Jet Aviation has signed a long-term agreement with GE Aviation for a comprehensive safety and fleet modernisation project based around C-FOQA (corporate fight operational quality assurance). The programme covers Jet Aviation's global fleet of some 300 aircraft including Airbus, BBJ, Bombardier, Dassault and Gulfstream types.

“The partnership with GE Aviation and its C-FOQA flight efficiency services data analytics marks a continued commitment we have to support our flight operations, flight crews and, most importantly, our customers,” says Jet Aviation VP of flight services Don Haloburdo. “Because safety will always be our top priority, we've chosen to work with the industry leader.”

FOQA, also commonly referred to as FDM (flight data monitoring), is the process of analysing and reviewing routinely recorded flight data. Airlines and operators that adopt FOQA are better able to identify and eliminate potential safety hazards in flight operations.

“Jet Aviation puts safety as a top priority for its business and its clients,” says GE CCO Andrew Coleman. “Our teams are working together to implement a leading FOQA safety solution and support services across Jet Aviation's fleet to continue promoting safety across our industry.”

Launched in 2015 in partnership with the Flight Safety Foundation and now used by more than 300 operators globally, C-FOQA is GE Aviation's premier service for helping business jet operators understand and improve safety. Its analytics software fuses meteorological information, navigation data and terrain mapping to identify safety events and measurements on thousands of flights every day.

Since its introduction in the airline industry more than 20 years ago, FOQA has been widely credited with reducing incident and accident rates at airlines where it has been adopted.
