Our management team is proactive in evolving our Safety Management System (SMS) , and as the company grows, our Risk-Management Philosophy paves the way for a safe future.

Flight-Risk Assessment

Each flight crew has to fill out a flight-risk-assessment form to determine the level of risk of their flight. If the risk is above 29, they are required to advise Operations Control in order to come up with a mitigation plan to reduce the number below 29. If the number cannot safely be reduced to an acceptable level of risk (<29), the flight is a no-go. The medical team also has a risk-assessment form to determine their risk before flight.

Risk Control

Throughout the month, flight-risk scores are entered into a control chart. The control chart is custom-suited to track flight risk, plot it within a calculated threshold, and track the index (R-bar). The control chart calculates an average risk within an upper limit and a lower limit so we can see our threshold. The R-bar is the rolling difference between the upper limit and lower limit.

Safety Analyzer

When the Flight- and Medical-Risk Assessment is submitted, these two individual scores are posted to Aviation Control Charts and Medical Control Charts that plot the risk on a graph and calculate trends and risk threshold. Although separate, these two control charts give a visual presentation of safety risk on a daily basis for the company. Every week these monthly averages are posted to a safety analyzer tool called a Revalizer which shows the company’s current safety condition as a combined risk and safety level.

When safety reports are generated, they are inserted into the analyzer and each is given a weight so it can be calculated as part of the safety number.
