Weekly Safety Focus: the Double Check!


Given the complex and interconnected nature of aircraft components, even minor mistakes can have catastrophic consequences. Double-checking ensures that all procedures have been executed correctly, parts have been installed accurately, and systems have been tested thoroughly. In an industry where safety is non-negotiable, the act of double-checking serves as an essential quality control measure, providing an additional layer of assurance that the aircraft is in optimal condition.


We double check all the work being done in the shop, from big stuff like engine installs, but also minor repairs like tire changes. In our facility where apprentices are training, licensed A&P's follow behind them, not only teaching but ensuring that every task has been completed to standard. Moreover, our mechanics check EACH OTHER'S work, acknowledging that no one is infallible, and that double-checking not only serves as a safeguard against potential errors, but also sharpens their mastery of the craft.
