Aircraft operators must ensure that their platforms are able to operate without significant hazard to aircrew, ground crew, passengers (where relevant) or to the general public over the areas where such airborne systems are flown. Airworthiness presents a classic “system of systems” problem, which requires a comprehensive and balanced approach to ensure cost effective engineering and operational solutions are developed.
In additional to ensuring the inherent safety characteristics of the platform (e.g. airframe, engines, flight control systems etc) mission related systems also need to be given equal consideration. Flight Management, Communications and Navigation Systems can present significant safety hazards to aircraft and their occupants in today’s crowded airspace, if not managed correctly.
Airworthiness depends on effective;
- Operational Requirement Capture
- Fully Integrated Design, Test and Evaluation process
- Use of Competent People and Organisations
- Use of Industry Best Practice & Intelligent Application of Recognised Standards
- Implementation of an Effective Safety Management System

...Their input to the whole process was pivotal to it's success and it says much for the quality of the work completed that Phase 1 was achieved on time and using a "green field" scenario that was unusual in terms of achieving regulatory approval. Phase 2 was delivered on budget and on time which would not have been achieved without the excellence of product delivered by Osprey Consulting Services Ltd. As a group we will have no hesitation in utilising them in future works should the occasion arise.
