More and more customers and international authorities are asking for safety management systems from Aircraft Electronics Association members.
To satisfy their needs, the AEA has developed a proprietary SMS program designed for maintenance organizations, sized for small businesses and leveraged by the 900-strong repair station membership. This program has been coordinated with the Federal Aviation Administration and Transport Canada Civil Aviation, as well as discussions with the Australian government's Civil Aviation Safety Authority and the European Aviation Safety Agency for future acceptance.
Presented by Ric Peri, AEA vice president of government and industry affairs, the training will provide a solid overview of modern safety principles, the International Civil Aviation Organization guidance on SMS implementation and the use and operation of the proprietary AEA SMS program. This training program is mandatory for a repair station's accountable manager or SMS coordinator (if designated) in order to enroll a repair station in the AEA SMS program.
