We understand both the science and art of aircraft accident investigation (AAI), and that most crashes and failures don't conveniently come with "black boxes." In other words, along with satisfying scientific methodologies, a unique blend of actual "hands-on" engineering, maintenance, piloting, and field investigation experience is required to (i) effectively piece together all available evidence concerning the person, machine, and environment; (ii) know how to "read" the wreckage; (iii) be innovative and creative enough to affordably analyze or test for potential causes and contributing factors within a reasonable timeframe, and (iv) clearly articulate what happened in a way that's easy to understand. Years of being both true aviators and teachers make us very effective experts. 

In addition to our comprehensive AAI services, we offer AAI training and research to colleges, professional associations, and aviation companies. We've provided these services to Wichita State University's Aerospace Engineering Department, Boeing, National Institute of Aviation Research (Wichita, KS), Lewis University's Aviation Department (Romeoville, IL), Professional Aircraft Maintenance Association, and SAE Aerospace International. Similar to conducting an AAI, teaching isn't a job to us ... it's a passion.
