Business aviation is booming. According to the General
Aviation Manufacturing Association, business jet sales are on the rise. Corporate
flight departments will continue to grow and the number of flights and flight
hours within the business aviation fleet will continue to climb. With these
growing figures comes the mounting need for robust systems to help maintain a
high level of safety and efficiency. Our FltPlan.com Safety Management System
(SMS) services were designed to help flight departments, fleets and aircraft
operators promote and maintain a safety-focused culture on multiple levels and
to help manage any risks that may arise with flight operations.
The FAA is emphasizing the importance of safety-focused
decision making. A robust SMS establishes processes, methods and
decision-making approaches for each individual within a flight department — including
aircraft technicians, pilots and management — to not only help foster a
safety-focused culture, but also to create procedural efficiencies that result
in cost savings.
Our SMS premium services within FltPlan.com provide flight departments with the tools needed to comply with the requirements of FAA Advisory AC120-92a, ICAO and IBAC’s IS-BAO. It easily blends with your FltPlan account to allow easy entry and retrieval of weather briefings and flight risk assessment tools (FRATs) to help make better-informed decisions throughout the organization. Additionally, all records and documents within the FltPlan.com safety management system can be stored on our secure servers, be accessed online by everyone on your team or shown to inspectors anywhere in the world.
Flight Risk Assessment Tool (FRAT)
Every flight has a certain degree of risk. Factors such as
time of flight, weather conditions and recent crew workload can affect the
level of risk on any given flight. Our FRAT is designed to help evaluate the
risk level and make an informed decision. The FRAT features include:
When it comes to the decision-making process, information is paramount. FltPlan.com SMS services can help your flight department manage, maintain and evaluate this information in a user-friendly and convenient way. These FltPlan.com services are designed for every member within an organization, not just pilots and management. For more information about SMS and FltPlan premium services, visit FltPlan.com/aboutus.
