Avion Group is to work with UK software firm Ideagen, who will provide Avion Group with its Q-Pulse software as the company looks to "professionalise" its safety and quality management processes.

Q-Pulse will replace a legacy system which is currently in place, providing crucial aspects of quality and safety such as auditing, reporting and document management.

Marco Brandes, Group Safety and Compliance Manager, said the implementation of Q-Pulse will help the company with its ambition of working more closely with the commercial aviation market. He said: "Our current system is more suitable for the management of general aviation processes and Q-Pulse will enable us to future-proof the business and reach our goals of working more closely with commercial airlines and their pilots.

"For us, that is a really important aspect of this project. It is a strategic goal that we connect with those global commercial airlines, working alongside them with the same systematic processes."

The Q-Pulse project will enable Avion Group to operate to the ISO:9001 standard at all of its sites. Marco Brandes commented: "The goals of this project is to work in a profesional way on our safety management and to facilitate an ISO:9001 programme for our Avion simulators. Q-Pulse will allow us to do that as it will enable us to introduce an integrated approach and bring several different management system across our subsidiaries under the one umbrella. A single, familiar process for our operations, whether it's from the simulator side of the business or the training side."

Avion Group's services include providing cadet programs, professional flight training and the construction and operation of flight simulators and simulation centres.
