Gulfstream Aerospace has enrolled more than 140 aircraft in its Flight Operations Risk Management Service (Forms) program, providing operators with access to data that can reduce operational hazards. Among its benefits, Forms data can be used to analyze airport-specific approach procedures that can challenge pilots. The larger the Forms database becomes, the better Gulfstream is able to identify trends and implement corrective measures through education and training, it said. Gulfstream’s Forms database now includes operational details on more than 25,000 flights.
