GCAA Sets the Standard by Enhancing Aviation Safety and Security with Q-Pulse

The aviation regulator for the United Arab Emirates, GCAA, have selected Q-Pulse to help their regulated clients manage their safety audits online which will maintain and improve safety oversight.

Glasgow, United Kingdom, April 21, 2010 --(PR.com)-- The General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) launched yesterday an electronic audit System (Q-Pulse) to make significant contributions to aviation safety and quality in the UAE, as part of a unique approach to safety and security oversight at the General Civil Aviation Authority that will help contribute to the improvement of aviation safety and security in the UAE, during an event held in Dubai yesterday (14th April 2010).

Representatives from various aviation sectors in the UAE attended the launch event that was presented by the system provider, Gael Ltd and the GCAA Q-Pulse project team.

Within the UAE, the GCAA regulates Civil Aviation and delivers designated aviation services with respect to safety and security to strengthen the aviation industry.

Q-Pulse will also serve to enhance communication between both divisions, enabling the Authority to provide an integrated environment offering safety and security and to meet their commitment to provide the highest standards in aviation safety and security.

Ismaeil Al Balooshi, Safety Director of GCAA explained: ‘As the first regulator in the world to adopt this approach, to integrate the Q-Pulse system with the industry, the GCAA has taken a truly proactive stance in maintaining and improving safety and security oversight.

"As well as being an innovative project with a truly unique approach, it is extremely encouraging to see technology being applied in such an innovative way, within an industry in which it is imperative both to take full advantage of the advances that are occurring around us, and to keep pace with the continuing expansion in the region’s aviation sector. This will assist the GCAA in establishing a strong infrastructure to formulate the basis for their safety and security resolutions and enforcement action.

"This platform is also used by many of our partners in the UAE civil aviation industry which will allow us to stream line our related processes, and hence allow us to provide better services to our clients," Added Al Balooshi.

Ahmed Al Rawahi, Acting Chief of Airworthiness and the Project Manager of Q-Pulse said: “The new system will assist in planning, communicating, storing and creating central reporting system for all audits conducted by GCAA. The hassle of communicating the audit findings through papers will disappear adding more efficiency and creating a precise monitor and measure of safety and security indicators.”

This system is poised to bridge the gap between the regulated and the regulator that has been such a source of frustration within the aviation industry worldwide.
