Aviation insurance underwriter USAIG (Booth No. N1916) is highlighting additions and improvements to its Performance Vector aircraft operator safety initiative, which focuses on human factors elements that may lead to aviation accidents.

USAIG expanded the program’s individual course offerings to five with the addition of a 200-level Pilot Reliability Certification (PRC) online course. The new online program complements the existing 100-level PRC, Line Service Training, Maintenance Reliability and Z-Coach fatigue management programs. New “Contemporary Human Factors” and “Mind-Body Link to Safety” webinar series are also available for group presentations.

Performance Vector subscription software offerings have also been expanded with a new System for Aircrew Fatigue Evaluation (SAFE) Tool, which continually monitors flight schedules and highlights potential risks for fatigue.

“We constantly seek new opportunities to strengthen our clients’ existing safety programs,” said Paul Ratté, director of aviation safety programs at USAIG. “Performance Vector is available to any USAIG-insured operator of turbine aircraft and is highly applicable to helicopter operators.”

Performance Vector is also available to eligible customers of USAIG’s AeroComp workers compensation program, which was launched January 1.
