Thomas Zerbarini's Experience:

  • Airline Pilot at ASA

    Captain on the CRJ 900/700, CRJ200 and EMB 120 for scheduled domestic and international FAR Part 121 airline. Previously served as First Officer on CRJ 700 and EMB 120. As a professional pilot advocate, I strive to exemplify aviation safety, professionalism and the importance of maintaining a personal code of ethics. During my tenure at ASA, I have been recognized as an ambassador and a key speaker for the FAA’s 2009 Call-To-Action Safety Road Show in Atlanta, GA. During this event we discussed the importance of professionalism, risk assessment and how it contributes to aviation safety. As a result of these road shows, the FAA and participating airlines developed additional safety policies to identify and reduce risk associated with pilot experience and proficiency. later that year, I participated in the creation of special programs at ASA. I was an instrumental part of drafting the FAA mandated Pilot Observation Program in an effort to identify and monitor certain risk factors with low experience aviation professionals. This resulted in the creation of an Observation Policy for low experience pilots and pilots with past training issues. The policy allowed us to identify risks early on and develop a pilot specific training program to bring pilots to optimum proficiency. In 2007-2009 I sat on the weekly "Departure-zero" panel as a participant to recognize and recommend changes to operational practices that would increase on-time performance. As a result, numerous changes and practices were implemented which included Crew Snack Boxes, Auto-Boarding, ACARS Performance/Analysis, ACARS Delay Code Reporting, Gate Agent Briefings, and so on.
