Operating a fleet of four business jets and 24 helicopters for charter, private customers and in support of the Abu Dhabi offshore oil and gas industry, Falcon Aviation Services (FAS) are subject to strict safety requirements in the highly regulated aviation sector.
With significant hazards present during everyday operations, Falcon faced considerable safety and quality assurance tasks, all of which needed to be co-ordinated and documented to meet the requirements of regulators and customers alike.
In an attempt to meet these challenges, Falcon had been battling a “sea of paperwork”. Documents were stored on personal computers and with all approvals going through the Quality Manager, the process was lengthy and could take days to complete. Ideagen's Q-Pulse and Gael Risk solutions were implemented to improve the effectiveness of processes relating to risk management, internal auditing, document management, action management and incident management as well as monitoring training requirements.
