Oliver Wyman



Oliver Wyman CAVOK is the global leader in technical consulting and services for passenger, cargo and startup airlines.

Oliver Wyman CAVOK offers technical consulting that supports the development of Part 121, Part 135, and Part 145 manual systems, policies, procedures and processes. We navigate the highly regulated transportation sector by:
  • Harmonizing to safety management system (SMS) concepts
  • Capturing industry best practices
  • Satisfying the unique regulatory requirements.

We are the leading air carrier certification consultancy in the United States and are an FAA Qualified Certification Consultant (FCC). We have supported nearly every North American airline merger since 2008. In addition, we design and optimize asset maintenance inspection programs and assist operators with the associated reliability data collection and analysis necessary to maintain and enhance those programs.  Lastly, as experts in transportation operations, we provide highly relevant and tactical advisory support for the improvement of flight and maintenance operations, as well as implementation support for the various IT and technology systems used by transportation companies.

Our other major focus is providing ad-hoc as well as long-term technical support and airworthiness management services, including engineering, maintenance programs, planning, materials, technical publications, technical writing, records and compliance recording for airlines, railroads, plant operators, and MROs on a 24/7 basis.  In addition, we hold a UK CAA and EASA approved Continuing Airworthiness Management Organization (CAMO) delegation to support European airlines and lessors with their continuing airworthiness needs. 

Every client's operation is unique, with its own requirements and operational needs. Oliver Wyman CAVOK works to embrace these differences while still meeting regulatory requirements and continuous quality improvement objectives. Clients include international, domestic, scheduled, unscheduled, premium and low-cost air carriers, transit agencies, as well as Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) facilities, regulatory bodies, lessors and financiers. 

We also draw on the strategic expertise of our parent company, Oliver Wyman.  By combining the operational knowledge of Oliver Wyman CAVOK with Oliver Wyman’s management consulting experience in the transportation industry, our clients gain access to unique depth and breadth of experience, tools, and acumen.
