Our integrated range of services include:
Financial Modelling

We use a best practice, standardised approach for our model build and review engagements. Our deliverables are robust, well-structured and easily understood.

Internal Audit

We use our aviation industry experience and expertise to complete a genuine risk based, top-down approach. In addition to bringing best practice methodology for creation of internal audit plans and testing of controls, the composition of our team enables us to consider risks/controls/processes with respect to their impact on financial statements and to analyse opaque areas within the aviation industry such as maintenance reserves/ reimbursements.

CMS and Maintenance Reserve (MR) subject matter experts

We have reviewed over 8% of commercial leases within the industry. We use proprietary methodology and workbooks for recalculation of reserve fund balances in order to provide assurance over MR fund values at a point in time and to identify under-billing.

Our process improvement knowledge of best practice within the aircraft leasing industry enables us to challenge the business on existing processes and offer alternatives.
