Baldwin Aviation Introduces Pulsar Fatigue Metrics
Baldwin Aviation of Hilton Head, S.C. has added a new dimension to its Safety Management System (SMS) Risk Assessments by integrating flight and maintenance crew fatigue measurement through a direct link to Pulsar Informatics
Fatigue Risk Management System (FRMS). The agreement between Baldwin and Pulsar will allow Baldwin’s users to open Pulsar’s Aviation Fatigue Meter web application from within the SMS management software. Aviation Fatigue Meter enables users to quickly input duty times and trip schedules in order to identify high fatigue risks as well as potential countermeasures for reducing fatigue risk where needed.
“We have great respect for the outstanding work that Pulsar Informatics has done in helping clients like NASA and the United States Navy manage fatigue risks,” said Don Baldwin, president of Baldwin Aviation. “The increased performance of business aircraft, especially when it comes to long-range operations, dictates the need for specific focus on this key aspect of safety management, and Pulsar is the leading provider of analysis, training and customized programs to address the issue. They represent the type of service and support we consistently strive to provide our clients, as well.”
“We are excited about Baldwin adopting Pulsar’s Aviation Fatigue Meter to further enhance Baldwin’s preflight fatigue assessment. Baldwin clients will see a link to Aviation Fatigue Meter during their preflight assessment, and can try the service for free as well as purchase a subscription to Aviation Fatigue Meter PRO for $15 per month per user, which activates a suite of enhanced features,” said Pulsar’s CEO, Daniel Mollicone, Ph.D.
Users of Aviation Fatigue Meter can identify fatigue hazards in flight operations with a scientifically validated, data-driven analysis that takes just a few minutes and causes minimal crew disruption. Pulsar also offers a software tool for easily assessing fatigue across a client’s entire scheduled operations as well as fatigue consulting and training programs tailored for aviation services professionals.
