Annual aerospace safety meeting at SAC, Akkulam

Air Marshal B. Suresh, Air Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Southern Air Command (SAC), on Wednesday underlined the need to achieve zero aerospace safety violations in the SAC area of operations.

Aerospace safety should be taken up as the single most important ‘key result area,’ the Air Marshal said, addressing the annual aerospace safety meeting at Headquarters SAC at Akkulam here.

“The meeting provided a common platform for all key personnel involved in aviation. The primary aim of the meeting was to review the aerospace safety record of the period gone by and identify potential aerospace safety issues,” a defence spokesperson said in a statement.

The meeting discussed various preventive measures to reduce aerospace safety violations. All operations, maintenance and administrative issues directly affecting aviation were discussed, the spokesperson said.

The meeting was attended by Air Marshal S. Prabhakaran, Director General Inspection and Safety, Air Headquarters.
