ARG/US Tapped by NBAA as SMS Training Partner
Specialized aviation services company Aviation Research Group/U.S. (ARG/US) has been selected by NBAA as a vendor partner for the association’s new safety management systems (SMS) training classes. “ARG/US has significant experience in all aspects of safety management,” according to ARG/US president and CEO Joe Moeggenberg. “We have been conducting our own SMS training courses for business aviation operators for the past two years, [and] are very pleased that NBAA is integrating this key topic into its professional development courses.” Baldwin Aviation and AeronomX are also partnering with NBAA on SMS workshops. The NBAA SMS training program will include two workshops: “Introduction to SMS,” a two-day event that covers the basics of aviation safety and SMS concepts, and “The SMS Toolkit,” which is designed to address the SMS implementation and development process. Both workshops will use learning objectives and materials developed by the International Business Aviation Council and will focus on SMS processes and the SMS toolkit that is the core of the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO). ARG/US also offers several free reports that focus on promoting and understanding SMS within a business aviation flight operation.
