Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 60 / Friday, March 28, 2014 / Notices ASIAS data. The IAT submits deidentified study results to the AEB, and the AEB determines how best to disseminate the results to the appropriate stakeholders, including the GA JSC. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES ASIAS for General Aviation The GA JSC is reaching out to the GA community directly and through several GA associations to educate pilots and other stakeholders on the benefits of sharing collected safety data with ASIAS in a protected non-punitive manner, in a manner similar to programs for commercial aviation. In addition, the GA JSC continues its work to maximize safety in GA operations. For example, to date, it has proposed 26 safety interventions to address loss of control. However, analysis shows that more comprehensive data sources from the GA community resulting from a GA ASIAS data sharing program would improve understanding of contributing factors to safety risks in the system. Early in 2014, the steering committee will embark on a demonstration to evaluate the value and benefits of ASIAS for the broader GA community. One of the purposes of the demonstration will be to allow the GA JSC to gain a better understanding of safety risks and emerging threats for the GA community. The project will explore potential new information sources such as General Aviation flight data (recorded through avionics suites, data recorders and new common technologies such as iOS and Android devices), voluntary safety reports, and manufacturer reports. ASIAS for GA Demonstration Project The Administrator announced the GA ASIAS Demonstration Project at the General Aviation Summit at FAA Headquarters on January 27, 2014. The purpose of this demonstration project is to test the technical ability to bring GA data into ASIAS. This project will also demonstrate the value of ASIAS to the GA pilot community and industry (associations, manufacturers, instructors, type clubs, etc.). To fully demonstrate the ASIAS capabilities for GA, ASIAS needs to collect safety information from voluntary safety reporting systems (digital flight data from Flight Operations Quality Assurance (FOQA)/ Flight Data Monitoring (FDM) programs, pilot and other safety reports, etc.). As part of the GA ASIAS Demonstration Project, pilots who voluntarily submit their flight data will do so through the National General Aviation Flight Information Database (NGAFID) which is maintained by the University of North Dakota. Pilots who VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:57 Mar 27, 2014 Jkt 232001 submit their data will be able to review information for their own flights through the NGAFID; however, a pilot may not access another pilot’s data. Additionally, the FAA will not have access to this data while it contains information identifying a pilot. De-identified data will be regularly transferred to ASIAS. In this deidentified state, the data cannot be linked to the specific pilot, aircraft, or flight. This de-identified data is then aggregated and used by the ASIAS community for safety purposes only. For the period of this project, data will be collected voluntarily from the GA community in the area surrounding Phoenix, Arizona. Volunteers who are based within a 40 nautical mile ring surrounding KPHX will be sought to participate in the demonstration project. Additional information can also be found at www.GAJSC.org. Enforcement Policy The ASIAS for GA Demonstration Project is an important safety initiative and the FAA supports and encourages wide participation. This document is issued in order to alleviate any concerns that any voluntarily submitted data may be used for enforcement purposes. The FAA recognizes that it is important to promote the voluntary submittal of data during the demonstration project. Therefore, none of the data that is being collected during this demonstration project will be accessed or otherwise used for any enforcement activities. Should an accident or incident occur involving a participant or nonparticipant in the demonstration project, standard FAA policy for accident or incident investigation will apply. Any data collected will derive solely from routine investigation procedures. No data that is voluntarily submitted in connection with the demonstration project will be accessed for an accident or incident investigation. The ASIAS for GA Demonstration Project will be in effect for one year beginning on the date of publication of this notice. Dated: Issued in Washington, DC on March 21, 2014. Michael G. Whitaker, Deputy Administrator.
