SAFA - foreign aircraft safety assessment program


At the regional level within the JAA (Joint Aviation Authorities) with 1996 of foreign aircraft carried out a safety assessment program (Safety Assessment of Foreign Aircraft - SAFA), which provides the current state of the Armed Forces control at airports.

SAFA Programme specifies that each state - member of the ECAC may inspect foreign aircraft (states - members of the ECAC and other countries) during their stay at the airport for a total for all countries - members of the ECAC procedures providing a common format reports. Included in the program SAFA inspection are presented in the form of a checklist, containing 54 points that cover check: licensing of crew members; guidelines and procedures that should be in the cockpit; compliance with these methods and members of the flight crew on-board the sun; equipment and safety equipment in the cockpit and cabin; cargo; Sun condition (visual inspection). If the sun does not allow parking time to perform the verification program in full, then to exclude aircraft departure delays the threat is carried out in an abbreviated form.

It is essential that in case of detection during the inspection of significant violations is notified operator and the national CAA. And if the violation may affect the safety of the flight being undertaken, the inspector has the right to demand immediate corrective action before the sun go in flight. In the case where the elimination of disparities requires a lot of time or will be carried out at another airport, the inspector may decide to permit flights to relocation (including without passengers or cargo).

Each state - a member of the ECAC shall appoint a national coordinator for the SAFA program, and will allocate the focus (by the operator or aircraft types) direction of this program. Reports on inspections and corrective actions on them are analyzed on a regular basis and communicated to the States - members of the ECAC.

In terms of content SAFA Programme can be regarded as a special addition USAP program in relation to the European conditions. It is believed that the SAFA program can not replace appropriate supervision of national CAA and guarantee the safety of a particular aircraft.
