Maximize Your Flight Risk Assessment Tool: Strengths, Weaknesses and Opportunities
Track: Aircraft & Flight Operations
Location: Orange County Convention Center
Room: S320GH
Presented by: Pete Agur, The VanAllen Group

Flight Risk Assessment Tools (FRAT) are very important in support of the management of operational risks, and much more. The second generation of FRATs has entered into the marketplace. They are the software evolution of the first generation hard-copy models that were integral elements of the initial Safety Management Systems (SMS) protocols and resources. The goal of the study was to accelerate the evolution of FRATs. The sooner FRATs are easier to use and capable of providing provide better information, the more impact they will create. The information gathered from this study is specifically applicable to helping commercial FRAT developers, as well as in-house operations, maximize the improvement of the tools and their benefits.
