Arizona Aviation Safety Advisory Group
The Arizona FAA Safety Team had their annual representative training on April 29, 2017. A great turn out from all of the reps from throughout the state. One of the items that came out of the training was many of the reps want to know when the local Runway Safety Action Team meetings are scheduled for their airport. If you are not familiar with an RSAT meeting, the local ATC folks for the airport usually run the meeting along with all of the major parties at an airport. The focus of the group are safety issues, primarily on the airside of the terminal, and they try to develop solutions to existing or potential hazards.
