Performance Vector delivers valuable, forward-looking safety support for USAIG-insured operators of turbine aircraft.
PRISM SMS joins program participants Convergent Performance and Alertness Solutions to give insured turbine operators a broad choice of safety-enhancing services.
PRISM SMS products are designed to help business aircraft operators – from single aircraft operators to the largest flight department – plan, effectively implement and manage their safety management systems (SMS). The program is aligned with the International Civil Aviation Organization’s “Four Pillars of Safety Management” concept and is fully IS-BAO compliant. Argus International, a global leader in aviation safety management, created PRISM SMS to help operators effectively meet the increasing challenges created by emerging regulations and standards.
PRISM SMS offers two subscription levels – PRISM Essential and PRISM Pro. USAIG policyholders that are eligible to participate in Performance Vector may choose either level at no charge for the first annual subscription period and with applicable discounts during subsequent years of their subscription.
“For over a decade, ARGUS has offered innovative SMS solutions to assist operators around the world as they develop, implement, and manage an effective SMS, said Steve Witowski, PRISM Vice President Business Aviation Services. “USAIG’s Performance Vector program offers policyholders additional benefits that go beyond just the monetary value, extending into and improving each operator’s safety culture and SMS effectiveness. We are pleased to have our PRISM SMS packages included in USAIG’s cutting edge Performance Vector Program.”
“With the addition of PRISM SMS, Performance Vector has the potential to deliver immeasurable value to our customers,” said USAIG President and CEO David L. McKay. “PRISM’s world-class SMS expertise and products represent the right tools at the right time to help USAIG policyholders advance the leading edge of aviation risk management and safety.”
Performance Vector programs meet aviation regulatory requirements, accreditation protocols and industry standards such as FAA, IS-BAO, NBAA’s Certified Aviation Manager program, and ICAO. Eligibility for additional Performance Vector services refreshes upon each policy renewal. Flexible, web-based delivery works with, rather than against, busy schedules to help meet the training goals of modern flight departments.
