Whether applying for a new operating certificate, contemplating changes, or simply running existing operations, certification management requires close attention to the regulatory environment and a deep understanding of the operation.
CAVOK has the proven expertise to help new and merging carriers gain certification and to help clients certify major operational changes. CAVOK is proud to be one of the first Federal Aviation Administration’s Qualified Certification Consultants (QCC). This FAA program is meant to identify proven and trusted partners to assist with the certification of new carriers. Further, CAVOK supported all of the recent major US carrier mergers. Our methodical, well-orchestrated approach combines the efforts of the carriers, the FAA, and a team of CAVOK professionals to achieve single operating certificate (SOC).
CAVOK’s highly qualified team can prepare your company’s tailor-made Exposition and Procedures documents that harmonizes with your operating environment and ensures compliance with the latest EASA regulations. We can both develop your regulatory compliance manuals for Part M, Part 145 and Part 147 organizations as well as audit and edit your current documentation to meet EASA, ICAO or CAA standards.
Regulatory non-compliance and quality escapes are a fact of life in today’s complex and evolving aviation environment. Even the perception of non-compliance has grounded entire air carrier fleets.
CAVOK offers a wide range of services to help certificate holders confront regulatory failures (or potential failures). CAVOK follows a structured approach to determine if an adequate framework for an effective compliance strategy exists. We start by mapping out potential issues, then expose and define gaps, conduct risk assessments against these gaps, design a strategy to resolve, and execute the corresponding plan.
