C-FOQA Recording
DFDR supplies the data stream
Quick Access Recorder (QAR) records
data stream on a scandisk card
 Data is transmitted to FDS for processing
 Pilots provide supplemental data about
events


C-FOQA Benefits
SMS program enhancement
 IBAC recommendation
 Insurance rate reduction

Data Review

FOQA events are reviewed by the
Safety Officer for the following issues:


Safety
SOPs
Training
Flight Standards
Quality Assurance
Maintenance
The Basics
Review process must be fair and just!
 Data must be used in a non-punitive
environment!
 Review process must not fall into the
blame culture that often permeates our
industry!

FOQA Will Identify Safety Problems

Pilots provide only subjective data based
on their perceptions and experiences and
often report this only when absolutely
necessary
FOQA reports objective, quantitative data
on what occurred during a flight
 FOQA yields precise, unbiased information
for evaluation
 FOQA is not based on just perceived
problems or risks; it looks at all parameters

Big Brother?
Perhaps
FOQA is used to identify suspected
problems
 Unknown problems!
 FAR, AFM, SOP noncompliance

Resulting in a proactive safety culture to
facilitate fixing problems before they
become critical through :



Training
SOPs
Engine and systems monitoring
Chief Pilot Issues Identified by
C-FOQA

FAR violations
Non adherence to SOPs
Non adherence to AFM/AOM
Flying outside the box
Rogue behavior
Sloppy flying (training/performance issues)
○ Speed control
○ Bank control
○ Pitch control
○ Non stabilized approach
Stabilized Approaches
TOD
 ROD below 1000’ AFE
 LOC/GS/GP tolerances
 EGPWS alerts
 Secondary flight controls over speed
 High energy approach and landings
 Long landings
 High energy braking

Event Review Process



Safety Officer receives an e-mail generated by FDS with
the basic details of an event
Service provider web site expands on the event
FOQA data is then reviewed event by event for outliers
and trends
Events are broken down into seconds pre and post





Pilots are expected to file an outlier event report
Generally they will beat themselves up, they get it
Others seem oblivious, they need to get it
A peer (line pilot) will then hold an interview if appropriate
If a serious event occurs or there is a stalemate the Chief Pilot
will take over

All data is de-identified
 Ops Managers do not have open access
to the individuals involved
 Only 3 people have access to the actual
event data at HPA
 Outliers are generally verified by the
service provider
