About Us

Air Operations Expertise

In today’s Operational Environment, the combination of on-going regulatory demands, the need to manage costs and the constant delivery of safety can be a difficult balancing act.

The latest changes in the European regulatory framework undoubtedly present new challenges for all Air Operators, in both commercial and general aviation. Yet the changes also offer significant opportunities to fully integrate the management of safety into the business, for commercial and competitive advantage.

Our Expertise

Baines Simmons is a proven leader in supporting organisations through regulatory change and the implementation of effective safety management systems.

All our consultants are experts, who are passionate and focussed on offering practicable solutions, to help people make our profession safer.

Through effective leadership and responsive focussed training, our expert consultants don’t just talk it! They have years of 'hands-on' experience, influencing, implementing and researching best practices. They have seen it; they have heard it and they have delivered.
