FAA okays Ravn Alaska's safety management system

Ravn Air Group, Alaska´s largest regional airline, has announced its Safety Management System, or SMS, has been approved by the FAA, the company said.

An SMS program looks proactively at how to identify and mitigate safety issues. It ensures safety is folded into every facet of an airline´s operation, informing the policies and procedures that are put in place and therefore formalizing the processes for assessing potential risks and taking action to make sure any risks are promptly addressed.

Ravn Air Group is headquartered in Anchorage and supported by over 1,000 employees. It operates a highly reliable fleet of 77 aircraft on more than 400 flights per day (almost 3,000 flights a week) from Anchorage, Fairbanks, Bethel, Aniak, St. Mary´s, Nome, Kotzebue, Unalakleet, Barrow, and Galena.
