    FAA Accident Prevention Office (APO) consolidates the resources of the FAA's Offices of Accident Investigation and Safety Analytical Services.  The best modern-day tool for accident prevention is finding precursors to accidents--which lie in data taken from programs such as the Aviation Safety Action Programs. The FAA's Aviation Safety Information Analysis and Sharing (ASIAS) program gathers such data from more than 73 U.S. commercial operators. The new APO will collect this data to identify precursors, and use the information to find ways of preventing accidents.
