ARINC Direct and Polaris Partner to Bring Vector SMS Safety Management System to their Flight Support Services Packages
Leading provider of flight support services solutions for business aviation, ARINC Direct, has announced the launch of Vector SMS, a quality and Safety Management System (SMS) that will improve operational efficiency and enhance flight safety.
The solution, brought via third party ARINC partner, Polaris, will be demonstrated at the NBAA Annual Meeting and Convention in Las Vegas later this year.
Vector SMS will be a critical addition to ARINC Direct’s flight support services, enabling flight departments compliance with SMS standards, such as IS-BAO and ICAO, with swift efficiency. With a service designed for the needs of flight departments of any size on a subscription basis, it is a cost-effective solution for the implementation of a safety management system.
“SMS is becoming a standard throughout the aviation industry worldwide,” said Bob Richard, Vice President of ARINC Direct. “ARINC, along with our partner Polaris, is leading the industry in providing organizations with a comprehensive safety management program that truly represents the next step in the evolution of safety in aviation.”
“Polaris Aero’s continued partnership with ARINC Direct will greatly increase the awareness and acceptance of SMS among flight departments,” said Christopher Connor at Polaris Aero. “We are excited to provide a rich set of SMS functionality to ARINC Direct, a company that continues to drive innovative flight planning solutions in our industry.”
