|Publication Date:||31 August 2018|
Purpose: This issuance establishes policy, assigns responsibilities, and provides direction for developing, implementing, and maintaining the AHIRAPs of military flight operations quality assurance (MFOQA), Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP), and line operations safety audit (LOSA) in accordance with the authority in Department of Defense Directive (DoDD) 5134.01 and the guidance in DoDD 4715.1E.

This issuance applies to OSD, the Military Departments, the Office of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Joint Staff, the National Guard Bureau, the Combatant Commands, the Office of the Inspector General of the Department of Defense, the Defense Agencies, the DoD Field Activities, and all other organizational entities within the DoD (referred to collectively in this issuance as the "DoD Components").
