“Managing safety has always been a top priority for the Costco flight department. We are well aware of the looming Safety Management System regulations and requirements, but our decision to create and implement a comprehensive SMS was driven more by our appreciation of the effectiveness of such a program rather than some approaching new regulation.
We found ARGUS to be one of the most experienced businesses in this space, with nearly 10 years of SMS experience on a global level. Since June of 2007 PRISM has provided us comprehensive SMS solutions that are fully IS-BAO compliant.
PRISM’ safety experts have not only guided us through implementing and maintaining SMS solutions but continue to enhance and add additional value to those products. Considering all the value that we receive from our PRISM subscription, it has become one of the most cost effective assets of our flight department.”

Will I leave with physical tools to explain SMS to my company?

All participants will receive copies of SMS training posters to take back to their organization.

Do you provide transportation from the Airport?

We do not provide tranportation from the airport.  Denver has many resources for you to take advantage of including taxis, rental cars, uber, and a light rail that connects from the Airport to walking distance from the hotel.  

The pedestrian skybridge near the hotel goes to the “County Line Station”, which is a Light Rail Train station on the E, F and R rail lines.  You can travel to and from the Denver airport via light rail train with just one transfer.  Depending on the time of day, the trip will take 70-100 minutes each way.
The RTD Trip Planner website (https://www.rtd-denver.com/app/plan) allows you to enter your estimated date/time, departure point and destination point to get your routing choices .  The Light Rail Train is also an option for going into downtown Denver in the evenings.
