Polaris Aero's Roby earns CAM certification
Always focused on the safety of aviation at work and as a pilot, Kellie Roby has cemented that interest by achieving CAM status through the NBAA. She will talk on the subject at the next S&D conference in San Diego.

Arizona-based aviation safety software company Polaris Aero has congratulated sales executive Kellie Roby for a Certified Aviation Manager (CAM) through the NBAA. CAMs are dedicated to best practices in aviation management and are continuously striving for excellence in aviation safety. The CAM programme examines applicants' knowledge and experience in leadership, human resources, operations, technical and facilities services and business management.

Roby says that this has helped her more closely connect with Polaris Aero customers who are already pursuing these best practices in their safety programmes. “I've been in my customers' position, and I understand the nuances of what they're aiming to achieve safety-wise and the challenges involved,” she says. “It's helped me connect with our customers on a more personal level.”

In her role at Polaris, Roby helps flight departments of all sizes identify and address their safety challenges. Previously she spent over 10 years working for both Part 135 and Part 91 operators. Her work included wide-ranging roles in FBO operations, piloting Beechjet 400 and Hawker 800 aircraft, flight operations management and safety management. She most recently served as a business manager for a Part 135 charter and management company, for which she oversaw scheduling and charter sales.

Roby holds a BS in aerospace with dual pro-pilot and air traffic control concentrations from Middle Tennessee State University. She is a commercial multi-engine pilot who found her safety focus early in her flying career, and is a member of the North Texas Business Aviation Association where she currently serves as a board member.

Next month, along with Pulsar Informatics president and CEO Daniel Mollicone, Roby will be sharing her safety management expertise in a presentation entitled 'Safety Management Systems, Fatigue Management and FRATs for Schedulers' at the NBAA's Schedulers and Dispatchers Conference in San Diego, California.

“In our presentation, I hope to speak about the necessity of involving the whole team in best practice, and how high a priority it is in safety management,” Roby says.
