NO-NAME AIRLINES RISK MITIGATION BRIEFRisk Mitigation BriefAs the Director of Quality here at No-Name Airlines, my main goal is to efficiently andeffectively manage the Continuing Analysis and Surveillance System (CASS) program to ensurethat our fleet maintains airworthy aircraft. To do this I routinely evaluate and analyze ourmaintenance and inspection programs and then immediately correct any known deficiencies(Federal Aviation Administration [FAA], 2003a). In the event that an outside occurrence happensor if I suspect our maintenance program is not up to par and needs correction, I will develop astrategy to mitigate the risks involved with our organization. Thus, with the circumstancessurrounding Atlantic Southeast Airlines Flight 529, Embraer EMB-120RT, N256AS, I have takensuch evaluation and analyzation measures to safeguard our airline from repeating the same orsimilar events.Atlantic Southeast Flight 529On August 21, 1995 Atlantic Southeast Airlines flight 529, Embraer EMB-120RT,N256AS, crashed nearly 30 minutes after take-off from Atlanta Hartsfield International Airportin Atlanta, Georgia (FAA, n.d.). The crash of flight 529 resulted from the Embraer EMB-120RTaircraft losing a propeller blade in the left engine. With the in-flight separation of the propellerblade, the engine mount failed causing the propeller and gearbox to move to the left side of thewing (FAA, n.d.). The FAA’s (n.d.) final determination of the mishap was poor maintenanceprocedures which led to the propeller blade experiencing a fracture caused by a fatigue crackfrom numerous corrosion pits. Given that our fleet is comprised of the Embraer EMB-120RTaircraft, a risk mitigation strategy with the following reinforcement procedures are beingimplemented: offsite maintenance oversight, current evaluations, evaluation of past components,re-evaluation of current inspection programs, and examination of current operational parameters.2
