   ...Providing Safety and Quality Management Systems for Aviation Service Providers


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​








Our company has been assisting aviation service providers of all shapes and sizes make the transition to SMS since 2006 and that hands-on experience has taught us a few things about what it takes to achieve an effective program that actually delivers value and benefit, year after year. With the primary goal of continuous improvement, the challenge for most small to medium sized operators is collecting the right data and establishing realistic metrics that allow you to measure your progress.


Which is where we can help. We've developed and implemented hundreds of programs, that's actually the easy part. The more challenging aspect is getting everyone to buy-in to the mind-set that is required to achieve a truly effective SMS. The requisite shared attitude is this: Everyone is equally responsible and accountable for the success or failure of the program, Which means everyone has to participate. If you are not getting the results you expected, chances are good you are not getting full participation and there is some confusion about employee roles and responsibilities. The value we provide is getting your team to level-4 of the FAA's maturity ladder by providing the following services:


  • We provide turn-key SMS project management solutions
  • We provide SMS Confirmation of Conformity Declarations
  • We provide initial and recurrent SMS training programs
  • We provide SMS tune-up and Team Building programs
  • We provide Independent Aviation Safety Evaluations
  • We provide IS-BAO initial and renewal Certifications


​The most important predictor of success with regard to an effective SMS, is team cohesion and team participation. In the right hands, the SMS is a highly effective tool that improves hazard awareness, raises morale and builds ownership. In the wrong hands, the SMS may provide a false sense of security and overconfidence that can lead to lost opportunities and poor results. If you are interested in getting the most from your SMS & QMS programs, we would love to work with you.


"SMS is all about decision-making. Thus it has to be a decision-maker's tool, not a traditional safety program separate and distinct from business and operational decision making. Safety beings from both the top down and the bottom up. Everyone from the receptionist, ramp worker, pilot, manager, and FAA inspector has a role to perform", (FAA).
