Safety Management Systems for Business Aviation


Safety Management Systems are becoming increasingly common among business aircraft operators. As the business aviation industry continues to improve its level of safety and efficiencies, it will be important for operators of business aircraft to adapt their Safety Management System to their unique operational needs. Properly implementing and maintaining a Safety Management System will be an integral part of a business aviation department’s operations. An exploratory single case study, focusing on how an increase in safety is perceived by implementing a safety management system in a business aviation operation, was conducted and will be explained in this paper. The proposed research will target business aviation operators to measure the level of perceived safety enhancements obtained by the implementation of a Safety Management System. The key outcome of this meta-analysis study can be adopted by any business aircraft operator to help effectively utilize a safety management system and gain the maximum possible safety enhancements.
