ICF International helps a diverse range of aviation clients meet regulatory requirements, performance objectives, and quality goals related to safety and security. Our commercial aviation specialists work with aviation clients to:
- Conduct independent safety review to identify and mitigate hazards in areas such as flight operations, ground operations, and aircraft maintenance
- Reveal latent conditions, gaps in standardization, misassumptions, and over-reliance on regulations in operations that can start the chain of events leading to an accident or incident
- Close gaps in security plans, recognize the signs of a security threat, and respond appropriately
- Design constructive communications for all stakeholders—front-line employees to senior managers—in the event of an incident
ICF delivers safety and security solutions to clients in all aspects of aviation. For airlines and corporate aircraft operators, we conduct audits, develop technical manuals, assist with continuity of operations planning (COOP), and facilitate emergency response drills. For insurance companies, we offer guidance in helping their aviation customers operate with greater safety and security.
For airports, we help conduct audits, design enterprise-wide safety management systems, and implement certification drills. For civil airport authorities worldwide, we provide assistance in meeting international standards and European Commission requirements, as well as in maintaining Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) International Aviation Safety Assessment Category 1 status.
