Vistair continues to support commercial innovation and ingenuity

May 11th 2017

Vistair, a leader in the delivery of aviation documentation and safety management systems, is supporting the Innovator of the Year Award at this year’s Bristol Post Business Awards.

The South West corner of the United Kingdom has over the past few years become a melting pot for new thinking, environmental awareness and technological progress. The Bristol Post Business Awards provides a platform to applaud and celebrate this advancement and once again recognise excellence in the region.

Combining innovation, product development, and ingenuity to develop a commercially viable product proposition is not for the faint hearted. Innovators and inventors are often the ones that have to fail multiple times before finding ‘overnight’ success.

Businesses that are supported by such developments are both rare and often exceptional. Thomas Edison provides the most clarity on the time and effort innovation takes with his famous “Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration” observation.

Vistair’s history is built along the same lines and is where innovation and indeed perspiration in aviation technical document services and safety management systems not only made a significant contribution to the business but actually created it! Established in 2001 Vistair now has a global client base and includes the safest, largest and fastest growing airlines in the world.

As Ian Herbert, CEO, Vistair comments: “Innovation and ingenuity in business genuinely excites me. Supporting this award and being part of a ceremony that recognises and champions the extraordinary organisations and talent in our region is a great honour.

“Our document management and safety management services rely upon innovation every day and it is only through the efforts of talented people that businesses like ours exist and thrive. It is neither simple nor intermittent but a constant thread for those businesses that want to exceed and create new markets.”

The Bristol Post Awards take place on the 28th June at Gala Dinner to be held at Ashton Gate Stadium. Award categories include Business of the Year, Export and Best Technological & Creative Business. Further details can be found at
