort and encourage all members to take the opportunity to work collaboratively with the FAA to ensure that the safety of the flying public is always priority number one. The new program will be an invaluable tool that members can utilize by talking to colleagues about safety concerns and sharing issues with union representatives and managers. This program will go a long way in helping the FAA to identify critical safety issues before they occur and provide solutions from the perspective of the workforce. Please take a moment to visit www.passnational.org for more information on the Partnership for Safety.
