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 15-years, I have worked with customers develop, implement and manage their SMS programs. 


Safety Management Systems (ICAO, FAA, OHSAS)

Airport SMS Implementation Plans

IS-BAO support Programs

IS-BAO stage audits

Managed SMS & ISBAO programs

Independent Aviation Safety Evaluations (IASE)

Compliance assessments

Safety training programs

SMS initial and recurrent training


While I understand that the SMS is a very effective tool when properly managed, I also know that it has proven to be ineffective in many departments, usually due to staffing constraints and a general lack of understanding of what it can do. That is where I think I can really make a difference in your operation. I believe in training and that is where I spend much of my time with new departments. If you are focused on being the best department you can be, I would like to talk to you. Call me anytime.
