Specialized aviation services that help you navigate risk.


Aviation Audits

In highly demanding aviation industries like oil and gas, geophysical exploration, air and passenger transport—risk management is a critical component of doing business. We offer three levels of industry specific auditing programs to help you perform at peak, and achieve your risk management goals.

Desktop audits

Ideal in the event that a quick, yet thorough, aircraft or operator risk evaluation is needed. Includes a questionnaire completed by the Operator, an informal interview and limited solicitation of documentation.

Conventional audits

Includes a questionnaire, on-site facility and aircraft inspections, interviews with key personnel, an assessment of management systems and pilot training records, and a comprehensive post-audit report with findings, recommendations and a Corrective Action Plan.

Enhanced Desktop Audits

Includes a pre-audit questionnaire, documentation solicitation and review, interviews with key operator personnel (via video conference), solicitation of photographic, video, or documentary evidence to substantiate items of concern or emphasis, and a final report with findings, observations and recommendations that detail a Corrective Action Plan. This audit can serve as a basis for reducing on-site verification of risk based concerns, and an opportunity to lower costs while achieving your risk management goals.
