border’s Safety Management System (SMS) Is an Affordable, Comprehensive Solution

IMAGEIf you’ve been planning to implement an SMS program and haven’t committed yet, now is a great time to get started. Our SMS program offers great value, including the tools necessary for flight departments, fleets and aircraft operators to implement the requisite SMS components of safety assurance, safety promotion, safety policy and risk management. Because it integrates with, our SMS is a solid choice for companies seeking a seamless connection to real–time flight operations.

In addition to the integration, our SMS offers a few other noteworthy features. With our flight risk assessment tool (FRAT), SMS users can enter custom risk values and create multiple FRATs based on their unique operational circumstances and requirements. FRATs can be accessed from the SMS dashboard or within accounts and are archived for future reference and auditing.

IMAGE Our SMS integrates with the Air Charter Safety Foundation’s (ACSF) Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP) program, enabling ACSF members to self–report safety events and risk–related concerns directly from their SMS account.

The SMS Safety Share feature helps to take the mystery out of risk/hazard reporting with a shared database of real–world issues and corrective actions. This searchable database contains anonymous entries culled from the community of SMS users. SMS subscribers can reference this feature to gain insight into reported risks, mitigation procedures and user comments. SMS is affordable, user–friendly and designed for every member within your organization — not just pilots and management. Learn more here, or contact us at 203–262–8942 or

For added convenience, save the aircraft you view most frequently as favorites. For Premium Flight Trackers, multiple flights can be shown at once, and there is the capability to add more than five favorites (free accounts are limited to five favorites).
