/ The Role of the Advisory Boards
There are four
Aviation Advisory Boards; Air Transport (ATAB), General Aviation (GAAB), Cabin
Crew (CCAB) and Drone/UAS (DUASAB). The Advisory Boards are comprised of
nominees from the principal relevant aviation interests in the UK alongside
experienced independent members with extensive aviation backgrounds who also
provide their specialist expertise in the understanding and resolution of associated
Human, Organisational, Environmental and Technical/Equipment Factors.
The role of the Advisory Boards is to review reports and issues
raised through the Programme and to provide counsel on the most
appropriate way in which specific issues might be resolved. The Chairs
of the Advisory Boards also provide feedback on the performance of the
Programme to the Trustees at quarterly intervals.
The Advisory Boards act as a panel of peers with members participating as
individual expert advisers in their own right as opposed to formally representing
their sponsoring/parent companies and organisations. Report information
is submitted to the Advisory Boards by the CHIRP Secretariat on a strictly
confidential basis wherein all reporters’ personal details and any identifying
circumstances or locations are deleted from reports prior to their submission
of the Boards are reviewed regularly to ensure that the membership
is appropriate to the scope of the Programme and retains relevant
current operational expertise.
