Free webinar – safety and compliance document management for airlines

The delivery of a safe, quality service to customers is critically important in the high-tech aviation sector, where passengers have never had so much choice. A focus on quality and a safe, efficient passenger experience is what sets the most successful airlines apart. Efficient management of documentation plays a key role in successful delivery and has the added bonus of making regulatory compliance so much easier to achieve and safety audits easier to manage.

The importance of documentation

Arconics AeroDocs Platform - Change Tasks.gif
An airline’s documentation system must be a record of activities that are relevant to its quality management system and clearly linked to quality objectives. The documents must be in a usable format, controlled and continually reviewed, revised and improved. This is a complex task, particularly for an airline with a wide variety of complex documents and an organisational structure that may span the globe.

When the auditors call to check your documentation, they will look at a range of requirements:

  • Does your document system respond to the standard?
  • Is there consistency in naming conventions, look and feel, numbering and formatting?
  • Do the procedures describe what’s happening?
  • Is the documentation controlled?
  • Are all employees informed?
  • Are the procedures followed? By everyone? All the time?
  • Is there objective evidence that the procedures are being followed?

AeroDocs Airline Document Management System is designed to actively assist with all key audit requirements so that conformance with safety and other audits becomes a useful and productive element of management, no longer a time-consuming chore. Critically, AeroDocs is designed to be so easy to use, with an intuitively-designed front end hiding the complexity of a powerful XML editor at the back end.

IATA – Safety is Number One Priority

IATA, the International Air Transport Association, has identified safety as its number one priority and is committed to making flying even safer. IATA, which airlines join voluntarily, supports airline activity and helps formulate industry policy and standards along with the other regulatory bodies, from the UN’s ICAO, through the US FAA, the EU’s EASA and national CAAs. Safely connecting people and businesses continues to be IATA’s top priority. IATA works with airlines and industry partners in raising standards and implementing best practices. And the figures speak for themselves. Airlines who take part in IATA’s IOSA safety audit programme have, on average, 2.5 times less accidents than non-members.

A Dubliner’s View on Visiting the Carlsbad Campus

The Dublin sales and marketing team had a very successful week of meetings, workshops and strategic planning sessions at ViaSat Inc.’s corporate headquarters in Carlsbad, California last week. All eyes are on AIX 2017 (Hamburg, Germany, 4 – 6 April 2017), as a platform to tell the aviation world the compelling story of how ViaSat in-flight internet and onboard entertainment enables the accelerating trend towards personal device entertainment and complements our suite of operational apps.

More value for airlines

San-Diego-airport-Southwest.jpgThis is a big story, as you can tell. Luckily, the acquisition of Arconics by ViaSat brings together a wide selection of great people, skills and resources, plus a unified vision that helps bring us closer every day. The vision is all about delivering the best possible value to our customers and enabling the world’s greatest airlines to resolve a wide variety of challenges with in-flight internet, wireless IFE and operational apps.

ViaSat and Southern California

We flew to San Diego with Aer Lingus and United. The ViaSat campus is in Carlsbad, just a short drive north of San Diego, in a beautiful setting between the hills and the Pacific. We spent a lot of time with our colleagues in the Commercial Mobility, Aviation building, conveniently located next to Palomar Airport, so there’s
never a dull moment, with private jets and small aircraft flying by every few minutes. The team there is so welcoming, we felt right at home in seconds. Having a slide in the office to travel between floors helps too!

Over in the main building (one of over a dozen buildings on campus, with more in planning), we got to do some great work with the design team and met with really interesting people from many sections of the company. ViaSat’s ethos, and its focus on looking after its people, was evident in the details, from the rock music
playing from speakers on the palm tree-lined routes between buildings (we heard Thin Lizzy and U2 in the mix), to the on-tap orange juice and fresh-brewed coffee, to the incredible Hub, a place for ViaSat team members to connect, eat and relax in the sun. And the sun? We’d timed our visit well because, after having endured some days of rain and grey, our Californian friends brought the SoCal sun back for us. And it was just perfect.

Connecting apps and in-flight internet to deliver awesomeness

Aer-Lingus-San-Francisco-Arconics-ViaSat-Gary-Byrnes.jpgWe made super progress in planning how best we can work together over the coming years, to tell our incredible story to the airline industry. Watch this space (or sign up for our newsletter here) and we’ll keep you posted on the many awesome developments that are in the pipeline. And if I was to sum up California and ViaSat in one word, it would be that: Awesome.

Working on getting back to see the team at Carlsbad already…
