Our Commitment and Responsibility

Safety is our first priority in all our activities.

We are committed to developing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving strategies and processes to guarantee that all our training activities are conducted with the allocation of adequate organizational resources, aimed at achieving the highest level of safety and meeting regulatory requirements. No decision, no project shall be implemented without considering aspects of safety.

All levels of management and all employees are responsible for providing this highest level of safety, starting from the Accountable Manager.

We are committed to:

  • Developing and instilling a safety culture;
  • Demanding the management of safety as a primary responsibility for all managers and employees;
  • Defining clearly for all the employees their responsibilities regarding safety;
  • Minimizing the risks to aircraft operations to our acceptable safety level;
  • Respecting and, where possible, exceeding legal and regulatory requirements and standards;
  • Ensuring that all employees are provided with adequate and appropriate safety information and training, are competent in safety matters and are assigned tasks commensurate only with their skills and knowledge;
  • Establishing and measuring our safety performance through continuous assessment of our current level compared to our acceptable safety level.

Our core beliefs about safety are:

  • Safety is a core business and a personal value
  • Safety is a source of our competitive advantage
  • Our business will be strengthened by the excellence in safety which is an integral part of all our training activities.

Non-punitive Reporting Policy

The Flying School is committed to operating according to the highest safety standards. To achieve this, it is essential to have uninhibited reporting of all accidents, incidents, hazards, risks and other information that may compromise the safety of our operations. To this end, every member of staff is strongly encouraged to, and is responsible for, reporting all safety information.

Reporting is free from any form of retaliation. The main purpose of reporting is risk control and preventing accidents, not to assign any blame. No action will be taken against members of staff who report safety issues through the system of reporting, unless the report proves beyond any reasonable doubt that an illegal act, gross negligence or intentional infringement to the rules and procedures has taken place.

Our method of collection, recording and dissemination of information regarding safety ensures protection to the extent permitted by law, of the identity of those who report safety information.
