Brief Description:

Aviation in the United States has an unrivaled safety record thanks in large part to our ability to learn from our mistakes. The ASRS is an important facet of the continuing effort by government, industry, and individuals to maintain and improve aviation safety. NASA ASRS collects voluntarily submitted aviation safety incident reports from pilots, controllers, flight attendants, dispatchers, mechanics, ground crew, and others.  Aviation analysts review each submission to identify system deficiencies and issues alerting messages to persons in a position to correct them.  Safety reports are de-identified and entered into an online database which is a public repository available to the FAA, NASA, and organizations world-wide which are engaged in research and the promotion of safe flight.  Individuals can submit safety reports, view the online database, and subscribe to the monthly aviation safety newsletter “Callback” at
In this seminar, Neil Irvin, a Senior Safety Analyst at ASRS, will cover the fundamentals of the Aviation Reporting System. We will review how and when to file a report, as well as the protections granted to a pilot by filling out a report.  If you are not familiar with the ASRS system or have any questions, don’t miss this seminar!

Neil Irvin is a Senior Safety Analyst with NASA’s Aviation Safety Reporting System.  He has worked in aviation since 1974 with the U.S. Military, FAA, Beechcraft, Petroleum Helicopters, and several corporations.
