Based in Denver, North Carolina, Mountain Air Cargo, Inc. is an express cargo carrier providing flight and maintenance services throughout the eastern half of the United States, Canada, and the Caribbean Islands. FDS will be providing Flight Data Analysis for Mountain Air Cargo’s ATR-42/72 aircraft.

Ken Ashby, Director of Safety of Mountain Air Cargo said:

The opportunity to work with FDS has been a pleasure. It is fundamental that all involved in FDM agree on the aims and objectives of the work and the self-imposed restrictions in which we operate. All aviation professionals accept the improvement of safety standards as a worthy goal but agreeing on the method of achieving it is more difficult. By fully sharing the objectives and concerns of all parties, the possibility of the misunderstandings about what FOQA will accomplish can be reduced.

Some operators may be under the mistaken impression that simply receiving a list of events once a month would constitute an acceptable FDM program. This is certainly not the case in my view - without the assessment and corrective action, such a system would deliver no real safety improvement and it is highly likely that such operators would find themselves assessed as 'non-compliant' when audited by their FAA CMT for FOQA compliance.

Flight Data Service’s knowledge and understanding of the safety issues I face in our airline, and how the FDM/FOQA program should work, has been refreshing. By increasing our reliance on two industry-led safety programs, the Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP), and implementing the Flight Operational Quality Assurance (FOQA) program, which involves the collection and analysis of data recorded during flight to improve safety, will add immeasurably to our safety knowledge base. This empirical approach, coupled with the expertise and commitment of FDS provides the underpinning for MAC’s safety efforts.

I am looking forward to our business relationship and relieved that I now have an additional tool in my department which will contribute to the safety of our crews and will become the corner stone for our Flight OPS SMS program.
