Prestigious TSI Safety Course Held Just Before EAA AirVenture 2006
Attend The Course, Then Head Down To The World's Greatest Aviation Celebration
January 12, 2006 — Continuing its long-standing partnership with EAA in aviation safety, the Transportation Safety Institute (TSI) has added the Aviation Safety Program Managers (ASPM) course to its EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2006 activities. Since this is a five-day course, TSI will hold the ASPM course the week before EAA AirVenture (July 17-21) in nearby Appleton, Wisconsin. Those attending the course have a unique opportunity to receive vital safety training, and then take in The World's Greatest Aviation Celebration!
EAA's partnership with TSI, a Department of Transportation (DOT) safety agency, goes back many years. Key EAA staff recreational aviation industry experts have been instructors at TSI's Amateur-Built Aircraft Accident Investigation course and the Initial Amateur-Built/Light Sport Aircraft Designated Airworthiness Representative (DAR) Standardization course for many years. TSI is also a key EAA AirVenture safety exhibitor in the Federal Pavilion.
"This TSI course is tailored for those responsible for implementation and/or oversight of an aviation accident prevention program," said Randy Hansen, EAA government relations director. "We encourage those responsible for managing local airport safety programs, state aviation safety programs, and ICAO aviation safety programs to take advantage of this unique opportunity, as the course is open to all public, private, and international personnel."
The ASPM course will provide basic and advanced applications of Aviation Accident Prevention Program Management, including theory and application of accident causation; systems approach to accident prevention; aviation risk management; accident prevention awards programs; flight line safety; hazards identification reporting and tracking; trend analysis techniques; audits; surveys and internal evaluations; emergency action plans; aviation safety education and awareness strategies; and office management techniques.
The course is scheduled for the Holiday Inn-Select in Appleton from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. each day. Course enrolment must be made through the TSI course manager, "D" Smith, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 405/954-2913.
For those unable to attend the ASPM course, EAA encourages you to stop by TSI's AirVenture 2006 display in the Federal Pavilion. "D" Smith will be at the display all week to discuss any specific or general safety questions you may have.
