Abstract : This report provides a methodology for aviation organizations to follow in developing a self-regulatory program through the implementation of safe operating practices. The objective of this guideline is to improve safety within segments of the aviation industry by establishing recommended practices for training, operations and procedures. The efforts of the National EMS Pilots Association are used to illustrate the implementation and effectiveness of this type of program in building cohesion among operators and adopting consensus based Recommended Practices (RPs) for the industry to follow. Steps towards creating similar programs are provided along with the summarized RPs adopted to date by NEMSPA. 'Developing Recommended Practices to Ensure Industry Safety' resulted from the culmination of %o years of meetings among members of the National EMS Pilots Association. The purpose of these meetings was to establish and adopt industry guidelines and operating practices to improve safety and avert federal regulation. The project and its products set the tone and framework for other industries in working to provide a safer operating environment and context for its pilots and the public. This project has been sponsored jointly by the National EMS Pilots Association (NENISPA) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) with the endorsement of the Helicopter Association International. The FAA's contractor, Advanced Aviation Concepts, Inc. was responsible for helping NEMSPA create, direct and monitoring this important project through all its phases, beginning in 1993. This Summary is provided to give the reader an understanding of the industry's objectives in establishing a form of self regulation and the accomplishments of the organization in achieving that goal.
