New Year, New (Safer) Operations

It’s a common myth that SMS is only for large, complex operators who have abundant resources to support and maintain a complicated safety system. The fact is that an SMS by its nature is scalable and can be applied to any size operation, from a major airline to a single pilot. To find out how an SMS works and how adopting a personal system can help improve your flight safety, see the article “New Year, New (Safer) Operations, A Closer Look at Personal SMS” at medium.com/faa/new-year-new-safer-operations-32d5e5554e43 in the Jan/Feb 2024 issue of FAA Safety Briefing.
