How does it work?
This is a generic aircraft mishap response guide and checklist. It is not intended to be all encompassing but rather it provides the minimum essential elements that apply to most aviation mishaps. You must tailor this app to your own organization, mission, and operational location.
All personnel involved in aviation operations should be familiar with the Aviation Mishap Response Guide and Checklist. Ensure that your plan is up-to-date. It must be verified a minimum of annually AND prior to operations conducted in new locations.
The absolute best way to be prepared for the unexpected is to periodically practice your Aviation Mishap Response Plan. Coordinate in advance and get as many responders as possible to participate when you conduct a training drill.
Do not waste time trying to figure out if an event is an accident, that’s not your job. If you have an event with an aircraft that results in damage or injury no matter how slight. REPORT IT to DOI or USFS.
