Safety is priority in Jet Aviation deal with GE Aviation

Posted 24 October 2019 · Add Comment

Jet Aviation and GE Aviation have signed a long-term agreement for a comprehensive safety and fleet modernisation project including C-FOQATM.

 

The programme covers Jet Aviation’s global fleet of some 300 aircraft including the Airbus, Boeing BBJ, Bombardier, Dassault, and Gulfstream.

“The partnership with GE Aviation and their C-FOQA Flight Efficiency Services data analytics marks a continued commitment Jet Aviation has in the support of our flight operations, our flight crews and, most importantly, our customers,” said Don Haloburdo, vice president, Flight Services, Jet Aviation. “Because safety will always be our top priority, we’ve chosen to work with the industry leader.”

FOQA (Flight Operations Quality Assurance), also commonly referred to as FDM (Flight Data Monitoring), is the process of analysing and reviewing routinely recorded flight data. Airlines and operators that adopt FOQA are better able to identify and eliminate potential safety hazards in flight operations.

“Jet Aviation puts safety as a top priority for its business and its clients,” said Andrew Coleman, chief commercial officer for GE Aviation’s Digital Group. “Our teams are working together to implement a leading FOQA safety solution and support services across Jet Aviation’s fleet to continue promoting safety across our industry.”

David Dalpiaz, senior director, operations and technical services, Jet Aviation, added: “GE Aviation’s C- FOQA program is an integral tool utilised by Jet Aviation to ensure our training programs and operating policies are not only delivering upon the most stringent principles of safety and efficiency in the industry, but are setting new standards of excellence for the years ahead. GE Aviation's C-FOQA program allows us to carry this to a new level.”
