ACSF and Baldwin Collaborate to Offer ASAP Services
Washington, DC, October 28, 2016 — The Air Charter Safety Foundation (ACSF) and Baldwin Aviation have been working together to offer the charter and business aviation industry an Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP) that allows customers to combine the FAA/ACSF ASAP Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Baldwin Aviation’s data technology. Both ACSF and Baldwin Aviation are pleased to announce they have reached an agreement in principle.
In the near future, Baldwin Aviation will offer ACSF members and ASAP participants an alternative to the web-based application tool (WBAT) program. ACSF members will have the option of signing-up with Baldwin Aviation to access their technology.
“The goal is to provide end users with one-stop shopping by combining their overall safety management system with an ACSF-ASAP program,” said ACSF President Bryan Burns. “It is through a cooperative effort and shared a mission of safety, that the ACSF and Baldwin Aviation have been able to bring this program to the marketplace through a single data source. Both entities believe this will be a win-win relationship for the charter and business aviation community, as we work together to reduce operational risk and redundant workload associated with multiple databases,” noted Burns.
“Baldwin Aviation is excited to cooperate with the ACSF on their ASAP program,” said Baldwin Aviation president Don Baldwin. “We are happy to offer the marketplace the ability to participate in ASAP all within the Baldwin SMS software application. This will represent a significant decrease in both time and cost for each participating charter & business aviation operator, without compromising their respective data and reports,” noted Baldwin.

Pioneering Agreement with Mitre and FAA to serve as a gateway for ASIAS
Baldwin Aviation has entered into a pioneering agreement with The MITRE Corporation and FAA to serve as a gateway for its clients to share relevant safety information with the FAA’s Aviation Safety Information Analysis and Sharing (ASIAS) program. The ASIAS program connects approximately 185 data and information sources across government and industry, including voluntarily provided safety data. The ASIAS program works closely with the Commercial Aviation Safety Team (CAST) and the General Aviation Joint Steering Committee (GAJSC) to monitor known risk, evaluate the effectiveness of deployed mitigations, and detect emerging risk. Once a risk is discovered and it reaches a level of potential severity that it must be acted upon, the community (industry and the FAA) will work together to mitigate those risks and monitor to see if they had the desired effectiveness. ASIAS is the aviation community working together to continually improve safety.
The ASIAS Executive Board has approved the first protocol providing the opportunity for any Baldwin client to easily participate in aviation data sharing by inputting safety data into their normal safety reporting through Baldwin Aviation. “The objective of this initiative is to make aviation safety and reporting FDM [Flight Data Monitoring] data sharing easy and seamless through our clients’ Baldwin software application,” said Don Baldwin, Chief Executive Officer of Baldwin Aviation. “The process is simple. Based on Baldwin’s Master MOU, our clients will execute a simple one-page agreement with Baldwin that will allow access to ASIAS as well as receive output through Baldwin.” “We’re honored to be the first organization entrusted with this new ASIAS protocol,” Baldwin continued.
"Since we already maintain and process our clients’ data on an ongoing basis, we can quickly report data that used to take individual clients a month to collect. By providing a single informational port to ASIAS, we have streamlined the process of collecting the data, made it more manageable from a legal and practical standpoint and increased the value of the data since it is collected, reviewed, and evaluated together and then shared in a fashion that provides the valuable safety information to a very broad audience of operators in the ASIAS program. It will allow us to create and share an extremely large and valuable database.”
This latest initiative adds to the list of industry firsts for Baldwin’s out-of-the-box thinking and follows through on these creative and effective programs. Contact us to learn more!
