Since introducing HAI’s SMS program to members last year, HAI has expanded this tool chest of safety products to include a scalable SMS program for helicopter operators, an aviation safety action program (ASAP), a flight risk assessment tool (FRAT), and now the SMS program for aviation maintenance.
“We couldn’t be happier working with AEA in providing their proven, standardized SMS maintenance program to the teams that turn the wrenches,” said James Viola, President and CEO of HAI. “AEA is an established, reputable organization, and we recognize that they also have the same goal we do – to reduce aviation accidents. We are proud to collaborate with them in offering their program to our members.”
Developing robust safety programs
Last fall, HAI announced a partnership with Air Charter Safety Foundation to make their ASAP program available to HAI members. HAI then introduced a software-based SMS program to its members through WYVERN, Air Charter Safety Foundation, and Baldwin Safety and Compliance. During HAI HELI-EXPO, HAI announced the partnership with Swiss-based NGFT Solutions to offer the all-new FRAT module to HAI members.
“Our members requested assistance in developing more robust safety programs,” said Viola. “In less than a year, our team has developed relationships with some of the finest, most respected names in aviation safety. Combined, this tool chest offers some of the most needed tools available for improving safety programs at any size business.”
