new approaches are explored in the years ahead, our task remains

charter operators and corporate flight departments, as well as their regulatory
agencies, recognize the benefits of a proactive and effective safety program:
management and elimination of hazards, enabling safer operations with
reduced risk exposure.
accidents and all their consequences.
of deviations from regulatory compliance enabling corrective action
and voluntarily disclosure before regulatory intervention.
on quality and identification of opportunities for operational improvement.
from correction of problems, avoidance of civil penalties and improvement
We help airlines
and other aircraft operators realize these benefits through the review
and enhancement of existing safety programs or the development of new
programs, with special emphasis
on Safety Management Systems
(SMS) that meet ICAO requirements for commercial operators and private
flight departments and are key requirements for the Air Charter Safety
Foundation’s IAS Audit Registration and the
International Business Aviation Council’s IS-BAO
The scope of our
assistance can vary from the creation of an entire Safety Management
System to a focus on one or more of the four SMS pillars (safety policy,
safety risk management, safety assurance and safety promotion) to
individual safety program elements, such as:
A safety incident/accident
and trend analysis program
of the safety program and safety committee and assignment of staff
and training in safety and accident prevention
Creation of an
overall safety culture in the organization
