To improve safety by providing pilots, managers, and other aviation professionals with the information they need to make smart decisions. We help answer the fundamental question: "How do you know what you don't know?"
Despite technological improvements over the past several decades, human error is still a factor in 80% of aviation accidents. As a result, many organizations require formal risk assessments prior to every flight. However, current methods –
risk matrices and hazard scoring systems – are not totally effective because they are subjective; they rely on perceptions of risk. Since perceptions are based on knowledge and experience, a lack of either will result in inaccurate assessments of risk.
The traditional solution to the knowledge problem is to give pilots more data and more information. For example, the FAA has over 5,500 publications available to pilots! Many people assume – incorrectly – that more data and more information lead to more knowledge. It does not.
The solution is not more information; it is more relevant information. Relevant information increases our knowledge and allows us to take the appropriate actions to mitigate risk. Our products – FlightRisk® and Vector SMS® – focus on transforming data and information into knowledge.
