The Role of the Advisory Boards

Home / About Us / CHIRP Aviation Programmes / 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 for discussion.  

The composition 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.
