Reliable Airlines Joins Top 5% of Part 135 Cargo Operators with FAA Acceptance of Its Safety Management System


Reliable Airlines, a cargo airline based in Albuquerque, today announced its Safety Management System (SMS) is in full compliance with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) standards. The Safety Management System Voluntary Program (SMSVP) is optional, and the airline's achievement in attaining FAA acceptance, or "active conformance," demonstrates its strong commitment to aviation safety and establishing the requisite infrastructure to meet these rigorous standards. Reliable Airlines is building an airline with sophisticated safety systems, procedures and technology to safely scale.

The Reliable Airlines SMS provides guidance and procedures that cover operations, flights, testing, engineering, environmental health and safety, cargo services and airspace management. The FAA completed a review and validation of the associated manuals and processes before formal acceptance.

"Ensuring the highest levels of safety has been our top priority since day one, and it's instilled in our culture," said Tom Klassen, President and Director of Operations for Reliable Airlines. "Our dedicated team completed the SMSVP process from application to acceptance in less than 90 days. We could have not accomplished this without the support of our partners at the Albuquerque FAA Flight Standards District Office."

The airline has a fleet of five Cessna 208 Caravan aircraft and operates daily cargo flights from Albuquerque Sunport and has near-term plans for aircraft and route expansion. Reliable Airlines is a wholly owned subsidiary of Reliable Robotics, which is focused on developing and certifying aviation safety-enhancing technologies, including auto-land, auto-taxi, and auto-takeoff, as well as high-integrity navigation and remote piloting capabilities. The Reliable autonomous flight system is aircraft-agnostic and will be deployed first on the Caravan.

To prepare for continued growth and future expansion, Reliable Airlines is actively recruiting line pilots with experience flying the Caravan, high-tech aircraft maintenance professionals and air carrier operations professionals to join its world-class team.
