HKARMS organised another full house event.

HKARMS Ms Lisa Shi presented a token of appreciation to Mr Michael Kelly

The Aerospace Industry is composed of multiple communities each of which has their own unique views on the topics of risk and safety. The practice and implementation of risk and safety in these communities varies according to the role each of these have in the broader industry. Different practices and guidance developed in response to the challenges and needs of these communities. Even with these differences there exist many common principles which can provide a basis of understanding for each of these communities to understand the perspective and practice of the others. The seminar will focus on the speaker’s experiences implementing risk and safety activities across several of these communities, in particular, the maintenance community, the flight test community and the space launch community.

Within the US Air Force aircraft maintenance officers are responsible ensuring compliance with all Technical Orders and policy guidance in order to provide safe and effective repair and sortie generation activities. The maintenance officer ensures that repairs are accomplished in a manner that doesn’t risk the safety of the people who work on the aircraft or the aircrew who will fly the aircraft. Flight test by its very nature is inherently dangerous because it requires attempting things never before attempted on an aircraft. Through disciplined technical and safety planning activities the test personnel take aircraft to the limits of their performance and determine how those aircraft can be safely operated by the rest of the Air Force. Finally, space launch community safety and risk concerns are magnified by only having one opportunity to get everything “right” once a rocket is launched.

Mr. Michael Kelly is an Aerospace and Defense Industry professional with over 15 years’ experience in commercial aviation and the United States Air Force. Michael’s experience includes designing aircraft maintenance trainers, managing several aircraft maintenance units, conducting flight test on US and Iraqi aircraft and managing systems engineering and program management activities on the US Air Force’s primary space launch program. He was responsible for implementing test safety activities and for overseeing the writing and implementation of the risk management plan for the Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle program. Michael is currently transitioning out of the US military into a civilian career.
