Constant Aviation announced that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has recognized it as having a single, corporatewide Safety Management System (SMS), making it only the second maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) so designated.
Achieving FAA-Accepted Corporate SMS status means that Constant is operating under a single safety system companywide, which generally reduces safety risk.
“The improvements throughout our organization because of SMS implementation are clear, as evidenced by this latest recognition by the FAA,” said David H. Davies, CEO, Constant Aviation. “This honor underscores that we are a leader in moving from a reactive safety culture to one that is highly proactive, continuously improving and dynamically driving safety organization-wide.”
SMS is the standard for safety programs in aviation worldwide. Although SMS processes are optional for MROs such as Constant, they are seen as highly beneficial and frequently are requested by both domestic customers and foreign certificate holders.
