imageALPA Canada Board President Addresses Safety, Security Concerns with Parliament

April 27, 2010 - ALPA Canada Board president Capt. Dan Adamus (JAZ) today discussed Safety Management Systems (SMS) and the Association’s top security concerns with members of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Transport, Infrastructure, and Communities (TRAN). Pursuant to Standing Order 108(2) and a motion adopted on March 25, the Committee has commenced a study to assess aviation safety and security in Canada.

“ALPA has embraced SMS as the next great leap forward in advancing aviation safety,” said Adamus. However, he also noted that ALPA supports Transport Canada’s decision to delay implementation of SMS for 703 and 704 operators.
