Global Aerospace welcomes GE Digital and FlightSafety to SM4 Community of Excellence
Having FSI and GE in the SM4 programme aligns with its core principle of loss prevention. They bring insights and a risk reduction focus that will enhance data use so as to avoid potential risks and to tailor training.

Insurance provider Global Aerospace has welcomed FlightSafety International and GE Digital to its SM4 aviation safety programme as partners in The Community of Excellence. Global Aerospace recognises the safety benefits of data-driven training through FlightSafety using GE Digital data and is honoured to integrate these organisations into the programme.

Business aviation training provider FSI and software provider GE Digital will help the company's elite-level, general aviation policyholders capitalise on aggregated industry insights gained from data sharing, enabling them to develop valuable scenario-based training.

GE Digital's aviation software puts data to work to produce insights that enable customers to enhance operator safety and efficiency. "We're proud to join Global Aerospace's broader community of partners committed to flight safety excellence," says general manager Andrew Coleman. "It's programmes like SM4 that provide GE Digital's Safety Insight data analytics with a broader platform to deliver key operational insights that further promote aviation safety."

Richard Meikle, executive vice president, operations and safety at FSI adds: "Global's elite flight departments have made a substantial commitment and investment in safety; their focus on data-driven risk reduction enhances safety for the entire industry. The primary mission of FlightSafety is to reduce risk, and our investment in a data-driven approach is demonstrated in partnerships with both GE Digital and Global Aerospace."

Dana DiPietro, vice president, underwriting manager for Global Aerospace who co-manages the SM4 programme, says: "This initiative aligns perfectly with a core principle of the SM4 programme; loss prevention. We look forward to working together with FSI and GE Digital to enhance the industry's utilisation of data to avoid potential risks and tailor training programmes to reduce safety events."

Since 2010, Global Aerospace has committed over $6.5 million to support SM4.
