The words no one wants to hear when they’re tightly strapped into an aluminum tube, flying at 900kph, 35,000 feet up in the air.
One in three Americans either feels anxious or scared to fly and 73% are fearful of mechanical problems during flight.
“On a flight from Kiev to Toronto, several screws fell out of the ceiling onto my lap…When air started sucking out of a loose seam around my window, I really started to panic.” – Nate Drescher, The Travel
So, putting our fears aside for a second, why is flying the safest way to travel?
Well, partly because of the advances in aircraft design, technology, and engineering, but mostly because of Aerospace Standard (AS) 9100. The International Quality Management System standard for the Aviation, Space, and Defense industry.
Whether you’re an avid flyer, an aviation expert, or an aerospace supplier, join me as we fly through the following AS9100 topics:
- What is AS9100 and where on earth did it come from?
- The 5 orbital differences between AS9100 and ISO 9001
- AS9100 certification, it’s not rocket science
- AS9100 and Process Street: The sky’s the limit
Fix your seat in an upright position, fasten your seatbelt, and prepare for take-off…
