SMS Aviation Safety Management System Program
with Operations Manual
Does your Flight Department have a Safety Management Program for the ICAO States that require them? Does your Flight Department have an Emergency Response Plan?
“It’s important to understand that SMS is not a single event, but an unending process of identifying potential risks, taking action to mitigate those risks, and most importantly, documenting every step involved. And regular audits are required to make sure your SMS is compliant with ICAO/FAA/EASA standards, and that the SMS is being followed and documented by everyone involved.” Mac McClelland.
Please Note: ICAO has over 183 States and operators must comply with the requirements of each state, states that are actively enforcing the ICAO Operations Manual and SMS Program for 14 CFR 91 Operators are Canada, Africa, Europe, Anguilla, Bermuda, Caymans, British Vigin Islands, and the Turks & Caicos Islands. The EASA SAFA 54 Item Ramp Inspection Checklist also requires these program manuals to be audited during the ramp check and available on the aircraft.
Cost: based on size & complexity of each Client’s requirements.
Programs start at $2500.00 USD

Risk Mitigation: This Aviation SMS Program includes a Flight Operations Manual. Each Operator is provided with an interactive FRAT: Flight Risk Assessment Tool that allows operators and pilots on a per flight basis to assist in “GO/NO GO” decision prior to the flight, to see the risk profile of a flight in its planning stages, review the risk, and mitigate the risk to a lower risk value based on each operators acceptable risk profile. It includes a record keeping feature for compliance purposes.
Our SMS integrates control of risk into normal day-to-day business practice. Safety is managed as a “core business function” where the organization treats safety in the same way it manages other functions (e.g., financial, quality, marketing, etc). The components of our SMS Programs are:
- Policy. A management system with defined policies, procedures, and organizational structures that meets safety objectives. Policy component provides these elements
- Safety Risk Management (SRM). This component uses task analysis, hazard identification, risk analysis, and risk assessment to develop risk controls.
- Safety Assurance. The safety assurance component provides for system monitoring, measuring, assessment, and corrective action to assure the effectiveness of risk controls.
- Safety Promotion. The safety promotion component provides guidance for training and communication to promote safety as a core value in the organization.
Each SMS Program Includes the necessary forms for a comprehensive interactive Aviation Safety Management System. A partial list of Self-Audit, Gap Analysis, and SMS Tools that are included are as follows:
1.) Compliance Monitoring
