Leadership Role of the CFI to Support Safety Culture

Date and Time:

Andrew DeFeo, DPE
Brief Description:

The effectiveness of Safety Management Systems (SMS) depends greatly on the Aviation Community having a Positive Safety Culture. Shared values, actions, and behaviors must demonstrate commitment to safety first; over the competing goals, pressures, and demands of our industry.  Despite the recognized importance of Safety Culture, aviation communities may not yet be equipped with the tools needed to implement this improved culture. We often see responses to safety issues are in reactive mode - addressing the need to improve safety after safety has been compromised. The Flight instructor (CFI) is the first to observe unsafe actions in the training environment. The leadership role of the CFI is critical in supporting a Safety Culture. This will give our community the tools that they need to make safety decisions proactive instead of reactive. This workshop will identify areas where the CFI can play a critical role in teaching, supporting and reinforcing a Positive Safety Culture.
