The Safety, Operations and Airworthiness Reporting (SOAR) system was developed by GFA to facilitate the reporting of accidents and incidents that occur in the operation of an aircraft (Operations Occurrences), defects discovered during aircraft maintenance (airworthiness defects), and other accidents and incidents that occur around an airfield that are dealt with under the Club’s Risk Management Plan (Safety Reports). This system is based on best practice reporting in order to facilitate an open reporting culture. It allows the confidential handling of information and provides greater insight to the safety risks present in our organisation.
This document explains how to complete a ‘New Operations Occurrence Report.
Accidents and incidents that occur during the operation of an aircraft are ‘Operations Occurrences’. This includes occurrences during flight, while taxying or ground-handling, or during the pre-flight Inspection in readiness for flight.
NOTE: Airworthiness issues identified during the operation of an aircraft should be recorded as an ‘Operations Occurrence’. The Airworthiness Department will be notified separately by the EM/O.
