Our team is deeply rooted in the transportation industry, with industry-focused experts who are passionate about helping airlines, railroads and transit agencies solve their most pressing strategic, operational, organizational, regulatory and technical challenges.

CAVOK offers technical consulting that supports the development of manual systems, policies, procedures and processes that conform to safety management system (SMS) concepts, capture industry best practices and satisfy the unique regulatory requirements of highly regulated transportation industries.  We are the leading air carrier certification consultancy in the United States and hold an FAA Qualified Certificate Consultant designation.  In addition, we design and optimize asset maintenance inspection programs and assist operators with the associated reliability data collection and analysis necessary to maintain and enhance those programs.  Lastly, as experts in transportation operations, we provide highly relevant and tactical advisory support for the improvement of flight an maintenance operations, as well as implementation support for the various IT and technology systems used by transportation companies.

Our other major focus is providing ad-hoc as well as long-term technical support and airworthiness management services, to include engineering, maintenance programs, planning, materials, technical publications, technical writing, records and compliance recording for airlines, railroads, plant operators, and MROs on a 24/7 basis.  In addition, we hold a UK CAA and EASA approved Continuing Airworthiness Management Organization (CAMO) delegation to support European airlines and lessors with their continuing airworthiness needs. 

Every client's operation is unique, with its own requirements and operational needs. CAVOK works to embrace these differences while still meeting regulatory requirements and continuous quality improvement objectives. Clients include international, domestic, scheduled, unscheduled, premium and low cost air carriers, transit agencies, Class 1 railroads, as well as Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) facilities, regulatory bodies, lessors and financiers. 

We also draw on the strategic expertise of our parent company, Oliver Wyman.  By combining the operational knowledge of CAVOK with Oliver Wyman’s management consulting experience in the transportation industry, our clients gain access to unique depth and breadth of experience, tools, and acumen.
