In aviation, producing and issuing company manuals is a classic discipline. This effort has traditionally consumed many man hours – and it still does. But the requirements to the structure and content of the manuals have changed dramatically in the last decade. Strict Regulatory Requirements have stipulated operational standards, which must be documented and implemented in the daily operations.
The manuals of contemporary commercial airlines must not only have effective means to produce and maintain “the books,” but must ensure that the manuals are in compliance with regulatory requirements. In addition, these standards are implemented throughout the organization.
The Manual Module can either function as a stand-alone module, or be interlinked to the Aeroplan Compliance Module and thus be an integrated part of the Safety Management System.
