Problem-solving & technical advisory services
Consulting comes down to solving the client's problems. Designing, developing, and certifying aeronautical products is rife with many challenges. Whatever the obstacle or technical challenge your company is facing, if it involves aircraft propulsion or aircraft certification at large, we are here to help you.
The best, shortest, and least expensive way to get an aircraft design certified is to design it with the applicable requirements in mind. Alas, many companies just starting in this business do just the opposite. They do the design first and then attempt to match the requirements to an already existing design. This approach does not work well. It leads to expensive redesigns, months or years of delays. Often, the result is the loss of financial backing and failure of the program.
BAC Aerospace is here to ensure this does not happen to your project. By having us involved in the design phase, we can help your design team develop a product that will meet the certification requirements. We can tell you what is approvable and what is not. We save you time and money by advising you on the best design alternative. The earlier you get us involved in the design phase, the better.
The process of developing and certifying new aircraft and aircraft modifications involves - or at least should involve - numerous negotiations with the regulatory authorities. If your company is having difficulties reaching an equitable technical agreement with Transport Canada, give us a call.
Certification program management
In this tightly regulated industry, aircraft development and certification programs need specialized program management techniques and close liaison with the regulatory authorities to be successful. We can manage the certification program for you or help and guide you through the process.
Organizational & management consulting
Many aircraft development and certification programs have failed or floundered due to not having the proper organizational setup and management structure. We can help you review your organizational and certification management practices to verify if there is room for their improvement.
As a former government expert and experienced professional in the field of aircraft design safety and aeronautical propulsion system approval, Chris is qualified and available to act as an expert witness in litigations involving civil or criminal liability related to aircraft design and certification.
