  • How SMS can change the way you operate for the better

    SMS is mainly known as a way to identify hazards faced by an operator and to analyze the associated risks. The mitigation measures developed to eliminate the hazards or to manage the risks to an acceptable level are then incorporated into programs, systems, processes and procedures established by the operator. Through their safety assurance processes, the operator then tracks these to ensure that they are appropriate and effective.
    This session will teach the participants the basics of SMS and help them to understand the function, role, and importance of developing and implementing a Safety Management System (SMS). 


  • Fuel Contamination, how to prevent this kind of incident to happen at your location

    Recently, two accidents involving fuel contamination by diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) happened in the US. 
    This highlighted the risks of fuel contamination for aircraft operators, fixed-base operators (FBOs) and fuel suppliers. 
    Familiarize yourself with the risk of Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) contamination and the events that have occurred to date by attending this training session.

  • Towing basics, are you pulling your weight?

    One of the riskiest phases of ground operations is aircraft towing. Incidents during this phase often result in expensive damages to the airframe and ground the aircraft for long periods. Ground damage events usually do not occur for a single reason but are rather a combination of errors or violations, latent factors and specific circumstances.
    While ground damage incidents cannot be eliminated, their number can be reduced and their impact on the safety of subsequent operations can be mitigated.
    Attend this training session and learn how industry standards and best practices can help you reduce this type of incidents.

  • Fuel saving strategies: strategies and techniques

    Representing close to 30% of all Direct Operating Cost, fuel is one of the largest expenditures in operations and therefore an important component in the management of a fleet.
    Aviation fuel uplifts and planning for them are day-to-day activities for flight departments, pilots, and schedulers and dispatchers. 
    Aviation fuel prices may vary depending on the location but upon your chosen method of fuel delivery and payment. 
    In this session you will learn about the technical aspects of jet fuel so that you can monitor the quality and specifications of the fuel, examine the pricing formulas and pricing structure to enable operators to choose the right supplier in a particular location, and fuel suppliers to better understand the priorities of the operators.
