1) Does aviation safety management system include plan for the review of Aviation SMS?
SMS Pro doesn't formally have a mechanism for evaluating the entire aviation SMS program; however, these checklists are a great starting point. We provide a list of these questions at the end of each SMS implementation section for you to copy into your aviation SMS evaluation program, which may be Word for most aviation organizations.
2) Does aviation safety management system include a process to ensure adequate resources will be allocated to the evaluation process?
SMS Pro simplifies the management of you flight department's aviation safety management system.  Limited resources are more effective when using the best aviation safety program on the market.  While we can not guarantee adequate resources will be available to evaluate your aviation safety program, we can guarantee that your limited resources will be most effective while using SMS Pro.  Consider the alternative: a paper-based or Excel approach?  What horror!
3) Does aviation safety management system include process to ensure staff will be involved in the evaluation of Aviation SMS?
This question is left to you to answer.  SMS Pro documentation makes the evaluation of an aviation safety managment program less onerous. In addition, a GAP Analysis has been implemented in SMS Pro. This GAP analysis has been adapted from various SMS guidance documents published in Canada, The United Kingdom and The United States. It provides assessments of safety programs measured against effective SMS criteria as described by
  1. ICAO Safety Management Manual;
  2. Doc 9859, TP14326E (Canada); and
  3. SMS Pilot Project Gap Analysis (FAA).
This GAP Analysis is divided into sections for elements required for an effective SMS. These questions cover significant parts of each element. Rating criteria in SMS Pro's GAP Analysis provides a scale to rate your program. By holding a group meeting and using the GAP Analysis tool, your staff can evaluate your aviation SMS and easily see your progress using the charts available in the GAP Analysis.
