new FAA Safety Briefing out

Have you checked out the latest issue of FAA Safety Briefing? In addition to several internationally-themed feature stories, the issue’s departments also offer a wealth of helpful general aviation news and information.
In line with the issue’s focus on global topics, the Checklist department (p 27) explores the International Flight Information Manual - an important reference tool for those considering a flight beyond our borders; Jumpseat (p1) covers the importance of embracing Safety Management Systems (SMS) as “a means to think globally and act locally”; and FAA Faces (p 33) profiles Christopher Barks, manager of the FAA Office of International Affairs Western Hemisphere team.
Of interest to aircraft mechanics is this issue’s Nuts, Bolts, and Electrons department (p 28) which stresses the importance of purchasing and using certified parts.
