Safety management systems (SMS) for airports are proactive, risk-based, and data driven approaches to airport safety that have been adopted by airports around the world as a better way of approaching airport safety. In advance of the FAA’s publication of final rule regarding airport SMS, ACI-NA and AAAE will be holding a two day workshop to discuss how to get started with an SMS program, get information you can use from early SMS adopters, and get the latest from the FAA about the status of their existing and pending SMS programs and regulations. 

In addition to the workshop, we are working with the City of Chicago Department of Aviation officials to conduct an airfield tour on the morning of Thursday, August 9, 2018. Additional information will be sent to all attendees.
