Gulfstream says its flight-data monitoring/flight operational quality assurance program “is already making a difference in safety to operators.” Introduced last year, the aircraft manufacturer’s flight operations risk management service (Forms) increases operational safety by measuring exposure to known risks, such as unstable approaches, system operating limits and adverse runway operations. Forms records data when defined takeoff, climb, cruise, descent, approach and landing parameters have been exceeded.

It then identifies and analyzes the conditions present during the event and provides a summary to the operator and consolidated fleet data to Gulfstream. FlightSafety International is working with Gulfstream on this initiative and will incorporate feedback from Forms in training sessions. Forms is currently available for all in-production large-cabin Gulfstreams, as well as the GIV and GV.
