Argus’s Professional Resources In System Management (Prism) division is now offering safety management system (SMS) packages at special pricing for helicopter operators. According to Prism, its new “affordable” pricing for small operators of one or two aircraft “makes a functional SMS even more accessible to the entire helicopter industry.” The Prism essential and professional subscription packages provide a “comprehensive” set of tools to assist aviation companies as they implement and manage an effective SMS program, Argus said.
Prism, a subsidiary of aviation services firm Argus, is sponsoring the first year of corporate membership in the Flight Safety Foundation (FSF) for each new Prism SMS Professional or Enterprise subscriber. Prism SMS is a “comprehensive package of products and services that can be customized to meet the specific SMS requirements of any operation, and is completely IS-BAO compliant.”
Argus International has hired William Yantiss to lead a new division called Prism Solutions (professional resources in system management). Yantiss previously was vice president of safety, quality, security and environment for United Airlines. The new Prism Solutions division is designed to help clients with safety management systems, safety and security training, system design and implementation, manuals and consulting.
Prism Business Media, a business-to-business communications and information publishing company, has acquired the aviation industry newsletter SpeedNews and the publication’s aviation industry conferences.
