The Dirty Dozen Edition

This edition is focused on the Dirty Dozen. They were originally developed by Gordon Dupont while he was working for Transport Canada and also used by the FAA to promote maintenance safety. They are well know by many people in aviation and a great way to get into some of the more human and organisational aspects of managing risks. 

A huge thanks to Nuno Aghdassi and Jose Figueiredo from the Portuguese Accident Investigation Authority (GPIAAF) for their support and inspiration with the concept for this edition of the magazine. Also thanks to Claudio Marturano and all the team at T-C Alliance for their work putting the magazine together. 

If you are new to the magazine, it is set as the magazine of an imaginary airline called Safewings. Our aim is to talk about the risk mitigations needed to ensure safe and effective operations. We also try to highlight the importance of collaboration between all the different stakeholders in the aviation system.
