Aviation Services

With over a decade of experience in the development and improvement of complex systems and infrastructure, we bring together extensive project, human performance, communication and safety methodology to deliver safe air traffic operations.

Plan Safe consultants have delivered safety assurance programs for some of the most exciting aviation projects in the world and offer a profound understanding of the needs and complexities inherent in the design, build and implementation of transport systems.

We’ll work closely with your team, stakeholders, clients, government bodies and regulators to meet the assurance, accreditation, risk and training requirements of all parties.

  • Urban Air Mobility (UAM)

    Plan Safe consultants have participated in the planning for UAM with a focus on electrical vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft. Our Plan Safe experts will guide the development of your safety policies and ATM airspace safety considerations to ensure you meet evolving regulator standards and are optimised for future demand.

  • Digital and Remote Tower Technology

    With reduced air traffic and associated revenue now being experienced across the globe, investment in remote towers is increasing. Our consultants provide extensive experience in the implementation of remote tower technology, safety requirements and operations. We will provide technology recommendations for your unique needs, lead the integration of remote tower software with existing ATM systems and engage your people (users, key stakeholders and regulators) in the process.

  • Transforming raw data into risk intelligence

    Plan Safe consultants established innovative research programs that harness the latest eye-tracking and physiological sensing technology to gain key safety insights into operational workload and fatigue, using real-time human performance data to support operational and strategic safety, resourcing and change management decisions.

An eye to the future

Plan Safe has an intimate knowledge of both the current and emerging air traffic management landscape with our team at the forefront of aviation technology. We are focused on the implementation of safety systems that protect people and assets while ensuring our clients are ready for changing consumer behaviour.

Safety and support services for air traffic management

Our consultants understand the unique challenges and opportunities of the industry with more than 30 years of experience with air navigation service providers (ANSP) such as Airservices Australia, NATS UK, and Singapore CAAS.

Offering extensive knowledge of the current ANSP landscape and its future, we are working on a number of innovations in this field to meet changing consumer habits. Plan Safe can deliver future-proof safety outcomes for your systems, people, passengers and the public.

We provide a full range of expert services to the air traffic management industry, including:

  • Systems safety training for air traffic control

    Our team and strategic partners have delivered systems safety courses to civil and defence aviation clients across Australia, New Zealand, Asia and Europe. We provide system safety courses that equip participants with the skills to manage system safety during the entire product lifecycle, as well as courses on aviation safety management systems.

    Our courses are designed for aviation project managers and engineers involved in the development or modification of communications, navigation and surveillance (CNS) and ATM systems, as well as operational staff involved in the development or change of ATM operational aspects such as airspace changes and procedures.

    Plan Safe courses are targeted to the specific audience with our ‘fundamentals of aviation safety’ courses available for managers and those with safety as part of their overall responsibilities. Our advanced courses provide further detail for civil and defence aviation safety practitioners, exploring the relevant methods and standards used for achieving safe outcomes in the aviation industry.

  • Operational safety and safety change management

    Implementing any new technology can be a challenge, particularly when it comes to meeting the requirements of safety-focused service providers and regulators. Plan Safe will help you effectively navigate these challenges while ensuring consistent, outcome-focused engagement both internally and externally.

    Our approach to functional safety and human factors in the design and implementation of CNS/ATM systems is pragmatic, giving you the opportunity to reduce risk, maximise opportunities and provide operational improvements through user-centred design.

    Plan Safe has also led multiple new technology projects from a safety perspective by delivering technological solutions for air traffic control and other high-risk environments.

  • Safety management systems for airport operations

    We are experts at creating tailored and effective SMS for ANSPs, ATM suppliers and other complex organisations.

    We work with you to ensure systems address all ICAO and local regulatory and operational requirements. Our team has experience developing integrated management systems that address safety, risk, quality, environment and human factors.

    Our consultants use advanced User Experience (UX) Document Engineering techniques to ensure SMS users comprehend and retain the safety information critical to their work.

    Our expert team can also provide auditing and appraisal of SMS to ensure systems are compliant and effectively implemented.

  • Risk management and governance programmes

    We have expertise in providing holistic governance, risk and compliance (GRC) services to clients. We focus on the continual research and development of new and innovative change and risk management processes, techniques and applications.

    Our GRC services include the establishment of accreditation and competency frameworks, policies, plans and evaluation of organisational risk management maturity, as well as recommendations.
