Safety Management Consulting
Jim Cannon, Principal Consultant, for Sundog Aviation Safety, worked within the business aviation community as a pilot, aviation director, business owner, author, lecturer, safety program manager, and industry advocate for more than forty years following his active duty commitment as a Naval Aviator in 1973. Most recently, as the IS-BAO Program Director for the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC), Jim was a voting member of the Safety Management Panel, formed by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) to review and recommend amendments to Annex 19, (Safety Management Systems). He held that post for 2 years and in that capacity, the sole business aviation member, ensured that the interests of the business aviation community were represented.
Sundog Aviation is certified by IBAC as an International Standards Support Services Affiliate (ISSSA) for both the IS-BAO and IS-BAH programs. With expertise in both operations and facilities management, Sundog Aviation is uniquely qualified to provide assistance in the development of an organizations safety program.
Should a Sundog Aviation consulting client require the services of an Auditor to validate conformity with either IS-BAO or IS-BAH programs, we stand ready to recommend several alternatives for that important aspect of the registration process with IBAC. As a provider of consulting services, Sundog Aviation would not be eligible to conduct an audit of the support it has provided to a particular client; “It is not ethical to audit your own work”. There are many outstanding auditing firms as well as individual auditors that have been servicing the industry for more than a decade and it would be our pleasure to provide our clients with contact information, should the need arise.
