Desktop Aviation Safety Audits and Assessments
In the case of a “one off or short notice charter” or where clients would like to have an operator pre-qualified for the possibility of priority assistance such as in the event of exploration or cyclone evacuation, a desktop audit can be conducted to confirm that the basic required levels of aviation safety management, inclusive of client aviation safety standard requirements and expectations are in place. The desktop auditing process includes making contact with the proposed service provider prior to operations and completing the aviation safety specific “due diligence” process.
