Safety Management System (SMS) | What is This All About? | Definition, Implementation

A safety workshop introducing the process in system safety, safety management and aviation risk mitigation.

SMS is all about decision-making in safety. Thus it has to be a decision-maker's tool, not a traditional safety program separate and distinct from business and operational decision making.

But it’s the 800 lb. gorilla in the room: All ICAO, (International Civil Aviation Organization) members, are required to implement a Safety Management System (SMS). The FAA filed a “difference” with ICAO detailing that it is not currently in full compliance with the ICAO requirement, but is considering SMS rule making. PART 121 got launched, but what’s with the Part 21, 119, 131, 125, 135, 141, 142 and 145 certificate holders?

This workshop should give you some insight:

  1. Overview of Aviation Safety Management Systems & Change Management
  2. Who needs to implement?
  3. How to implement?
  4. When?
  5. An example of SMS for PART 91 and PART 135

So, you want to become a safe ‘PART 135’ pilot? | Flying People and/or Products for Hire

A 'SAFETY' assessment of one of aviation's most challenging assignments as a Pro-pilot.

If you as a pilot, consider going PRO, the FAA and your future employer will have some expectations. This workshop can help assess yourself and will offer some tools for you own risk management.

This workshop will help you to determine if you are ready for the challenge of flying people and/or products for hire or what is called flying Part 135. FAR PART 135 flying puts a pair of epaulets, lots of pressure and quite a few responsibilities onto your shoulders:

  1. Pilot qualification, skills and social intelligence;
  2. Apply and interview with the right carrier;
  3. Aviation English: TRNGMAN, GOM, GMM, 8410, 135.293, 135.299, ...?;
  4. Your check-ride and who's flying;
  5. Your first passenger is not your last concern.

A 70 minutes multimedia presentation packed with valuable information.

How Safe is A Safety Pilot?

Choosing a competent and pleasant safety pilot isn't easy! A safety-insight from a professional mentor-pilot.

We all know the scenario: best friends, both pilots and both go fly. This could be the beginning of a lifetime friendship or an epic 'crash-and-burn'.

This workshop may offer some strategies to keep your aircraft safely airborne and friendships sanely alive:

  1. - what is a safety pilot?
  2. - how do YOU qualify someone as a Safety Pilot?
  3. - does a Safety Pilot need a license?
  4. - do you trust your Safety Pilot?
  5. - who is PIC?
  6. - my plane, your plane? (who is flying when?)
  7. - things you should discuss, but you don't ...

TurboProp Safety Series | Piston to Turbine – TRANSITION | FLY-IN EVENT | 05/01/2014

05/01/2014 | 06:00PM - 08:00PM

Thinking of a transition from piston into a turboprop aircraft? Aircraft owners and pilots who move up to larger more complicated twins, turbines, or turboprop aircraft will often find that flying has gotten easier while aircraft-handling is more complex.

This workshop will cover what a future turbine pilot has to expect while advancing:

  • Performance of common make and models;
  • In-flight characteristics and aircraft handling;
  • Change in SAFETY procedures;
  • Training requirements;
  • Insurance requirements;
  • Extra endorsements, certificates and/or training;
  • Average cost of owning and flying a turboprop;

A 90 minutes multimedia presentation packed with valuable information.

Speaker: William Pass | Training Captain



Complementary refreshments and snacks will be served.
