Jet Aviation and GE Aviation have signed a long-term agreement for a safety and fleet modernisation project including C-FOQA.
The programme covers Jet Aviation’s global fleet of some 300 aircraft including Airbus, Boeing BBJ, Bombardier, Dassault, Gulfstream and more.
“The partnership with GE Aviation and their C-FOQA Flight Efficiency Services data analytics marks a continued commitment Jet Aviation has in the support of our flight operations, our flight crews and, most importantly, our customers,” said Don Haloburdo, vice president of flight services at Jet Aviation.
FOQA (Flight Operations Quality Assurance), also commonly referred to as FDM (Flight Data Monitoring), is the process of analysing and reviewing routinely recorded flight data.
Airlines and operators that adopt FOQA are better able to identify and eliminate potential safety hazards in flight operations.
Andrew Coleman, chief commercial officer for GE Aviation’s digital group, said: “Jet Aviation puts safety as a top priority for its business and its clients.
“Our teams are working together to implement a leading FOQA safety solution and support services across Jet Aviation’s fleet to continue promoting safety across our industry.”
David Dalpiaz, senior director, operations and technical services, Jet Aviation, added: “GE Aviation’s CFOQA program is an integral tool utilised by Jet Aviation to ensure our training programmes and operating policies are not only delivering upon the most stringent principles of safety and efficiency in the industry, but are setting new standards of excellence for the years ahead.”
Launched in 2015 in partnership with the Flight Safety Foundation and now used by more than 300 operators globally, C-FOQA is GE Aviation’s service for helping business jet operators understand and improve safety.
