We are proud to announce that we expand our global footprint by joining hands with Salus Aviation Group, which will be the launch customer for IQSMS in New Zealand!
The chance to work with one single, comprehensive but still intuitive quality, safety and risk management system across the entire group led Salus Aviation Group to implement the IQSMS core modules and the Document Distribution module including the respective offline applications.
“This web-based system increases the flexibility of our operations personnel to be able to access and interact with real-time safety information whenever and wherever required, from their tablet or smartphone” says Salus Aviation’s Head of Safety and Compliance, Armin Sadafi. “The adoption of IQSMS will allow us to continuously improve and optimize our safety and quality management across all group businesses using a consistent approach.”
Headquartered in Auckland, New Zealand, Salus Aviation was originally established in the 1950s as a sales and leasing company and is now one of the largest general aviation companies in the Pacific Rim region. The Group operates two subsidiaries – Oceania Aviation, an NZCAA Part 145 and Part 148 approved organization in New Zealand, and Heli-Parts Nevada, an FAA Part 145 approved facility in the U.S. and the world’s largest supplier of refurbished and used Airbus components and Turbomeca engines.
The privately owned group specializes in providing high-quality support and services to fixed-wing and helicopter operators, owners and service providers such as private owners, flight schools, utility and farm operators, emergency service providers, tourism operators and aircraft maintainers.
Salus Aviation Group’s multifaceted services include parts sales, role equipment design and manufacture, aircraft maintenance and upgrades, component and engine overhaul, avionic systems, helicopter blade repair, aircraft and component leasing, and aircraft sales.
“We are incredibly excited to have Salus Aviation on board as our first customer in New Zealand, moving IQSMS into a whole new time zone.” commented Jonathan Frey, Director of Business Development Asia-Pacific at ASQS. “We want to thank our colleagues from Salus Aviation for their trust in our product and our services and look forward to a long-lasting partnership.”
