Baldwin Safety & Compliance announced it has become the first accepted vendor for the rotorcraft community within the Aviation Safety Information Analysis and Sharing (R-ASIAS) program. The platform for the rotorcraft community was developed by General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT) for the FAA, also referred to as R-ASIAS.
ASIAS was initially introduced to the airline industry in 2007 with a mission to proactively discover safety concerns before accidents or incidents occur, leading to mitigation and prevention. Baldwin was one of the first to share relevant safety information with ASIAS in a similar agreement for the fixed-wing business aircraft community in 2016. GDIT has now developed the centralized data repository and operational infrastructure to securely share de-identified rotorcraft data within the rotor community.
Don Baldwin, President Baldwin Safety and Compliance said, “We have been working with ASIAS for our fixed-wing clients for many years. I have always been a believer in the value of deidentified data-sharing and the best platform to accomplish this today is ASIAS. Rotorcraft’s different missions and procedures require a unique system so there has been a push from the industry to create this R-ASIAS for quite some time. Our client, Global Medical Response (GMR), has been one of many operators pushing for this rotor specific platform and we are excited to work with them as well as other rotor-wing clients that are anxious to participate in this highly sought-after data-share initiative.”
