OPERATIONAL RISK MANAGEMENT PROGRAM

Aerobatic flight is inherently more dangerous than normal routine flight operations such as Commercial Regular Public Transport, Charter, and General Aviation. However, we have identified specific areas that will limit our Operational Risk to a minimum increasing safety to a maximum :

MAINTENANCE

Our Jet Provost aircraft are carefully maintained in accordance with a CASA approved “Schedule of Maintenance” which has been modeled from that used by the United Kingdom’s Royal Air Force (RAF). Our Jet Provosts last flew with the RAF on active service and we have the original logbooks formally maintained by them along with a complete maintenance library. Our Nanchang aircraft are maintained to the same high standard using the maintenance systems used by the Chinese Air Force. We operate our aircraft with a LIMITED CATEGORY CERTIFICATE OF AIRWORTHINESS which requires us to follow strict guidelines as set forth by the Australian Warbird Association Ltd of which we are a member.

AIRCRAFT CHOICE

We specifically chose to fly the Jet Provost Mk5a and CJ6a Nanchang because they were designed tough as Military Trainers making them robust, reliable, and aerodynamically predictable. The Jet Provost has one of the safest track records of any military jet aircraft and it is for this reason that the RAF chose to operate the series for so long. The “Side by Side” seating arrangement allows the pilot to look after the passenger easily and adds to the pilot’s overall situational awareness, adding to safety.

PILOT TRAINING

Unlike other Jet Adventure Companies, you will ALWAYS have a highly experienced MILITARY TRAINNED FIGHTER PILOT as your Mission Commander. This adds credibility, discipline, professionalism, and an undisputable proven past performance to all our flight packages adding to the overall safety of each mission.

OPERATING LOCATION

Our main base of operation is Hobart Intl. Airport. We are the only Jet Adventure Company operating from a capital city airport in Australia, which gives us the added safety and infrastructure that comes with a large airport such as a long and wide runway, Air Traffic Control, Safety and Rescue Crews, 24/7 Security, and modern passenger facilities. Hobart and Tasmania also gives us not only fantastic scenery but uncluttered airspace with minimal air traffic. We have a designated operational area out over Storm Bay which keeps us free from local traffic adding to our overall safety but does restrict our fantastic adventures.

“Operational Risk Management” (ORM) is a systematic program that helps us reduce the limited additional risk involved with aerobatic adventure flight operations allowing us to help ensure we can attain our number one Mission Objective, SAFETY! (Go to “About Us” for details on our Mission Objectives). We are convinced that we offer the safest, most authentic and professional adventure flight service in the world. That’s why we are known as “Australia’s premier adventure flight company.”
