Comment by Steve Bentley – CEO of Sofema Aviation Services (SAS) – Your Aviation Regulatory Training Provider


We are asked this question with regularity (unfortunately) – Is Sofema Aviation Services / SofemaOnline Approved by EASA to Deliver Regulatory Training?

Why unfortunately? – Because often the person asking is a Compliance or Safety Manager or even a Nominated Post Holder operating within the European Union and working for an Operator, or AMO / CAMO or an Airport or an Approved Training Organisation (ATO) or Maintenance Training Organisation (MTO).

EASA Part 145 and its forebear JAR 145 is a mature regulatory environment with nearly 30 years of development within the European Arena. There is increasing focus being brought to bear regarding the importance of managing competence within the workplace and it is for the reason that both EASA & European Regulatory Authorities are expecting that EASA Part 145 Organisations manage the competence of employees within the 145!

The Role of Maintenance Error Management Systems (MEMS)

The ability of the organisation to investigate Maintenance Error is a valuable tool to understand causal, contributory and root elements and to develop and provide appropriate mitigation's to reduce ongoing exposure.

If we wish to minimize re-occurrence we should address not only the root cause (or causes) of a given outcome, but to also consider all the contributing causes (and there could be many!) as this will have a significant positive impact on the lowering of the threat level (reduction in exposure).
