Apave Aeroservices has developed standardised processes (in-house check lists, Root Causes Analysis, safety assessment methodologies, KPIs …) to strengthen its project management, which is supported by a continuous improvement and project quality management policy. We have designed, tested and implemented state-of-the-art risk assessment methodologies to continuously improve the services provided to key aviation stakeholders, civil and military authorities as well as defence companies.

This has been applied to fixed, rotary wing and unmanned aircraft systems.

Witnessing the growing use of UAS in civil and military operations, Apave decided 2015 to work on a UAS specific risk assessment methodology called Certidrones®, which was welcomed by civil and military UAV operators in Europe.

To perform such services, Apave Aeroservices has developed in-house check lists based on regulatory compliance but also on the safety performance. A complete report over the targeted air operator is then delivered, including an executive summary presenting the overall evaluation and risks areas supported by a range of simple and easy reading indicators.
