Courses top banner 18

Brochure ButtonAviation is an incredibly complex business environment. Demands placed on the organisation and individuals to deliver are often considerable and place a burden on key individuals.

On a daily basis, Operators and Managers make decisions in real-time, weighing the probability and severity of any adverse consequences implied by the risk against the expected gain of taking the risk. (This process is known as risk management.” - ICAO).

We accept that absolute safety is generally an unachievable and very expensive goal, therefore the concept of acceptable safety has been adopted in aviation. The term “acceptable risk” describes an event with a probability of occurrence and consequences acceptable to the society.
