CASW: FOD Free Friday
Did you know that the smallest items of loose debris such as pens, baggage locks or screws have the potential to cause serious safety risks to an airplane and runway operations? You may also be surprised to learn that the cost to repair a Foreign Object Debris (FOD) damaged aircraft engine can easily exceed $1 million dollars. So if you See Something and can’t remove it yourself, Say Something.
Cap off Safety Week and learn about FOD prevention while walking on the aprons, followed by a pizza party for participants over at Signature Aviation. Transportation will be provided.
Maximum of 50 spots are available, so sign up click here.
