GE Digital and Flapz aim to increase aviation safety in Latin America
Safety Insight for Business Jets helps business jet operators fly safer by identifying events and trends, as well as fuel efficiency analysis. Operators receive all data in a simplified, modern web application.
GE Digital examines data and tracks safety metrics to reveal potential areas of risk and benchmark each operator against the industry average.

Flapz and GE Digital have signed a memorandum of understanding to work towards the mutual goal of increasing safety in business and general aviation in Colombia and other parts of Latin America. The duo plan to work together to provide GE Digital's Safety Insight for Business Jets, a C-FOQA software and services solution. Flapz's consortium aims to make it easy for business jet operators to improve safety by implementing procedures at the highest level of international standards.

Flapz connects passengers with regional certified operators. Thanks to a disruptive technology that enables near-live bookings, subscribers can search, compare and book flights on more than 250 aircraft, as well as empty legs and shared seats.
