Boeing linking India and Southern California for SMS training

Posted 29 April 2021 · Add Comment

U.S. air-framer Boeing has partnered with the Indian Aviation Academy (IAA) and the University of Southern California (USC) for safety management system training to all stakeholders in the domestic aviation industry.

Commercial aircraft operators, airports and air traffic services are required to have a safety management system (SMS), as per the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) requirement. It is considered a best practice to provide a framework for hazard identification, risk mitigation and promotion of a positive safety culture.

This is a first of a series of trainings that Boeing plans to organise for India’s aviation ecosystem towards continued learning of best practices.

Boeing is adopting these practices as it implements an enterprise SMS to support its commitment to the highest levels of safety and quality with its products and services. “As part of our continued commitment to safety, we are collaborating with India’s civil aviation stakeholders to promote a collaborative safety culture. We have partnered with IAA and USC to introduce the SMS programme to India:” said Salil Gupte, President of Boeing India.

The USC-IAA program for India’s civil aviation authorities focuses on modern safety management and safety assurance concepts such as risk management, root cause analysis, audits, data collection and incident investigations to further enhance the safety, efficiency, and reliability of the country’s aviation ecosystem.

“Safety first should be the mainstay of aviation; not just in words, but to live by them. True safety will be through training like this one and by implementing lessons learnt into action. There is no simple solution out there waiting to be discovered – but training and action:” said Hareendranathan E.P, Executive Director, Indian Aviation Academy (IAA).
IAA has carved a niche on aviation horizon as a premier aviation training institute in Asia- Pacific region, fostering a culture of continuous learning. It is a joint civil aviation training academy of the Airports Authority of India, Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) and Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS).

“The introduction of SMS is the most significant development of aviation safety of the decade. It applies to all major operational aviation entities and draws upon the power of communication and data to identify potentially hazardous situations:” Thomas R Anthony, Director of USC’s Aviation Safety and Security Program, said.
A full member of International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO – the apex body in Aviation) TRAINAIR PLUS (TPP) program, IAA has collaboration with IATA, ACI, AAAE and reputed management institutes to host international and national training programs on various aviation courses i.e. Aviation Management; Airport operation management; Aviation safety and security; Airport cargo management; Airport engineering and licensing; airport finance and commercial management etc.

The academy has a pool of competent, trained and ICAO certified instructors, course developers, training managers to achieve its aspired objectives.
