ASAP

What is ASAP?

ASAP is the Aviation Safety Action Program. This is a program managed by the Company, the Federal Aviation Administration and Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association.

This is a program that has extensive rules and regulations. It is advised that you contact one of our ASAP Representatives should you have any questions or concerns about this program or whether you should file an ASAP event. Contacting these representatives is not filing an event. There is a specific procedure in order to properly file an event.

Your AMFA ASAP Reps are:

Primary: Larry Dildine  972-345-2990
Alternate: John Paonessa  214-534-7501
