Jumpseat Safety Management Platform

Jumpseat SMS is a dynamic safety risk management tool that aids the operator to:

  • Identify Operational Trends that impact Safety.
  • Manage Safety Risk effectively.
  • Maintain oversight of its Operational Risk Profile

FAA has issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to expand the requirements for Safety Management System (SMS), once finalized, it would require all Part 135 certificate holders, Part 91.147 air tour operators and certain Part 21 Type Certificate (TC) and Production Certificate (PC) holders, no later than 24 months to implement an SMS. The expansion of requirements for SMS is also expected to include the scope of Part 145 Certificate holders in the near future.
