The MMOPA Flight Risk Assessment Tool (FRAT) is a tool developed by the Malibu/Mirage Owners and Pilots Association to aid the PA46 pilot community in assessing flight risks unique to the PA46 (Malibu, Matrix Mirage/M350, JetPROP, Meridian/M500, and M600 aircraft).

The pilot fills out a questionnaire about their upcoming flight and the MMOPA FRAT provides a score and one of three possible ranges:

Green: Lower risk. The pilot/crew should still discuss what the highest scoring risks are and attempt to mitigate those risks.

Yellow: Caution. Try to mitigate some of the higher scoring items to reduce risk. If the score is still yellow, the FAA recommends the pilot bring in the opinion of a designated safety person (such as a CFI) to help think of ways to further mitigate risks or cancel the flight.

Red: No-go. Unless the risks can be mitigated, the flight is cancelled.

The FAA says this about FRAT’s:

When implementing a Safety Management System (SMS), one of the most critical components to develop is a Flight Risk Assessment Tool (FRAT). Because every flight has some level of risk, it is critical that pilots are able to differentiate, in advance, between a low risk flight and a high-risk flight, and then establish a review process and develop risk mitigation strategies. A Flight Risk Analysis Tool enables proactive hazard identification, is easy to use, and can visually depict risk. It is an invaluable tool in helping pilots make better go/no-go decisions and should be a part of every flight.

The Malibu/Mirage Owners & Pilots Association (MMOPA) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the interests and safety of owners and pilots worldwide who fly PA-46 derivative (Malibu, Matrix Mirage/M350, JetPROP, Meridian/M500, and M600 aircraft). MMOPA was founded in 1988, and now serves over 900 members. 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. MMOPA is not affiliated with the New Piper aircraft company of any other manufacturer/vendor.

Great risk assessment tool

Great tool for assessing risks prior to a flight. Takes 60 seconds to work through and stores your prior values.

Email ability request

This is the best RAT app I have found. My only request is to add capability to email a report to yourself for a given flight
