The global community of airport safety professionals has benefited from an Airports Council International (ACI) initiative that harnesses the interpersonal dynamics of their peer group. ACI’s Airport Excellence (APEX) in Safety program conducts peer safety reviews in which safety partner airport volunteers — joined by subject matter experts from other aviation stakeholder entities — lend specialized expertise and problem-solving experience to a host airport (ASW, 4/12). This year, a new phase of the program aims to refine identification of airport safety trends and to disseminate specific lessons learned beyond the host airports.
