I started SMS4Aviation after a 25 year aviation career flying as a flight crewmember for a part 121 airline and a fortune 500 corporation, that provided me lots of interesting experience and international travel, with the added perk of getting to use my A&P license on occasion. For the past 13 years, I have worked with corporate flight departments develop, implement and manage their SMS and QMS programs. As part of that process, I established an audit division of the company to provide IS-BAO and SMS conformity programs. Depending on the scope and size of the project, I have three people I trust to assist me who have extensive experience in their specific skill-set.

  • 25 years flight crew part 121 & 91
  • 12 years of maintenance (A&P) experience
  • 13 years SMS development and implementation experience
  • 13 years SMS training and management experience
  • Advanced SMS credential (IBAC)
  • 10 years QMS experience
