Our Passion for Safety Management
Omni Air Group was formed in 1997 as an aviation consulting firm. In 2004, Paul Salerno was conducting research into the certification of new-entrant 121 carriers under ATOS. While attending ATOS and System Safety courses at the FAA Academy in Oklahoma City, Paul discovered Safety Management Systems. Drawing on his 18 years of experience as an owner, operator and aviation key manager, Paul quickly realized that SMS can save lives, improve employee morale, and actually enhance an organization’s bottom line; his passion for SMS was born.
In the summer of 2005 Omni Air Group shifted its focus from compliance-based consulting to development of the company’s Quality SMS products and services, in response to new SMS requirements under ICAO Annexes 6, 11 & 14. OAG recognized the need to integrate quality management principles, as well as modern information technology within the structure of SMS. A formal SMS Program was developed, and ATOS safety attributes were incorporated to achieve the highest level of safety.
Teaming up with award-winning software developer Rich Stuart, Rich’s Incident Reporter™ (IR) database was then further developed and refined to align with the OAG Quality SMS and meet ICAO, Transport Canada and FAA functional requirements for risk management, documentation and controls. IR is currently in use by over 70 aviation service providers, worldwide. Now in its 12th year, OAG delivers the highest quality SMS products and services, and is a leader in professional SMS development.
Omni Air Group’s directors and key managers possess decades of experience as owners and operators of various aviation and information technology enterprises. Our aviation expertise comes from the “real world” side of industry, and includes experience with FAA and DOT certification, FAA civil penalties and certificate actions, aviation insurance and countless lessons learned.
