The joint JDA/FJD team of aviation safety and security specialists will help commercial and government clients to:

  • Perform independent safety and security reviews to identify and mitigate hazards and security shortcomings in flight operations, airport operations, and aircraft maintenance.
  • Uncover latent conditions, program gaps, incomplete procedures and processes that can start the chain of events leading to an accident, incident or security issue.
  • Pinpoint shortfalls in security plans, recognize the signs of a security threat, and respond appropriately
