Do you think you have a better way to reduce accidents in our Region? Do you have a passion for aviation safety? Do you love gathering and analyzing data to make decisions? Are you a pilot or flight instructor or maintenance technician or an interested non-airman filled with ideas about how to make flying safer? Are you willing to take action on those ideas? Do you know how to motivate people to action in pursuit of a goal? Good!

Join us !

The Alaskan Region FAA Safety Team, or FAASTeam as it is known, would like you to consider joining us as a volunteer FAASTeam Representative to become a creative part of reshaping aviation safety and lowering the accident rate in our Region. The positions are similar to and very different from the Aviation Safety Counselors of the past. We are looking for people with expertise and passion and contacts in the aviation community. Our initial focus will be on general aviation pilots because that is where the current accidents are happening. But we are not going to limit our outreach.

We are looking for people with passion and an interest in aviation safety in all parts of our large state, from the largest city in South Central Alaska to the smallest village in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta. North to south, east to west.

Can you help? 

Most of the accidents in Alaska happen during landing and takeoff, with most of those happening during landing. Do you have a passion for figuring out the root cause of accidents? Do you understand human factors? Can you gather and analyze data and make predictions? Can you do statistical analysis? Can you figure out why these things happen? Are you interested in working with other volunteers on finding solutions?

If you want to have a positive impact on the future of aviation safety, join us as this exciting new approach to aviation safety unfolds. Send an email to FAASTeam Program Manager Roy Mann and tell him a little bit about yourself, your interests and expertise, and what part of Alaska you live in at

If you have already sent an email to us telling us of your interest, you don't have to do it again. The process of identifying FAASTeam representatives has begun! Look for more information as it becomes available on the FAASTeam's website,
