Global trip support specialist Universal Weather and Aviation (Booth 2611) has selected AviationManuals as the preferred Safety Management System (SMS) provider for its clients.

AviationManuals, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, supports more than half of all operators registered under the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operators (IS-BAO). The AviationManuals SMS software known as ARC is now available, along with SMS manual development services, via uvGO, Universal’s scheduling application and online tool that allows aircraft operators to plan, build and manage missions worldwide.

ARC is an iPad-friendly solution for submitting, storing and analyzing SMS data. It serves as a central location to store files, complete risk assessments and post company news as well as read, manage and initial logs. Through the integration, Universal can directly access ARC flight risk and hazard incident forms from the uvGO app.

 “We developed a new relationship with AviationManuals to help further drive down our clients’ operating risk by incorporating ARC seamlessly into uvGo,” said Denio Alvarado, Universal’s executive vice president of operations. “We chose AviationManuals because it is 100 percent dedicated to offering the latest in SMS technology and tools.”

“The integration between our ARC software and Universal’s uvGO app will greatly increase access to quality SMS for operators worldwide,” added AviationManuals president Mark Baier. —C.E.
