Flight Data Monitoring Now Offered For Piper PA-46 Series

PMOPA/Fuzion Safety Partnership Offers Flight Data Monitoring 

Piper M-Class Owners and Pilots Association (PMOPA) and Fuzion Safety, have reported that Flight Data Monitoring (FDM) is now available for all Piper PA-46 variants. 

Members of the PA-46 community who participate in this FDM program can assist with identifying potential safety matters before they become a problem, which, may, in turn, help to reduce the likelihood of future accidents and incidents.

PMOPA is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the interests and safety of owners and pilots of Piper PA-46 aircraft worldwide. With more than 1,200 current members, PMOPA membership is available to any registered or prospective owner and/or operator of qualified aircraft or any qualifying individual or organization involved with or providing a service for the PA-46 family of aircraft.

Fuzion Safety aggregates all flight data submitted by participants and assists PMOPA with safety analysis. Fuzion Safety is capable of processing flight data for the FDM program on the following fleet variants of the PA-46:

  • PA-46-310
  • PA-46-350
  • PA-46-500
  • PA-46-600
  • PA-46-JPG500

“FDM is one of the most powerful safety tools available to aviation. It’s been around for decades, with proven results. Its power lies in being able to identify problems flying our airplanes before they become accidents. Threats and errors identified can be threats and errors mitigated. Even seemingly insignificant deviations can, when examined in aggregate, be used to identify those threats that are all around us and errors commonly committed. FDM isn’t about you, it’s about us. PMOPA's Safety Committee is eager to get started on our collective safety journey. We want to fully leverage the insights gained from FDM to tailor PA-46 training, education, and communications—using facts, not speculation,” said Kimberly Coryat, PMOPA Safety Committee Chair and PMOPA Board Member.

“We hope everyone participates,” she added. “By employing FDM with Fuzion Safety, we will become leaders in the world of general aviation safety, bringing our fleet to a higher level of safety. Even those with minimal data can participate—'donating’ the five or ten basic parameters you have available through your older digital avionics can help our effort. For those of you with newer airplanes that are ‘data rich,’ we absolutely need you! Working together, we can collectively improve the safety record of our fleet.”

The more data collected and analyzed, the higher the quality of the insights may be. PMOPA’s Safety Committee will share identified trends, risks, and opportunities with the PA-46 community via the PMOPA Magazine and PMOPA events. Analyses will also be posted on their website.
